Beautiful rhododendron Ron, it must be summer.

Britain must have been a very bleak looking country before we started to import all these colourful trees and flowers.

Just lovely.

Ron and all. I happily admit to knowing absolutely nothing about photography. Can you enlighten my ignorance. Would it not have been better to see the whole of the tree? Ron, when you took this shot was it the colours, bark/branches that you wanted to capture. I'm just interested to know why you would take such a beautiful shot but chop off the trees head. I welcome insight and correction.

A Matter of choice Jack.

Suppose so Ron. Great photo. At the National Theatre in London they always have a gallery of photographic works on show. Some of the pictures are amazing. The photographers who are selected to have their pictures shown describe all aspects of their picture. If you are ever in London you/&all should have a look you will greatly enjoy it- I do.
