waves of pink

    October 2, 2010: This photo took 2nd place in the "August Contest - Pink Theme" in the group Living Jewels of Nature. Thank you very much!

    What a difference another week makes in the dahlia garden at South Coast Botanic Garden! A week ago only four or five dahlia varieties were blooming, but that number had more than doubled when I visited last Sunday (June 27). This is a close view of the first dinner plate dahlia to bloom, and I loved the wavy curls of its vivid petal tips. (Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/125 sec., ISO 200, overcast skies, handheld -- no crop)

    Must see the large version on black!
