Mellow Yellow . . .

Oh no . . . despite his claims to the contrary, that this is not a blog about flower photos, it looks like Owen has been out sniffing pollen again, and it's gone to his head . . .

Great shades of yellow, Owen!!!

Hope that you are getting plenty of R&R!

Lydia said...

What spectacular images! It's almost 2:00 a.m. and yours is my last stop in the blogosphere tonight. But I'm so refreshed and wide-awake from being bedazzled by these yellows I think I'll stay up a bit longer. :)

The focus and depth of field are such that they want to pop off the page!

Proof, if any were needed, than it terms of colour palette, nature is the best painter of all.

@eloh said...

The sniffing pollen has helped not hindered your photo ability don't you think? Great photos and awesome color.

The Sagittarian said...

Quite rightly! (sniff)

Nothing mellow about these gorgeous hues. I am simply bedazzled: Bedazzled I tell you!

(psst--Here's a Kleenex--you've got pollen all over your nose.)

All this flower gazing has given me an appetite. Where are those fantastic crêpes you were taunting me with?

Deborah said...

Oh, oh, oh! The second one is particularly exquisite!. Two favourite colours together - much like the wallpaper in my 1960s bedroom, although missing the pink.

I envy you your depth of field, Owen.

Genie said...

Coreopsis? Love the colors and the depth of field -- great detail!

Despite previous claims, you do have a talent for the flowers. These are gorgeous, intoxicating. My landscapes are bereft of summer flowers and I miss them more after visiting here!

Keep sniffing the pollen...the results are superb.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Ohhhh Yeah!!!

Nevine said...

Hey, go out and sniff some more. As long as you're sniffing, I'm enjoying the lovely shots. What's a little pollen to the head, Owen? You know you like it, too.

I have missed visiting you and seeing your lovely photos. I feel like I was gone forever, though it was only 10 days. But now I'm back and my first glimpse at the "Magic Lantern Show" was truly magical!

wonderful, really wonderful and so bright colours, impossible to resist, isn't it? :-)
which reminds me that i still have to post my poppies (from bright yellow to bright red:-)

Cildemer said...

Ça te réussit très bien de sniffer le pollen;o)

Merci pour ces belles photos et aussi celles du Mont Saint Michel qui m'ont rappelé de très bons souvenirs!

Belle fin de semaine et à bientôt*******

K'line Bloom said...

C'est très sain le pollen, Owen !
Après, tu vois les fleurs toutes bleues alors qu'elle sont jaunes !
Oui, c'est comme cela que les abeilles les voient...;)
Bises

Owen said...

Many thanks to one and all... hope the pollen didn't have you sneezing too much also !

Merci mille fois à vous tous, en esperant que le pollen ne faisait pas trop éternuer quand même...

Bonnes vacances à tous si c'est le cas !!!

Karine A. said...

une fenêtre bien décorée et de jolies fleurs jaunes pour saluer ce bel été,
tu n'es donc pas en vacances, Owen?

Arnaud said...

Rhiannon said...
