This image depicting a flower bed of assorted glowers in my front garden, was captured during a brief spell of sunshine after the rain, which lasted no more than twenty minutes. Then ever since it has continued to rain. I shall be of to Wickes for some more timber to carry out with the construction of the 'Ark' if this continues, hope you ll have a great day, whatever the weather.

How pretty. Well done for getting out in such a brief window of sunlight. Smile
We had sun for the first time in weeks yesterday, but the rain's back today. All my plants are waterlogged and rotting.

Great shot with a good aray of colours. One goods thing I like is that you are very articulate (is that how you spell it? Dyslexic) when it comes to photography, many stick to certain subjects where as some like yourself can work a treat on what ever subject you you choose,, to me thats a good photographer. Keep it up mate..

Love the way the eye is drawn into the image across the f/g blur while the b/g blur stops the gaze from wandering too far. In other words, careful and intelligent use of depth of field. The colours are extremely pleasing. It's good to see flowers in context.

Bill
