SOOC Sunday



Jan is the host of SOOC Sunday. The idea is to post a photo that hasn't been edited in any way except, if need be, cropped.

Photobucket

I took this shot using the manual setting to darken the bloom which appeared too bright in the strong afternoon sun.

The rhododendron flower was not quite in full bloom, maybe I should have waited...

Nice flower Mary. We have started getting quite a lot of them here so I hope we get a bit of sun so that I can take picture.

The photo is great; I'm awed by the garden, though. :D

The bloom really pops against the black background, Mary.
