Blooming again........

By Mollycat
......... on my return from Somerset found this Renaissance in full pomp. Its third flush along with others.

Thank you for looking in and commenting on ' Scene from a train '. Regarding those pictures I've been trying on my trips to capture shots from a moving train. They where all crap. On the last occasion I tried panning.. An improvement. So this time I pressed my face against the window looked far up the track, in this case the church, focused, moved away from the window until the church passed by and was vanishing down the tract, then fired. Did the same with the other two. Next time I'll try again in case these where a fluke.

Very nice color combination the pink of the rose with the almost black of the background, makes the flower look more beautiful. Excellent photo, Peter!
