Purple Columbine

This Purple Columbine is located just a few feet from the scene below. I decided to put a #4, close up filter on my 35 ~ 105 zoom lens, and get a little closer to the flower. It was nicely backlit by the late afternoon sun, and I really enjoy the regal colours. Terri and Henry's gardens are just lovely, and it will be more than a few years before we will have anything remotely so on our side of the fence. But while I was shooting this flower, I could not help but think of my relatives and friends in the north, who are having to endure a late spring snowstorm today. So Mike, this one is for you. Hope you enjoy, and get better weather real soon......
