Kissing the sky

    Newer Older

    A single yellow rose with delicate pink edges looks up to the sky. I captured this one at the Los Angeles County Arboretum during November, a peak rose season in Southern California. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/4.5, 1/125 sec., ISO 100, handheld)

      My apologies--I thought I commented on this the other day. Sometimes I think I forget to press the post button.

      The colors in this are so enticing, the romantic warms against the almost flat more neutral blue.....a softness in the range of colors that still seem to shout so that I will notice each subtle gradation!
