Here by Glimpses Known


I haven't been posting photos lately because we still haven't recovered the hard drive where all of them are stored. We have some fantastically lovely ones (landscapes and portraits) from my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law's visit, but they are on J's MacBook.

So, I give you experiments with my new lens. These were taken on Sunday, at Musical Beach. Unfortunately, I took so many flora pics, I had no more batteries left for the race or, sadly, for the grand finish.


 
Lazy sod that I am, I'm not going downstairs to look in my field guide to find the name of these pretties. Both photos are of the same flower species that grow on a tree on the beach. They are butter yellow when they open and turn a mellow pinky-orange when ready to fall off the tree.


Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.

Hibiscus, maybe? That second shot is a keeper.

Yeah, rh er, note to self: don't type while you have peroxide in your head and your head is tilted at a weird angle. It tends to mess up your perceptions...

Ahem, yeah, a type of hibiscus is my guess, too.

I feel like I could crawl into that yellow one and have a pleasant nap.
