While walking along an esker on a cold wet day in Saskatchewan, I came upon these Blue Bells amongst the boughs of spruce. It brings thoughts of Christmas already.

I have a great respect for this shot. I must have tried 10 different outings to try and get a good shot of this kind of flower. Do you think one of them turned out to be any good? Not at all. They always seem to grow in the most useless spot. Very very nice. I wish i could have got one like this.

nicely captured with the morning dew
and what a difference that makes, together with the slight misting/softfocus yet crystal sharpness
great saturated colours

quiet gentle and peaceful ... i can almost hear the starts of the dawn chorus

already in my faves gallery :)

Maybe a tad too soft for my old eyes but a pretty presentation and composition nonetheless. I like the colors, water, and bell positioning. What most impresses me is the lighting. As for Christmas? Anyday, bring it on! ;)

Hi Darryl, these are positively wonderful indeed! The color is divinely blue-grey and they are engulfed in rich greens and coated with huge tear drops of rain, pretty special I would say! If I were voting, this image would be worthy of my big 10's for sure! Welcome home, and hope your vacation was everything you wanted it to be! Sincerely, Marilyn

While perusing your gallery, I came upone this image! It looks like a painting Darryl! The softness is breathtakingly beautiful. The drops of moisture, the color of the flowers, even the dark green as a background make this another outstanding image. Right into my fav;s on my harddrive for one of those snowy days when I need to be reminded of sun & warmth & flower power! :*)

Now these are Beau-ti-ful!! The way the image has a soft look to it and the detail within this shot is exceptional. Great capture on the water droplets and the overall shot is just wonderful. Two thumbs up for you :)

Just wanted to let you know that I got this image in the voting booth.....gave it high marks...had promptly forgotten it was yours (doggone old age) but immediately downloaded it as my new desktop and then when I finished voting, is yours! I still love it 6 months later!! I can have Christmas in June! :~)
Thanks again Darryl!
