Minnesota 2015 Part 3

Post by Roanoker » Sat Sep 22, 2018 8:26 am

The sweet thing posed for a long time.
Image

It’s fascinating to see how these branches drape.
Image

One way to deal with a portrait-oriented image is to copy it, flip the copy and paste it next to the original image. What you see is what you get.
Image

What is there to say? Nice flowers.
Image

What might lie ahead?
Image

They seem so happy to be alive.
Image

Not sure what this fruit might be.
Image

But doesn’t it add to the beauty of these trees!
Image

The trees in this landscape arboretum were quite beautiful.
Image

So I captured a few more.
Image

Truly stunning.
Image

The flowers were acceptable, too.

Almost like Christmas.
Image

Rough-looking fruit or vegetable.
Image

Trying to emerge
Image

Already there.
Image

Fake kids.
Image

Real son.
Image

Fake kids again.
Image

Pool drain.
Image

Back to roses.
Image

And other flower things.
Image

There is a turkey trying to hide in the tree’s shadow.
Image

Cone flowers are always welcome.

Some sort of fruit on this tree.
Image

Reaching in all directions.
Image

These must be male cone flowers.
Image

Teensy flower.
Image

Pick a tree, any tree.
Image

Must have been a nice cloud up there.
Image

Variety is the spice of life.
Image

Portrait-oriented image pasted on top of itself with a few vertical strips deleted.
Image

Reaching for attention.
Image

Stems with purple hats.
Image

Sun lovers.
Image

Odd flower thing.

Not sure what this thing is, but it is a pretty color.
Image

We see this flower quite a bit here in Kansas City. However, the picture was taken in Minnesota.
Image

It all seemed so symmetrical.
Image

Fingers are necessary to demonstrate the tiny size.
Image

They like to face the sun and put on a show.
Image

This one’s all wrapped up in itself.
Image

A little blue one jumping out at you.
Image

Trying to grab your attention.
Image

Speaking of putting on a show...
Image

The blue, spiky flowers want to take over.
Image

Another show of sorts.
Image

Time for a bright, pink something-or-other.

Trying to look like the sun.
Image

Daisies abound.
Image

Pretty in pink.
Image

I did a lens blur on the background. Now this thing is jumping out at you.
Image

Sunny side up!
Image

It’s as if they are marching.
Image

A place to congregate.
Image

The reds stand up nicely to the greens.
Image

You knew they’d have a fountain in this place.
Image

I copied and pasted a few of these flowers to fill in some sparse spots. I don’t even know where they are now.
Image

This was a portrait-oriented image. It’s mostly on the right side. I used its bottom for the background. Made a few cuts.
Image

These leaves compete with flowers.

You have to take a break once in a while.
Image

There is always a place to sit.
Image

Almost a face.
Image

Competing whites.
Image

What are you wearing today?
Image

I did nothing to this picture except crop it. It seems to exude its own light.
Image

Attractive array of pink and green.
Image

Finding sunlight.
Image

Remains of a bird convention, no doubt.
Image

Sunlit leaves.
Image

Waiting to burst.
Image

Lavender blue, dilly dilly.

Seriously pink cone flowers here, and a few purple interlopers.
Image

I think a sneaky gardener did some pruning on this one.
Image

Attractive display.
Image

A little cohabitation can be fun.
Image

Don’t you wish you could hear what they were saying?
Image

I suppose you could connect the dots.
Image

Now if only there were troubled waters below...
Image

Almost like a Disneyland park.
Image

Snowballs for the picking.
Image

It won’t hurt anyone if you throw it.
Image

Rather formal.
Image

Play nice with your firry friends

A rather unusual view of falls.
Image

A second picture of the same view was so different, I had to include it. Kind of like twins.
Image

The bright, white sign was obnoxious, so I grayed it out.
Image

Cartoonish background, but it will have to do.
Image

Do you prefer strawberries or flowers?
Image

To bee or not to bee...
Image

The bright, maroon leaves look sticky.
Image

I never imagined finding flowers that looked like starfish.
Image

One of these flowers is a transplant I copied from the cropped-out part of the original image. Too sparse otherwise.
Image

Like crepe paper.
Image

Showing off in the sun.
Image

Such a pretty flower deserves another presentation.
