These flowers are on a tree. To shoot them I’m standing on tip-toe with the camera in my outstretched arms. There’s a running debate about whether power cables detract from the beauty of a photo, personally I don’t have a problem with them, to me they add to the photo.
I see the blooms are starting to wither a little, so probably will be seed buds soon !
I’m just the photographer, not a botanist, so no idea what species they are …
“Glorious bloomeria” probably 🙂

looks like a rhododendron 🙂 Nice colour…
I didn’t notice the cables until you pointed them out. Was focused on the flower. It’s beautiful.
Thanks hun … and I was winding a certain power cable disliker up a little bit, for fun mostly !
The Tree Flowers picture is fabulous! The pink is such a perfect pink.
What power cables?? There is only pink.
Reblogged this on Ask Emersen….
Thanks for the reblog 🙂
The flowers made me happy😄
What’s lovelier than a pretty lady ? A happy pretty lady 🙂

Thanks, that’s very kind of you 🙂
Thank you 🙂
The flower image is so powerful I didn’t even notice the cable lines. And yes, now you mention it the lines do add something. I think the contrast between the frilly curly flower petals and the straight lines makes a good combination. Cheers.
Thanks hun, and yes I reckon they add an extra dimension 🙂
so nice DON
Thanks much appreciated 🙂
I think the cables add a contrast. Not sure what that means or if it comes out right all I know is that I like it. You do some great photography. I wish my health would let me get online more often so I could check your posts more often. They are really good. Thanks for the bright spots in my days.
You are very welcome, and it’s comments like yours that make all the difference against the occasional nasty ones I get … So I keep posting what I like, and hope for the bright spots for you 🙂
Thanks hun, much appreciated 🙂
You captured the delicacy of the flowers.
Thanks hun much appreciated 🙂
The power lines definitely add a geometrical element to the otherwise natural shot. A cool contrast!
Couldn’t have said it better myself, thanks !
Awesome shot! I agree, the power lines add a dynamic quality that’s not bad at all
Thanks, very much appreciated 🙂
Awesome colors Don! I love it.
Lots of love ❤
Hey pats, thanks very much appreciated … really love your new avatar, nice 🐱
😀 nice picture
Malto gratzie !
Really beautiful Don. For flowers this color is perfect. Great shot.
Thanks honey … 🐱
Wow, to tell the truth I don’t even notice the power cables. In fact, I find myself drawn to the contrasting colors of the foreground flowers and the colors of the flowers in shadow behind them.
For sure I noticed that too … the power cables bring some kind of symmetry into the photo, an added dimension 🙂
Thankyou for that veiled reference to myself in your post 😉 It is a very pretty flower to be sure.
Only way I can get you to comment these days ! Hope all is well my friend, you are missed, but I know you’re there if I give you a gentle prod 🙂 … Don’t you think the blurred power cables add something, an urban feel ?
I’m not even entering debate on power cables even though you keep prodding. 😛 I am around – just behind (as usual). I just happened to check that post of yours this morning before the millions still in my inbox lol
Was gonna suggest in terms of getting up to date, visiting your favourite blogs and scanning the feed for posts that stand out. Comment on those and get yourself up to date. Then start afresh. Whilst I love that you comment on every post Suz, I don’t want you to kill yourself doing it … I’m sure your other friends would feel the same way hun 🙂
My emails only come from particular blogs now but they still add up.
Not trying to kill myself but severely restricting my computer use so that I spend time doing other things.
OK, you know best way for you … and you know what I mean, make sure you get the balance you need in your life … I’ve had to implement similar measures at my end, otherwise I’d just be blogging 24/7 and that isn’t healthy !
Nope. It certainly isn’t. !!!
My morning is running out and I have to finish my A-Z post for today before getting ready for work.
Hugs my friend. Take care.
You too hun, have a good day 🙂
Wasn’t bad for a Friday.
Gotta be better than a monday ..
I think anything is better than a Monday. lol
… almost anything … I can think of and have experienced worse things … but yes who likes to start back to work after a weekend’s rest !
You do know it’s Monday don’t you??? lol
Still Sunday night here dearest, Aussie ladies are a bit forward, like the time zone they live in LOL … bed for me soon, it’s gone 4am, and I do need my beauty sleep 🙂
So do I but I’ve got to go to work lol
don’t drink the stuff. Finished my cup of herbal though.
You’re so healthy suz …
Talk about a happy shot!
Thanks Laura 🐱
you’re welcome Don 🙂

Outstanding shot, Don.
Thanks dude, and thanks for the reblog 🙂
This flower is feeding the fairy in me. Yum!
Happy for that mrs fairy 😈
They look a little like rhododendrons.
This species is trying to be eradicated in the UK as it has become so invasive.
Weird really trying to get rid of something so beautiful.
Yet they are attacking the natural understory, and no one likes to see that!
Botanist I’m not so have to rely on others for my flower names ! … I’ve seen rhododendrons a-many in UK, and they are prolific

Good ole charisma
Thanks for the reblog 🙂
no worries Charisma
no worries Charisma
Really vibrant colour in this image, DC. Beautiful.
Thanks dude 😈
In this case, I agree that the power lines give great contrast–nature versus man!
For sure, it works well, got lucky on this one
I agree with Kimberly! Love the color punch.
Beautiful Flowers. Beautiful Picture.:)
🐻 thank you 🙂
Check out my Blog too?..:)
Have done … nice to meet you 😉
So beautiful and mom’s favorite color – PINK! XOXO – Bacon
Very welcome 🙂
The power lines in this instance add dimension and flow through the shot.
I think it depends on the shot on whether power lines should be removed or not. Sometimes they do deter from the main subject, but in this instance they do not.
😆 thanks, I just like winding Suz up mostly !
