Icy BC said...

That's incredible series of photos! Great macro!

jay said...

Ooooh, that's creative! And so beautiful! My favourite is the fourth from the bottom, such a lovely deep yellow against the purple petals!

debsgarden said...

Inspirational photos! You have a gift. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Meredith said...

So beautiful, as a series, or as stand-alone pieces. The third one down is perfection, in my opinion.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Just beautiful Liz!

Johnny Nutcase said...

beautiful! Love the depth of field and the colors!

Liz said...

Hi Tatyana,

*Blush* Thank you very much!

Liz said...

Hi Tricia,

Thank you! I went a little overboard with the Crocus macros… It’s very hard to resist them though!

Liz said...

Hi Maria,

Thank you kindly :)

Liz said...

Hi CV,

Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed looking at them

Liz said...

Hi Kala,

Thanks, one day I may use the tripod… I just never think about it when I’m in photo ‘zone’ :)

Liz said...

Hi Manang Kim,

Thank you very much!

Liz said...

Hi Cheryl,

Thank you! :) That’s what I aim for, I don’t see them as photos but as abstract paintings…

Liz said...

Hi Icy BC,

Thank you very much, I’m thrilled you enjoyed looking at them!

Liz said...

Hi Jay,

I think my favourite is possibly the first one, the very narrow depth of field just makes me feel soft and warm inside lol.

Thank you very much for looking at them :)

Liz said...

Hi Debs,

Thank you very much for the lovely compliment! I’m glad you enjoyed looking at them!

Liz said...

Hi Meredith,

Thank you very much, I perhaps went overboard with the Crocus images this year… I have many to delete off my laptop… Little wonder my Harddrive is currently screaming… Do I really need to keep a such scary amounts of photos??

Liz said...

Hi Lona,

Thank you! :) I’m glad you liked them!

Liz said...

Hi Johnny,

Thank you so much, narrow depths of field are by far my favourite, bokeh-tastic! :D

Jan (Thanks For Today) said...

Such amazing shots, Liz;-) Ever since I got my macro lens last year I've been so fascinated with what lies within each flower...a whole new world to explore!

Nutty Gnome said...

GwendolynGarden said...

Love the details- amazing photographs.

Anna said...

Great to see the view from a different angle - I'm going to have a closer peek into my crocuses tomorrow :)

Anna said...

Great to see things from a different viewpoint - I'm going to have a closer peek at my crocuses tomorrow:)

Amy said...

Those are great photos! They are so clear...very pretty.

Liz said...

Hi Jan,

Thank you very much! Macro is amazing isn’t it? So many things you would never have seen… Such abstract shapes let’s not forget, it all seems so magical!

Liz said...

Hi Liz,

A’reet?! Ow’s tha’ doin’? Ah, hope tha’s tea room’s goin’ a’reet.

Cheers bird foh‘ compliment, glad yer like ‘em.

Ok, so it really is difficult trying to type in ‘Sheffield’. Considering how quickly that would’ve been said it took far longer to type and I’m no slow-coach typist!

Liz said...

Hi Gwendolyn,

Thank you very much, I’m thrilled you enjoyed them so much :)

Liz said...

Hi Anna,

Thanks, I try to get different views of things, but it isn’t always easy… Plus there are the few odd plants which seem to be very difficult to get any unusual angles on… A few still evade me, it’s impossible to get interesting or unique shots of them, no matter how hard I try.

Liz these are a beautiful set of photos - gardening organically and with wildlife in mind - all important for a good garden in my view - great to see the real first signs of spring with the arrival of butterflies, swallows and hedgehogs here - have a good weekend Miranda x
