I have not had much chance to get out and take any pictures recently, a few flowers from the garden is about the sum of it. This is one of the many Aquiliega's Mrs88 has growing in the garden, I think they are a fascinating flower but you only see top as they hang down like bonnets, so I thought I would post this showing the flower itself.
I shall be going away over the weekend for a few drinks with my brother in Cheltenham so after today I wont be about much until Monday.

Have a great weekend and thanks for looking.

Georgeous shot Matt. Love the shadow. Excellent detail and light. Only one teeny weeny crit. Was the rhs of the frame supposed to be wider than the lhs. My eye was drawn to it straight away and I find it a little distracting.

Interesting angle, people usually go for the profile view, for the 'swans' necks' look. This has a totally different character.

My first thought was that it was nice to see this beautiful flower from underneath. It's certainly not the usual angle, and is very refreshing to see.
