Yet another hauntingly beautiful image captured in a photographers coastal heaven. "Or should that be haven?"

Fabulous composition and dof Bill! This is wonderful - and FLOWERS taken by woolybill1! Whatever next - I'll just have to award you my UA in recognition!! SmileSmile
I like the soft bokeh with this lens, makes a shot like this really work.

A pretty looking flower, and nicely set against the background, which is just enough out of focus yet showing us its environment Smile

Ah yes Bill,the Viper's Bugloss here.
Or for the Botanists among us we know it as Echium Vulgare.
(Well,I did not know if it was a flower or a snake you uploaded so I had to consult Mr Google !!)
Good shot.

Lovely image with the blurry suggestion of a boat in the background. Thank you for giving me a name for this as yet unidentified (by me) flower. I will, henceforth, always refer to it as Echium Vulgare rather than as 'that pretty blue spiky thing' as in the last.

Love the old wooden ship in the BG, makes the image for me although the flowers are beautiful! PattiSmile

The out of focus boat certainly makes for a great backdrop, but... flowers, Bill ! TongueGrin

Excellent work Bill.


ps, I did something similar today although the out of focus background is a young lady. I've not had time or the energy to convert it from raw yet, if it's any good I'll upload it.

Super colour Bill, and nicely composed.

No idea if your title is the name of the flowers or of the boat, Bill. Or perhaps it is the marie Celeste? (The boat, not the flower!) And...not a fjord fjesta in sight.Grin

Excellent results on the dof front. Out of focus, but still recognisable without being distracting, and still a central part of the whole. Am I making sense?

Works so well with the dof and haunting blur of an old boat in the background. I'm guessing it's Dungeness by the other-worldly feel.
Pleased you liked the petrified forest Bill. Was the tide out revealing the ancient tree stumps when you and Moira visited?
