Buds And Blossoms - Two Pink Azaleas
Photograph - Outdoor Color Photo
Square macro image of two bright pink azaleas blooming on the Texas Gulf Coast in the month of March. The two primary pink flowers are surrounded by buds, filling the entire frame with glorious pink, along with healthy green azalea leaves.
Second-place winner in the March 2012 contest, Filtration, featuring photographs for which filters were used. For this I used an ND filter and a polarizer with a Nikon D80 and 50mm Nikkor lens.
Purchased for a dollar a gallon, these pink azaleas have weathered everything from hail to floods, long freezes, sleet, and even snow. The more they get beat up, the stronger and prettier they get. The homeowner doesn't even bother to cover them during a hard freeze anymore. Let them ride it out, she says, and they do.
