This is the best time of the year in the garden. It's full of beautiful flowers and it's a great place to be and read.

This photo was taken in May between some showers. (f8 1/60sec just a little bit of fill in flash)

Thank you for stopping and looking at my photos and leaving a comment or critique.
Thanks a lot for looking at my previous uploads if you have time.

Enjoy this great weather we're having at last after the rain.

I like this, the sharpness and droplets at the centre and the delicate softness of the peripheral petals. Very nice! Dan.

Lovely Rose shot, the detail is spot on, not always as easy as it looks with Roses.

Best Matt

A beautiful deep rich colour. Like the use of dof, with the outer petals delicately soft, focussing the eye on the beautiful water droplets in the centre.

The subdued lighting has made the velvet texture work well.
