Mauve crocus in Today's flowers

A lovely shot, your crocus is weeping for the joy of being above the ground.

Great photo - the green leaves surrounding the blossom are so fresh and perky, too.

Such a rich color, your flower photo is superb.

Et flott komponert vårtegn. :)
Farger, lys, skarphet og dybdeskarphet er meget bra.

Maria said...

Thank you, Runee :)

Jeg konverterte bare et bilde til s/h og la på litt USM. Tok det 2 min så var det vel max. :)

Love the deep color of this bud. Is sure to be beautiful when in full bloom as it is beautiful now. Great capture. Love the water drops clinging to this flower.

Så godt å se crocusen komme! Har ikke sett den selv ennå, så jeg har noe til gode! Nydelig bilde!

Og du har så rett; jeg har ikke drevet frem de tulipanene selv! De har jeg kjøpt på Rema! :) Men fine var de!

You captured it perfectly, the color is beautiful, i think sometimes they are more beautiful when they are not fully opened

PERBS said...

The color is beautiful! Love those rain drops on it also.

I got more photos of flowers this weekend and even a daffodil or two or three. lol Haven't put them up yet.

You must live quite southern part of Norway? It's so beautiful promise of what is coming!

Carletta said...

A stunning image!
You've caught it still tightly wrapped waiting for the right moment to open. The raindrops really highlight the shot.

My Flower post is at Carletta’s Captures.
