This image was taken in the Brighton Azalea Garden in Brighton, Maryland, USA. It is open only during the azalea season, and as such is a very special trip into another world when we can visit here. Coincidentally, the azaleas bloom right around Mother’s Day … so every year what a joy it is to see families bringing their moms and grandmoms here for the day!!! The colors and light are like a shot of smiles to the soul. Hope you enjoy!! Taken with my Nikon D40x using the 18-135mm lens.
