Wow. Great photos, Patrick. And this one looked quite purple
on my screen.
Kitty in rainy Ojai where the pictures were like a glimpse of spring.

Here is a picture of an iris that bloomed for
me a couple weeks ago. It is called Doubletime. I believe it
is a '00 introduction, and I am sorry but I do not know who the hybridizer
is. Those records are stored away in the other computer and I have
not transferred the files yet. I was dissapointed when I photographed
it because the color did not come out correct. The color of the pigment
should be purple and instead it came out blue. I understand this
is a common thing for blues to come out purple and purples to come out
blue when using film, however, once I got a digital camera this problem
seemed to have been fixed. I have been in contact with Kodak regarding
this and they feel I need to send my camera in to be fixed. They
say it should capture the "true" color of the subject, and feel my camera
needs some adjusting. I am checking into this later today, for I
want the camera up to snuff for the R15 Spring Trek in San Diego Apr 27-29th. Anyway,
back to the photo. This iris's color should look a little darker
purple than AUTUMN TRYST. Enjoy! Patrick OrrPhoenix, AZ
