Morning Bloom

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you all so very much for all your great comments, messages and votes following yesterdays upload. A further mention going to AnneB50 (Anne) for her GE Award for which I am most grateful.

Todays image was captured whilst roaming the gardens of the home. I think it is some form of Clematis as it was steadily working its way over a rather hight trellis.

I have included a monochrome variant for comparison which I hope you will like just as much.

I hope that you all have a great day and thank you all for your continued support.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin

A beautiful botanical image here, Nathan, with the colour version a tadge ahead in my preference.
I have been speculating about buying one of those macro lenses. Nice piece of glass.

Wonderfully detailed capture Nathan, V1 my favourite.

Jenny Smile
Both beautiful, Nathan. It is so interesting how the monochrome, of course, becomes a study in form, and the color a study of color and drama.
