Simply gorgeous…..I need to take a few photos of our pink dogwoods before they fade away….something about any pink flowering tree that screams “SPRING” !!!!

Thank you, Pam (and Sam). I have tried several times this week to get some shots of Dogwoods, and I’m just not happy with the results. Maybe I’ll post one of them tomorrow. They’re very tricky to capture in the way that I envision. I can’t seem to cram everything that’s so wonderful about them into my image, while also getting close enough: I like macros you know 🙂

A veeeeeery beautiful picture, Lemony!

Thank you so much! Your comment really made my day!
Stunning! Would you mind if I used it for my spring post? It’s so beautiful – I will give you full credit as always!

Thank you so much! I would be honored if you used it, thank you.

Melanie, I think this is one of your BEST!! How beautiful. One is just drawn up into this floral clouds by the paths of the trunks. This one is a real winner. Love, Maman

Merci, Maman! I’m so glad you like it.

Love the POV and colors.

Wow, What a beautiful flower. It’s amazing.
April 10, 2012 at 12:40 pm
Very nice. The angle is spot on.

Thanks so much, Stevie.

Love the composition, point of view and of course, the color! Gorgeous!
April 10, 2012 at 1:44 pm
Thank you, Carissa. I’m really glad you like it. The colors are really just so vivid this time of year. Sometimes I can hardly believe my eyes!

This is a world class shot Lemony! You nailed this!
April 10, 2012 at 6:45 pm
Thanks, Michael! That is really so kind of you! I think I’m falling behind over on your site, but I’ll get there. I always catch up!
No worries Lemony, I am writing some longer pieces of fiction that more time to read. I have a guest blogger tomorrow with a shorter piece so you will be all good 🙂 Make sure you focus on your amazing work, I am not going anywhere 🙂

Beautiful picture. Don’t you just love Spring?! 😉
April 10, 2012 at 7:22 pm
I do love Spring, Yvonne! And it’s just bursting all over the place here. Thank you so much for your visit!

Hey, now, you outdid yourself this time. It is reminiscent of the giant redwood shots. The surprise is at the top! I can’t stop looking at it. 🙂 I am downloading it to play black and white. No, I won’t dis you by posting or sharing! 😉 (Only on my desktop…)

Nope, I couldn’t bring myself to sacrifice the color and texture. This pattern reaches the ground even with the sky showing through. I’m still staring at it. The composition astounds me. What an eye you have, child.
April 10, 2012 at 9:13 pm
It’s wonderful that you thought of the shots of the giant redwoods, because that is exactly the feeling I experienced (and hoped to convey) standing beneath these magnificent trees. I’m curious to have a look now, myself, at the shot in b&w. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about this photograph. As I’ve said before, I always find your feedback (positive or negative) to be so helpful.

What a beauty!
I don’t know how big this tree is, but it looks really gigantic, you chose a great angle to show us this tree.
Beautiful colors, composition, and I love the contrast between the pink and the blue sky.
April 10, 2012 at 9:36 pm
Thank you, Pablo. I found the contrast really striking, too.

I know why we are drawn to this photograph. It is a profound statement of the condition of all living things. There are contrasts and opposites here. There is the powerful and the vulnerable. A great strength and an impossible fragility. They come together in a majestic and momentary celebration of the cosmic elements joined in a single song of praise. We see it and we understand the beauty and the transience of life. We are allowed a glimpse, and then it is gone. You have captured this universal truth in your photograph.

Such wonderful, poetic words, George, thank you. Thank you for the attention you have given this; I can’t tell you how grateful I am. Yes, what attracts me to these trees is exactly what you’ve identified: the incredible force of their dark, rough trunks and branches juxtaposed with the fragility of their delicate, silky pink blossoms. You have expressed so beautifully a symbolism that can be drawn from such a marvelous fusion of opposites.
April 11, 2012 at 1:31 am
Not only a great angle, but the clarity and composition is magnificent!
April 10, 2012 at 10:56 pm
I really appreciate your feedback, Jennifer. Thank you.

The trunks remind me of palm trees, but the blossoms sure don’t. An effective combination.
April 11, 2012 at 2:44 am
Fantastic perspective. very beautiful 🙂
April 11, 2012 at 10:40 am
Clever shot….love the trunks leading us up to the splash of colour
April 16, 2012 at 9:10 am
this is very beautiful
April 19, 2012 at 8:52 am
Great Photo Melanie! I really like the perspective. The robust trunks leads the eye up to an explosion of delicate blossoms, and the small patches of blue sky which come through add a bit of contrast to the warmth of the flowers.

Rick, it’s great to hear from you. I so enjoyed your slime mold post, and wondered where you’ve been! Thank you for your thoughtful comment about my Pink Canopy! Your description of the image is beautiful!

Work has gotten busy lately, so there is not as much time left to post or read other posts. Unanswered e-mails are piling up and there are still several of your posts that I have not checked out yet. I look forward to a little free time to do that. Also we have had a spell of good weather, so I tend to spend more free time outside, and less at the computer.
April 25, 2012 at 4:02 pm
I know exactly what you mean. I feel like I’m drowning in email sometimes. Some days I just have to let it go and get outside. Don’t worry about keeping up with my posts (although, of course, I’m always happy to see you here). I want to see what you’re going to explore and discover!
