full bloom


Nikon D70 @ 70mm, 1/2000 sec, f/4.5, ISO 200


Previous · Current · Next


It's been a while since I've been able to get that kind of shutter speed! I took this shot last weekend when the sun was out and the weather was glorious. Given that the weather was back to being crap again today, I thought that this one might cheer me up.

Summer is coming, and I can't wait...

Gorgeous shot, lovely mix of colour and great depth of field. I took a walk past those same tulips earlier this week, they're just irrestible!
By the way, is that shutter speed really 4.5s?

Thanks for pointing that out Phil! It was 1/2000 sec and not 4.5 sec! Yeah, the flowers in the gardens are absolutely spectacular just now.

Your pics are pretty amazing, nice job! I'm looking forward to seeing more photos. Is the Nikon D70 working out well by the way?

Lovely shot! I love that shallow DoF, but the composition with the people in the background really make this. Ooh, I love summer days!

I enjoy the stories in your photographs. The title of this story would be "Walking in Love, the Path of Flowers." Flowers are associated with love and in the photo the couple are walking together down a path of vibrant colourful flowers. Amongst the flowers that are predominately yellow in colour, there are a pair of red flowers side by side- just like the couple. It is as if they have popped up their heads to see who else in the world is in love! Andybro
