Field of flowers

Floods, hailstones, cold. Another typical Irish summer but thankfully it’s nice ad bright here in Blarney. Here’s a shot I took down at Allihies in West Cork back in April. It’d be perfect if the flowers were more in focus but I still love it.

Aperture ƒ/7.1
Camera Canon EOS 20D

    That’s smashing Donncha – very cherery and lifting. I think the focus is great – it really isolates some lovely flowers and leads your eye back to the beautiful blue sky. Me likey!

    I’ve been away for a while and had to look three pages backwards and I really love your newly posted pictures. Especially the colours are great, they look so powerful and amazing.

    Beautiful shot; love the deep blue sky and two-thirds composition. If only the focus was on the nearest flowers it would be perfect.
