21.6.09 - Shades of Pink

Well today was the longest day of the year, so the days are getting shorter again, but the wildflowers are only getting started. I spotted this patch of Common Mallow (I think that's what they are anyway) on a run, but when I went back with the camera it was getting a bit dark. Luckily this just seemed to make the colours richer.

Usually I use collages when I can't make my mind up between several shots, but this one is because I couldn't get all of this clump in focus at the same time in the low light.

I've got out of my night photography rut, but I seem to be back in a flower one :)
