[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Finally!! A beautiful day!! So my middle grandson and I hopped in the car, drove for an hour and visited the Iris Gardens at Swan Lake. We wandered around for two hours, enjoyed the sunshine, I took pictures and he complained about his feet hurting. Sheesh. We had JUST about missed the irises. There were still lots of them, but their peak had passed. I didn't care. It was so good to see blue skies and sunshine. I hope you enjoy this like I enjoyed my day. :)))

I love it!! The colors and composition are great. Very nice detail. TFS

Hi Shelly,
Nice scene and composition.
I do find it tho..too blue and red (magenta) but more toward the blue's. The green of the tree, appears too greyich...))) A tad to bright too. But still a nice picture.

what a stunning view.great capture and wpnderful POV .In total a good composition

Nice view Shelly - I like the sharpness through the scene from the small aperture that you've used.. Simple composition with the path leading through the scene.

Nice summer shot...

We're looking forward to cloudy days in this part of the world, alas will be November at the earliest before that happens!!

Hi Shelly

Nice simple composition with the path leading into the shot.
The colours are natural looking.
From the shadows it looks like the sun was very bright.

Regards Derek

Hi Shelly, I really like this composition with the path leading us through the flower beds towards the water.It was a pity that the irises were past their best, but they still offer a good range of colour.
The cloudless sky complements the view.
Tfs, regards Jean.
