The clarity and dof on this image are wonderful and the bee is a nice added touch, fantastic work…gina
Thanks very much, Gina. Greatly appreciated.
Beautiful shot, I love the Cosmos, xx
Thanks very much, Ann. I think the cosmos is my favourite flower.
Lovely clear shot of this beautiful flower Mike..it has so many beautiful colours..one of my favourites too !!!
Many thanks, Wee Katy. Greatly appreciate your very kind words and the awfy nice compliment of adding this to your favourites! Yer a wee pal!
Thanks so very much, Quinn. An oldie, but still one of my favourites!
One of my all-time favorite flowers, writ large & luscious, Mike. Wise of you to put the link to it in one of your comments on Tracy’s BLUER then Blue!
Many, many thanks, Sheila, and I greatly appreciate the “fave”, too! This is one of my favourite flowers also, and I’m glad the old Canon and Ektachrome was able to do it justice. One of my first sales, many years ago. A Buddhist gentleman at work bought a 16 by 20 print of it for one of their holy celebrations.
How pretty!!! Wow you have been going to Le Lupin for a long while eh? :O]
Thanks so very much, Tracy. Yup. I’ve only missed three summers since ’92. My little “getaway from it all” spot!
Fabulous image! I love cosmos,they are so bright and cheerful flowers.You have the bonus of a bee too : ) Love the dainty leaves. I have never seen this colour in cosmos over here.
Many, many thanks, Pat! One of my favourite flowers. We have them from this shade of pink all the way to white and they’re lovely to see. This shot, by the way, was taken way back in 1993, using an old Canon AV1 and Ektrachrome slide film. Pretty hard to beat!
I will always think of you Mikey when I look at a Cosmo…I know they were your fave!! :o] I have 10 packest of seeds ready for my Mike Oxley garden this spring!! I’ll smile whenever I sit by it and think of you. xx
