I'm thinking about packing my bag and heading into the hills for a couple of hours if I can today, I saw a great patch of soft thistles I'd like to catch. They are a few feet away from these bluebells

I did get out and about, the light was pretty bad but I think I got one or two decent pictures. I also left my keys up the hill on the grass, so had to climb all the way back up again with camera, tripod et al after I got to the car and couldn't get in! I'll put a pic or two up once I've chewed through them.

Beautiful blues and violets, Heather. Looks like a good place to get away.

I specially love the 1st photo Bluebells. The vignetting really accentuates the overall photo.

I always find the images you take of flowers to be beautiful not only IQ wise but also regarding composition and contrast.

Thanks Phoenix :)
I'll take credit for the composition ( I rarely crop) but the contrast etc is Aperture 3 really. I have a great big pile of pictures I need to go through and process, so I'll hopefully have more up here soon.

Very nice image Robert, I really love the detail in the shot and the tones you used for the B&W.

I have no idea what this is :)
A totally random shot from today.
Very nice shot, particularly like the background spot. It really highlights the flower. I used to know what these were called, but alas, I've forgotten. All I remember is that they are pink, look like demented bunny rabbits and can cause great distress to horses if they eat them.

Thanks.
They do look a little like rabbits don't they :)
I had though they were some sort of clover flower.
Here is the color version.

Both photos look great, and it's a great example of expression change when presenting in b&w or color are great images, the b&w has a more classic, gothic and almost surreal or abstract expression whereas the color has a more modern flower and almost macro-like feel to it :)
