title - Krokus and Drop -
date2/6/2005 4:46:11 AM
detailsSpring is in the air over here (for as long as it takes!)
Just one year after my very first Krokus and drop, they appeared again these last days! On the same place, beautiful as ever!
I couldn 't resist to lay on my belly, nose against the camerabody, eye in the viewfinder... and tears in my eyes because of the cold...

Rally nice colours, great work, well done
5 Rudi Van Gestel   (2/6/2005 8:02:52 AM)
To Janet Kirchen for her fabulous 6: when you had given me a comment, you even could have given me a much lower vote! But I know: that is too much effort for you!
Have some nice time giving 6-es here and there!
Sorry, Janet: Photography is nothing for you! It 's really not your cup of tea! I suggest you 'd better follow a sewing-class or something from that order!
I would understand, when your photography would have improved! But as you didn 't post anything lately I suppose you didn 't! So please stay of the internet and forget anything about photography! Just leave us, the world outside photography is all yours! Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase!
6 Elisabeth   (2/6/2005 8:06:28 AM)

9 julie Williams   (2/6/2005 9:09:09 AM)

18 detlef   (2/6/2005 12:22:49 PM)
I am happy to see you spoke out about a low vote without explanation Rudi!
in many ways an abstract with shape and colour being the dominating factors
19 jakking (Jak King)   (2/6/2005 12:28:14 PM)
Simply superb.
20 Sharka (Beata Ostachowicz)   (2/6/2005 12:53:35 PM)

Nice color and form comp Rudi. Looking forward to spring too and to more of these nice flower pictures.
27 Pascal Paoli   (2/6/2005 2:57:57 PM)
This is very good for me, Rudi, almost abstract, with interesting colors. Good touch of spring. Congrats!
28 Keith Frost   (2/6/2005 3:47:13 PM)
Rudi, I enjoyed the post 12 months ago which had the same title, but this is quite wonderful and an inspiration to those, like me, whose photographic talents aren't in this league. When I see an image like this it makes me want to get out and start shooting pictures and to try and improve my technique more! So thanks indeed - keep them coming ! The comments above well capture the sentiments -Keith
29 KeithP   (2/6/2005 3:51:47 PM)
