For another pink flower day, today I am featuring one from the second of our quince bushes. This time this is the lovely pink one under our pine trees at the edge of our drive. These blossoms all seem to point down towards the ground which makes it tricky to get a good angle on them. As well, my camera lately seems to double as a portable wind machine. This means that no matter how still the day seems, as soon as I point my lens at my subject, a gusty wind begins to blow and the flower is tossed around, defying my manual focus attempts. I always feel a thrill when I see that I have got a photograph of delicate blossom that I am happy with, especially one that I photographed in a gale. It shouldn’t be this hard, but then where would the challenge be? Have a lovely day, friends and I hope you are able to meet all challenges today as best you can, even with a smile or a laugh.

  1. A beautiful selection for a PFD and exquisitely captured too. I am so glad to hear about your wind machine. Why? Because till now, I was taking it personally that the wind would pick up just as I was moving in to get a close-up. It can be completely calm until I select a subject and as I start to focus, the subject starts to bob and weave. I wait, impatiently, for the wind to abate, which it will do as long as I’m not focused on a plant or flower…but once I close in again, the same discouraging result. This dance goes on till one of us gives up – me. So I commend you, Ellie, for both your patience and perseverance. The result is lovely. Thank you.

    1. And here was I thinking that I was the only owner of a hand held wind machine disguised as a camera! (And I was taking it personally, too.) I guess that’s something else we have in common. Thank you so much for the compliment, Janet.

  2. Thanks very much Ellie. I always enjoy being able to zoom in and see the details on the flowers that you post. Certainly is a lovely color contrasting centers. With the sunshine today we can have a little bit more of a smile. Hope you have a great day hugs to you and Steve.

    1. Thanks Linda. That’s one reason I love taking them myself as I can’t see the detail with my bare eyes. This way I can too! Enjoy your day.
