Its an unusual colour for flowers.
EJWilkins: It is unusual, but these come in various shades of blue and purple. The 'native' ones are mostly white, or with a slight blush

smile I was there too but you saw more than I did....
Wonderful picture, great DOF, love the colour.
EJWilkins: They were growing near the tree in the grass not far from the church porch. I missed lots of things other people noticed wink

A variant of Wood Anemonies Ellie: very nicely taken
EJWilkins: That's right Chris - more petals and a greater colour range than the native ones.
I like the angle and colour.
EJWilkins: An almost eye-level shot wink
Lovely shot of these very pretty flowers
EJWilkins: Amongst my favourite spring flowers Bill

Awww. Was that when we were all there together, Ellie? I was too busy with everything else to see them, if so. Lucky, observant you.
EJWilkins: That's right Ginnie, these were growing near a tree almost opposite the church porch. I'm sure you saw lots of things I didn't notice.

Heavenly photo
EJWilkins: Thank you
They look to be the reverse of rainfall slating down.
EJWilkins: What a lovely description Chad.

I missed them too - but I know exactly where they were taken ;o) Very pretty.
EJWilkins: You're much too near the clouds to have been able to see them wink
And very nice too. Lovely colour
EJWilkins: I thought they were a lovely colour too
You got a nice true blue. Something I can't seem to manage.
EJWilkins: Some sensors don't do some shades of blue very well. I've noticed with my camera that the 'true' colour is also affected by the time of day / quality and angle of sunlight. I've managed to rescue some pictures using either 'levels' or 'curves'.

Lovely capture Ellie
EJWilkins: Thank you smile
wonderful flowers
EJWilkins: Amongst my favourite Spring flowers Derek smile
And we missed tham and you didn't Ellie, we are the losers not you, they are delightful.
EJWilkins: They were in the grass near a tree opposite the porch wink
So very pretty, lovely composition Ellie smile
EJWilkins: I'm pleased with the way the picture turned out
Love the sense of order and uniformity. Gorgeous blue. Really lovely image, Ellie. (:o)
EJWilkins: All pointing in the same direction - to catch sunlight and presumably also to attract bees.
Gorgeous vibrant colours
EJWilkins: These flowers are always beautiful, especially when there are a lot of them together

This is lovely. I like the angle in this and the depth of field.
EJWilkins: Thanks Alan - taken almost at ground level, the flowers did the rest all on their own
What a beautiful blue, such a pretty flower.
EJWilkins: They are indeed beautiful Sheila, they looked so lovely on what was a lovely sunny day - with good company
A fine array of blooms Ellie, well spotted.
EJWilkins: They were so pretty I couldn't leave them unphotographed

They grow in a gravely manner. And are beautiful for it.
EJWilkins: Indeed they did Louis smile

I LOVE the DOF on this one. Would make a great wall hanging!
EJWilkins: I've never really thought of ever doing anything like that, but I suppose in the right place it'd look good on a wall. Thanks Bonnie.
I look a little digital noise and miss a little more sharpness, is this a cut of a mayor original?
EJWilkins: Yes, it's a crop of a picture taken quite close with a macro lens, at f8 and close to the flowers in the foreground. Even with f8 it's fairly shallow focus, so those flowers that are out of range are soft.
