One thing that is fantastic about clematis is that it is not uncommon to get additional blooms long after the first flush in early summer. Even though I am well aware of this fact, it was still a nice surprise this morning to see a few ‘Henryi’ blossoms in my neighbor’s garden.

"Swan Lake" (Hybrid Clematis 'Henryi') Nikon D300, 105mm macro, F/14, 1/500s, -0.3EV, ISO 200, SB800 w/Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud, -1.3EV

"Sky High" (Hybrid Clematis 'Henryi') Nikon D300, 105mm macro, F/14, 1/500s, -0.3EV, ISO 200, SB800 w/Gary Fong Lightsphere Cloud, -1.3EV

I didn’t have many angle options from which to shoot this second-chance flower as it was situated fairly high on the vine and growing close to the corner of a shingled garage. The best choice was simply to aim the lens upward, using the crystal clear blue sky as a backdrop.

Thanks, Henryi! 🙂

  1. Ooh, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen white clematis. This is very striking, especially against the lovely blue sky.

    • Really?? You need to get you some! Both Henryi and Lanuginosa candide are both beautiful varieties!

      Thanks, Karma! 🙂
