More Spring Flowers
Well, it is Spring so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Tulips keep wandering into the house. I stare at them for awhile, sigh, and get the camera out ... its like an addiction!
First into the house were a pair of light purple tulips. They sat on a shelf over the kitchen sink against the white wall. I applied a little softening to the images giving them (in my mind) a little whimsy:
After that nice softly colored pair, a very brash bouquet of Orange Tulips snuck into the house for Easter. They turned red over time. I tried ignoring them ... sigh. Click!
Then came my big mistake! I decided to have another go at the wild poppies in the Antelope Valley. Wow, the wind was blowing at 30-35 mph ... and if you remember my earlier missive about poppies ... they hate the wind ... most were closed up tighter than a drum. I found a group sheltered a bit behind a big clump of wild grass. They yielded these three images:
I zeroed in on one flower with my macro lens (it allows me to get close) and took this shot from above:
and then got down on my knees and took this favorite of the season:
I think that might it for Springtime flowers. Thank you, as always, for taking the time to look.
Bye for now,
