Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra


It was said that a beautiful photo is one thing, but a photo with an unexpected detail has personality and pop. For this week’s photo challenge, what my entry has particularly speaks about the former.

This plant, which I stumbled on the wilderness of Mount Manalmon in Bulacan a couple of years ago, is one of those that give blooms of the brightest vermilion after the transient cold season in the Philippines. That brilliant scarlet red you see is the very element that makes the subject extra, extra striking.

      Much as I want to help you with the paln’s name I can’t. Tried asking some friends and “googling” but to no avail.

    That is a great close-up shot. love how you managed to make the thin strips of petals stand out. It looks like a very thick flower, but a flower that carries a lot of beauty 🙂
