I usually work with full-screen photo files so I can see and work with the detail but I’ve had to be tough with the lupin photos and select shots that appeal from the thumbnails to then work on. Of course I still selected far too many thumbnail photos and the next problem was trying to whittle them down to a select few to process & post on this special blog post.
In the end I know there are far too many photos for this blog, I didn't want to squash such beautiful photos into my digital photo frames so you have them all, one after the other, in their single frame glory. I'm sure there are at least 170,000 flower stems pictured too, one for every page view over the last 3 years. I know some of you are going to have extra large bunches of virtual flowers!
You’re either going to enjoy them all or you’ll switch off half way down the page and depart, but either way don’t forget to click on the photos to enlarge and if you don’t make it through to the end, do make sure you check out the very last photo, it’s guaranteed to make you smile.
Enjoy the beautiful lupins (Russell Lupines) of the MacKenzie Country. Sun, cloud, storm and sunset; they're all here, along with that blasted wind.
A wedding party joined us (two other photogs and I) for sunset in the lupins. After the obligatory shots of the happy couple kissing and embracing in the lupins, even laying down in the lupins, the wedding photographer had the party jumping in the lupins. At least a dozen times. Towards the end the older members in the group were struggling to get off the ground. I wondered why he did so many shots, that was until I saw my own shots. The brides dress was often caught above her knickers! And no I'm not going to post one here! :)
