I am overdoing the flowers, but they have been so gorgeous!
The first photo, Flower Power, is from the Shea Garden on the Neumann campus. I have shot these lovely compound flowers before, but never tucked in so tightly with the macro lens, to see each little tiny blossom. By the way, I crop the photo carefully for each size, since a 1024x768 screen has a different "aspect ratio" than a 1280x1024 or a 1680x1050 screen. So while it is fine to click the 1024 link for the first look, if you want to use a photo as a screen background, please use the right size. In Windows, right-click the desktop background to learn about your screen resolution.
Sprechen Sie Rhodo?: 1024
A few days later, under dark skies, the rhododendrons were wet and drippy. I decided to use the focus stacking trick to pull out the sometimes jewel like quality of the rain drops.
Here is Rain Jeweled Rhodo: 1024; 1280; 1680.
