GGW Picture This Photo Contest: Flowering Trees


Update [7/27/2009]: Wow. Got a runner-up. “Beautifully lit and tightly cropped, Craig’s shot has it all. The strong curves and intense colors make this image a keeper. Excellent technique!" Thanks for the kind words, Rob.

My entry into Gardening Gone Wild's July photo contest: Salix sachalinensis 'Sekka' (Salix udensis 'Sekka')

The contest made me realize that I'm pretty weak on the flowering trees and shrubs in my garden. Or at least the spectacular ones.

Quality not quantity they say and this is a top notch shot. I really like the warm tones of the yellows and brown against the blue sky and the texture of the blooms can’t be beat. Nice work!

It’s not pink and frilly, but a very good picture! I like the texture and the fact that it is something different. Good Luck in the contest.

Congratulations, Craig. I am happy to see you were recognized – I love your photography.
