  1. Getting into these. I use my zoom lenses a lot for close up photos like this. They create some sweet bokeh, don’t they?

    The second one is my fav.

    • Yes, they do, but I still prefer my macro πŸ™‚

    Love the path shot. I love paths and I’m not sure why, perhaps the mystery as to where they lead? Love the beautiful bokeh in #2 and I always love flowers. πŸ™‚

  3. I’ve got to get myself back there. Like Scott, the second one is my favorite but, like Becky, that path shot is beautiful, too.

    Becky, I think the path is suggestive of mystery, as you say. It draws on our natural curiosity of the unknown. The same curiosity that causes us to explore or to romanticize a vampire.

    • I agree, you need to get yourself back there πŸ™‚ I want to see this place in the summer… well… mid to late spring, before it gets too hot!

      A vampire???

  4. Did someone say vampire? Hmmmm. More pretty brown flowers – more nice!

  7. It sure does look like a wonderful place, and very worthwhile too judging by all the great shots you captured…
