A nice little shrub in our garden, which I only know as 'Forest Fire'.....don't know the 'proper' name of it ??
The new shoots are bright red, & fade to orange, yellow, then green, as the leaves below........
I just loved the colour contrast between the reds & greens......but I've added a bit of texture to the old
leaves, to emphasise their 'fading', though in truth they are an 'evergreen'........
Many thanks for your response to 'Coastal Knapweed', with special thanks to Irishkate for the UA !!.
Love the angle of capture Carol
this just jumps out ofthe screen ... lovely colours
wonderful leaves, nice and shiny and I like your little beasties
Great caption, great image.
Love the contrasts and I do like that texturing.
A winner in my eyes.
Lovely tones and I like the 2 invaders.
Good shot Keith,but I am a bit disappointed after reading your title.
I thought you were on a reunion with your old Scouting buddies sitting
round a campfire singing about your Ging Gang Goolies !!
A pieris japonica, Keith. I like your overhead pov with the layers of star shaped leaves. The texture works well, too.
A good perspective and great light colour and detail.
!!....cheers Mick !!......that comment really made my day !!!!!
Can you imagine a 6ft-4in 'Scout'....in shorts ?????, & I definitely can't sing, & you really don't want
to know about my Ging-gang-goolies..........what a terrifying thought, even for me !!!!!.
Hope your high-heels aren't crippling your feet ?????????.
Excellent composed image Keith.
It's quite an exotic looking shrub which must bring a bright splash of colour to the garden, Keith: obviously other smaller critters appear to find it appealing too.
Very nice crisp and colourful shot.
They do have the most wonderful new red growth, very well captured especially with the beasties!
A spectacular plant indeed!
Grate colours,and composition, lovely image Keid.
I like how you have filled the frame with colours of the forest flower making a nice picture.
Is it "Mountain Fire"? See here.
as your say the contrsting colours are very pleasing and the two wee beasties seem to like as well
My scouting days came to an end when I was dismissed for turning up in my high heels !!
(And for once a true story here.My troup was disbanded after the scout master ran of too New Zealand with the brownie mistress and with the money from the scout and brownie funds !!)
Thanks Pamela & Dave for the ID.....Pieris Japonica it is !!!
Hi Mick....I'd have loved to have seen your arrival !!!.......perhaps your old scout-master
started up 'Home & Away'.....or even writes the scripts ????
Superb shot. Like the surrounding leaves and the texture they have. . Paul
Wonderful POV and super shot
Nice work on the leaves and super detail in the flower - including the little friends
Terrific comp and colours! Very nice presentation!
Striking image - texturing works well.
Fantastic image with very nice tones and colour..........real cracker...
Great work Keith!
Great contrasting colours Keith.. With the added texturing for flavour.. Crowd pleaser
A fantastic generic name for this wonderful burst of colour Keith, who cares about the Latin name.
I love the composition
Now that I have stopped laughing at you and Mick, I think this is a gorgeous shot Keith. Beautiful colour and so sharp. Even a couple of wee visitors on it. Moira
Mind those ants dont go up your shorts.
Gorgeous photography and a fantastic gallery!
Lovely work,beautiful colour and so sharp,love your title..Lin
Love the colour and texture
Very good angle and processing
Simply beautiful Keith
Love the artistic work and the comp!
Excellent capture of this beautiful plant - your post processing gives it very special finish ... Carol
Really like how you presented this. The larger leaves made a great background.
Gorgeous shot and beautifully presened...........
Loads of impact,well presented.
Well done! Great capture and presentation I love it!
