Rhodo Gardens in Skylands

The annual parade of blooms is under way at Skylands (the New Jersey Botanical Gardens) Sunday morning was cloudy and a little rainy before the storms that came in later in the day.  I took the opportunity to photograph the newly blooming rhododendrons.  I caught them early in the cycle so if you would like to photograph them you have a couple of weeks.
I love sky lands!  all year long there is something to photograph.  I used this as a chance to practice working without a tripod and manual focus on my macro lens.  I am really happy with the results.

Keep Makin' Art!

You should be happy with them. The delicacy of the bottom two particularly grab me. Though the artistry and vivid color of the first three hit me in a different way.

I know what it is. The bottom two made me immediately think of a painting. There you go.

It sounds like a magical place.

Lovely. High tones are so difficult to render well.
