    Mike, these are simply awesome. I don't know how else to describe them. You have such a wonderful eye for composition. I can see the shots after you've posted them, but I would never get them on my own.

    Great job. You need to think about selling some of these. :wink:

    Hey Mike -

    More great stuff! I know you've got lots more, so keep'em coming.

    Two questions -

    How do you creat those great frames?

    What the heck is that weird round green thing that looks like it belongs in a horrow flick? I never saw it.

  5. Simply gorgeous !!! :)
     
  6. WOW!!! These are wonderful.
     
  7. Thanks so much for looking
     
  8. Thanks so much for the kind words, if you would ever see this place a blind man could walk away with some killer shots sort of the flower equivalent of the Rookery targets all over the place. I sure wish I could find a market to sell prints like this and pay for this nasty addictive habit I have. :shock:

  10. Fantastic shots, Mike. Your post reminds me that I really need to go there. I don't think I've been there since I was there in elementary school on a school trip, and that was a LONG time ago! Kudos on the beautiful shots!

    Great pictures, as usual, Mike. The last one almost looks like it's suspended in air at first glance.
