One of our first rhododendrons taken recently.
Glad you all enjoyed the quirky bottle (cost 50p)
and the kinky lamp with it yesterday! (Yes Trev - got the message -no two subjects vying for attention!)
Special thanks to Billy (williamsloan) for his User Award.
Hope the sun shines on you all this week.

Very hard to capture flowers in situ this year without their being drenched in water, but droplets do enhance many such a shot, as you have shown here, Kate.

Lots of detail here Kate with a good exposure. You have isolated the flower so well from the BG...John

You have controlled the white exposure very well Kate, and it stands out well against the dark out of focus background.
