Waiting For The Tulips To Bloom...

Uploaded: January 17, 2007


Poor little flower girl, winter has been hard on her! Shot f5.6 @ 1/125th, ISO 400,
than ran like heck for the house! (Temperature was 9 degrees)

I like the subtle coloring going on here. The peeling fence is a great foil for the statue. A good over all, evocative feel. #589619

I second John, Brian! Splendid composition and capture...still no winter over here. :) #3831599

Poor thing...I always shelter our outdoor "what-nots" (don't have the heart to leave them outdoors in the cold...lol!). I like the composition, Brian! #3832743

Thanks Sherry! I appreciate your commenting -especially with your super busy schedule!
We usually bring these in for the winter, but alas, somehow we didn't get it done before the snow!! #3832825

I like your remark that you shot this and ran into the house. It must be very cold...at least it looks like it is freezing. I like the way she is covered with snow with your most apt title, Brian!!!
Living in Florida I can only look at these snow and ice images and freeze vicariously! #3842755

Brian Lobdell January 21, 2007

Thanks, Melissa! Lucky you! Its finally warming up here to the 32 degree freezing mark ater several weeks! #3847697
