Thank you to everybody that voted and commented on my `Silly Sunday` image yesterday.

Onto todays image. And back to flowers. One i came across at Swanbourne Lake in Arundel. It caught my eye due to the size of it, i`d say it stood about 9 feet tall(could not really think of a good title,sorry Smile ). If anybody could ID it (I will upload a 2nd image with it all showing) i would appreciate it Smile

Two equally as beautiful pieces, however I think I prefer the cropped version.

Thank you Nathan, John, Ayoob, Christine and Graham.

It was a shame i could not get a shot of all of it form a different angle where the lodge was not in the image, so just had to use V2 to show size of it really Smile

This is a white Hollyhocks, Mark: they are quite impressive reaching well above other plants in the border.
Very nicely captured shot.

No problem Keith, personally i did not think the detail was good enough for the image to deserve a crop. I was getting soaked so they were rushed shots Smile

The composition and detail of V1 is just right, not an easy subject as like foxgloves they are so tall. Great wuite tones too.

well done with the whites, they are always quite tricky. V1 as Carole says.

Thank you Carole and Annette.

I think it helped with the fact it was pouring it down at the time so was quite dull, no bright sun to ruin the whites on the flower. Whites are always hit or miss.
