Seeing Red




We are enjoying a wonderful Easter weekend staying with my parents-in-love who live in a nearby coastal village. The weather has been prefect (so far). Tonight their extremely slow and unreliable internet is a little faster so I'll attempt to share some of my favourite photos from today.....


                                                                                                                                             Available for purchase here




Beautiful bold reds, all the more stunning amongst greens and deep blues.

Such beautiful photos my friend. I do hope you are enjoying you time with your family..

Barb said...

Looks beautiful and serene there! I thought of you this weekend - practicing with the macro. I'm not good at it yet - need to be steadier. I tried it with tripod, but don't think that's any easier for me and sure don't like dragging the equipment. Love your shots, though.

Love the mushroom/toadstool among the feathery fern-like leaves!!!! And of course, you just can't go wrong with any watery image if you want my opinion. The beautiful hibiscus blossom...they always are great for macros!!
