Holy maccaroni!! Great colors, and a great reminder for me too...I live in Norway, and it looks like spring is lightyears away...Needed thisone.
painterly at minimal DOF - gives a nice threedimensional feeling with the blur at the edges
It's dreary here today in Chicagoland... it snowed this morning -- and now the temps are hovering just above freezing, making for some nice muddy slush -- not a good thing to run my dog through... Anyway -- your image brings color and freshness to my day -- thanks... I am a bit distracted by the white blobby thingy in the upper center/rightish... makes me wonder if there was someone standing in the background with a t-shirt on...
Love these last two posts. Spring is in full bloom here: cherry, plum and peach trees line the streets and the odd magnolia can be found as well.
This was taken inside a greenhouse. The white area is probably a window.
Everything looks better big and this photo is no exception. At a big size the white is less of a distraction and you can really see the detail in the parts of the flower that is sharply focussed.
It's going to be a long while yet before we see blossoms on the trees! It snowed last night.
snowed here too -- i'm sick and tired of the gloom....
more flowers, please!!!!!
Wow! The apparent depth of this shot is quite extraordinary.
