I’ve been trying to take some photos of bromeliads, but it’s been very difficult. They live in a shady spot and hide among their sharp serrated leaves. I can’t capture the colour, the deepness of the red. They seem to reflect a bright light, even without a flash they glow.
I ended up using a telephoto lense, no flash, small aperture and a very long exposure time (5 – 13 seconds). Even so, they defy capture.

Shy looking plants……peeping out….maybe you need to say some things and make them blush….then quickly photograph them !

Dangerous aliens more like! The leaves are razor sharp…. cousin of the pineapple, but a lot weirder 😉
