This image of Hamelia patens was taken at the Botanic Gardens on one fine day. Common names include firebush, hummingbird bush, scarlet bush, and redhead. I took the image in the early morning when flowers were fresh and the sunlight not so strong. The tone presents the flowers well in the image. I did not find the flower in other parks.

Photograph Location: Singapore
Photographer: Siew Bee Lim (Singapore) Registered
Born in 1965 in Singapore, photography was one of the old hobbies of Siew Bee Lim. Now she would like to learn it formally via Light & Composition platform as she believes it’s not too late. Since primary school she is not good in drawing; she doesn’t have artistic hand that some of her classmates have. Nonetheless, she likes reading since young, and would try to appreciate Chinese paintings. Few years after she started working as a Programmer, she took up photography as a hobby. She attended a short course which included a session in the darkroom. In those days, good photographs were dependent on good darkroom skills. It was unlikely that she spent much time in the darkroom. Hence the hobby didn’t last long then. She believes that the present learning experience has a longer way to go.
