I like the vignette in the first and the fact that you opened the lens up in the second for that painterly effect - Nice!

Thanks Chad. The vignette might be a little over done, even for my taste. I did quick edits on these late last night after I got home, so they may get re-visited.
Beautiful shots, Mike! What a lovely flower!
Thanks Dossy. They are beautiful aren't they. They will darken a tad in the next few days as they age.
Hi Mike. The second photo is wonderful.
Cheers.
Mike
Thank you Mike.

Nice photos! Is this a natural bog?
Thanks John. It's called Cedar Bog but is actually a fen. Beautiful place. Very fragile environment with lots of endangered and threatened species. http://www.cedarbognp.org/

Thanks Karen. Composition was limited because access is very limited. The boardwalk through the area is the only way around. The environment is so fragile that guests are required to stay on the boardwalk.

Thank you Cynthia. Not sure about this one. I have a couple from last year that I like much better. The colors were much richer last season for some reason. Could just be timing.

You're quite welcome John. I would highly recommend a Cedar Bog visit to anyone interested in fen flora and fauna. It is a remnant of the ice age glaciers that pushed into the area. Cedar Bog is home to 40% of Ohio’s rare species, in one location. Here's another link that might interest you. The Bog is a State Nature Preserve but is actually managed by the Ohio Historical Society. http://www.ohiohistory.org/museums-and-historic-sites/museum--historic-sites-by-name/cedar-bog


Ohio has many unique and very under-utilized preserves and natural areas. I love these places and rarely see other human visitors when I explore them. This is probably true for most states.

I just checked out the link in your signature. Looks like a very useful website!
