Blumen (Flowers) - Roses, Tulips and Wild Ones...

How many photographers ever manage to avoid the temptation of capturing the colors and textures that flowers present? I for one most certainly fell victim. Here come flowers for all the beautiful people I know.

I was lucky to rent a flat in a quaint little town in a house that had a beautiful garden...
...Maintained by justifiably proud landlord.

He had a fabulous collection of plants and trees fetched from countries around Europe, and had some beautiful flowers too...
At the break of spring, it was time for tulips to bloom...
A few weeks later, roses bloomed aplenty...
...What more could I ask for?

I learnt that some flowers stand out...
And some stand alone... ...In the green slopes around Schloss Neuschwanstein... In stark contrast to the monotonous greenery that surrounded it - yet so much at home.

I'll let go with one last photo of a little flower the size of a 1 cent coin growing on the slopes of Kehlstein, near Königsee...
...Yes, the flower is only as wide as a 1 cent coin. This is a real close close-up!

All the photographs you saw are captured using my Canon S50, and are all taken in manual focus, on close range, with a high shutter speed, a low f-number (wide-aperture) and no flash.
