I decided to go against the grain and post Spring, even though I am in the Northern Hemisphere. These are my favorites of all, Blue Hydrangeas, that Tricia and I found while in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
I had a great time at the concert last night, best seats in the house, got to meet Marc Broussard backstage and I got some great shots. Had about 4 hours sleep so I am tired today! HAHA!
Have a great day!

Hi LInda,
This blue hydrangeas deserves totaly your title!
What superb nuances you got! These blue are at the opposite colors of autum ones, indeed!
Very nicely done!

Hi Linda - yes that's our both colour ...
I love the different tones in this hydrangea - one of my favourite flowers.
The arrangement is so pretty, thanks.
Shelby is again here, I were happy she wrote me. I hope she also will be here more often.
Greetings to you both

Perfectly sharp and strong contrast deep blue and deep green of the background.
Best regards

Hi Linda,

My dad has a huge blue hydrangea plant near his patio. I've always enjoyed the blue flowers. These also dry quite nicely by the way. :) Your photo is lovely with the different shades of blue. This is such a delicate flower and you show the petals sharply, yet they still look delicate and soft. Great variations of color in this. It's beautiful. :) Lisa

Hi Linda!

Perfect picture! You have created outstanding volume! Colours of the flowers and background are beautiful!


Hi, Linda -
Just beautiful - love the horizontal bars of colors. Wonderful soft light and fine, sharp detail. Perfect background of deep green leaves and I like the diagonal orientation of the flowers. I've seen enough autumn - your spring image looks great to me!

I like the muted and diffused light on these Linda.. I thought at first this was a film/mamiya shot but see that it was ONLY digital!! Good sharpness, perfect DOF and great colour....

Still summer here - well it feels like it :-(


Hi Linda,
Cheerful Hydrangeas perfect captured with amazing sharpness on the details (petals) The brightness and contrast are spot on every square inch is well lightened. A cheerful picture my dear!
