Longwood Gardens 7

There were columbine flowers in every color of the spectrum at Longwood,but 15 mph winds caused problems in the higher plants,so this group low to the ground was a perfect choice to avoid blur and they were a pleasant composition to boot.

See the Potential

This is a good example of seeing beyond the basics and trying for something a little more visually appealing. The bottom image is what I saw driving by and the colorful tree made me stop and inquire if I could walk in the yard for a photo. I thought the blue bells contrasted perfectly with the pink tree,and I knew getting in low and close to the blue bells would make them a nice strong foreground element and you can clearly see what camera angles can do to improve a shot.I think the photo is nicely balanced and is a new favorite of mine from this spring, and special thanks to the family that left me onto the yard in the first place.
