Crystal Hermitage Abstracts

In my third and final tulip post I found my macro lens in heaven capturing the tulips at Crystal Hermitage in the mountains outside of Nevada City, California.  I took the liberty of taking some unusual angles of the bright and happy tulips which I hope you enjoy. I have taken a lot of flower photos in my day and I just never get tired of it.  I keep hoping for a better one or another one or a different and new one that takes my breath away.  Thank you readers/followers for giving me a medium to share their fleeting beauty. It memorializes them forever long past their current form.

Happy travels everyone.

    You “do” flowers very well. No wonder Colin likes them. 🙂
    Lemme see whether I can find an English version… (Please hold the line) (Un moment s’il vous plaît)…

    (I disagree with a few translation points but that’s all right. “Mignonne” would be better translated by Lassie) 😉
