While on another walk I found this pleasing combination of yellow flowers, willow tree, and grasses at the edge of a meadow.

Partially extended 12X zoom, hand-held, auto everything... rather windy, overcast day.

"If we could just lift up our hearts
Like flowers to the sun
And trust His Easter promise
And pray. ”Thy will be done”

We’d find the peace we’re seeking,
The kind no man can give-
The peace that comes from knowing
He died so we might live!"

I hear it has been a rather wet summer. Feel Blessed. It is hot out here...so much that we are unable to get out and about...very typical Larry image...Your image has the special trademark and I still cannot put a word to it! But beyond all else it is a happy one! Jane checks on your site daily...and it shows..you do well in many ways Larry!

Hello Larry,
The DOF is great in this image, sharp as a tac throughout the whole frame. Looks like you've been getting quite a bit of rain judging from the amount of greenery and it's size. Excellent lighting with very natural coloration.

Hello Larry,
You not only found, but captured a pleasing combination of wild sunflowers partially draped by the hanging willow branch. The colours composition and DOF add to the quality of this pleasing summery image.

Hi Larry,

Your flowers are such a welcome sight to those of us in the desert. It has been an exceptionally hot July and this shot is like a breath of fresh air. These yellow flowers and beautiful greens are just what the doctor ordered. Thank you.
