Clematis are an amazing family of climbing vines. Their flowers and colors are so varied and while they are a mainstay in gardens throughout the world their roots are in Asia. It's funny how some things become so commonplace that we forget about their origins.
It was a cold wet day today and although you can't tell by this photo it was taken in the rain. I deliberately overexposed this photo first because all that white tricks the camera's meter but also because I wanted something a little more high key. The important details are intact although some highlights are a little blown out but the effect is what I wanted.
