And There Were Roses.....


These roses helped make my morning coffee in my backyard very enjoyable. Pretty soon, the Rose of Sharon bushes will be out in bloom. I just grabbed a shot of these with my 75 - 300 lens with a #4 close up filter attached, hand held.

Hi Dave,
I always enjoy your flower images. Well we had quite a bit of snow today. Not very good for some of our flowers.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for checking in. I remember one year after doing a wedding in North Bay on June 7th. It was a garden wedding, and everyone wore sun dresses, etc. Next morning, there was 5 inches of snow on the ground!!! Thanks for your comments. The wind was blowing, so I figured a tripod was useless. I took my chances with hand holding, and in camera body image stabilizer. Not perfect, but not bad....Dave
