Nothing but blue skies from now on by 


A festive speckled canna, looking proud and tall against a beautiful, soft-focus October sky – no manipulation, no crop. My title, inspired by the background, is a line from the song, “Blue Skies” (Irving Berlin, 1926 – you may know the version by Willie Nelson). (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 35mm macro, f/6.3, 1/1000 sec, ISO 100, early afternoon sun, handheld)

    I think that this canna is a bit of a show-off! She looks very self-confident and defiant against the ‘blue skies’!

  • I agree that she’s a show-off, and she knows she looks good against blue. :) Thank you, Bette!

    I’m humming Blue Skies…Beautiful capture…love the contrasts!!

  • Thank you kindly, Lynn! I loved the contrast when I saw it, and it was Willie Nelson’s version of the song that came to mind.

    Oooh, Celeste, this is just so glorious!!!! I absolutely love it!!! That gorgeous bright yellow (and orange/red) against the beautiful blue cloud-streaked sky is just stunning!!!! :)))

  • Thank you so very much for the grand comment, Laurie! Really, these are the primary colors we learned in kindergarten with crayons and such, so perhaps that’s part of the appeal.
