My camera and my photography has taken a back seat over the past few years while I worked very hard at staying current in the web design & development field and lay a lot of groundwork for a business. Finally on vacation and I was determined to relax away from the computer and take photos. So far this is my favorite.
My mother in-law has a beautiful Azalea bush at their home. An idea of how much “warmer” it is this year, two years ago when I took photos of this in bloom it was Mother’s Day. This year it is mid-to-end of April. I took this photo around 6pm with the sun setting behind the hill and backlighting the flowers. I shot it with the Canon 50mm 1.8/f lense which I love for it’s wonderful depth of field.
