Susan's Azaleas...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 16 September 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

...were in full bloom while we were at our daughter's home in May.
In afternoon light, this was taken against her house.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Not the best time of day to shoot, but I do like the result. They are amazing, more like lilies or amaryllis than azalea.

@Curly: Believe it or not, this was taken at 6:16 pm, the summer sun is very direct up there in May, burning out some of the whites. I love this variety, but we don't see it down here in Florida.

Stunning light to showcase these beauties Judy! Nicely captured! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: It was 6:16 pm (as I told Curly), but still very bright, which blotted out some of the whites. Still, I liked it.

The house made a fine background for showing these pretty flowers. An impressive flower shot.

Bet you couldn't get your camera out of the bag quick enough when you spotted these beauties, lovely shot. ;>)

@Jeff: These bloomed for a good several weeks while we were there and with no heavy rain, they stayed so beautifully. I took quite a few shots of them. ;D

With all the rain we´re having at the Moment may seems like a Long time ago..

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Ohhh, well I hope I brought a moment of sunshine into your day, then! ;D

@Denny Jump Photo: It was pretty bright in NJ, even at 6:16 pm, and it blew out some of the whites, but all the other colors and the leaves are great. Great to communicate with you.
