I like this one Ed.
And it has nothing to do with the fact
that some girls called me an Adonis in the past !!

Good detailed capture again Ed, beautiful colour and condition on this Blue.


Good one Ed! Good job I cried off today - now in bed after 3 hors in a&e with the empty tooth socket that won't stop bleeding!! That would've been no good at Stroud! Lou

Nice one,
Effective top down composition works really well. Particularly like the limited colour palette of blues and greens.

This is a beauty Ed. If you had a mirror image you would create a butterfly flower.

Delightful viewing, Ed - love the OOF flowers which lend a dreamy quality to this delicately toned image.
