Hi Carletta
These are beautiful....
I took some pictures a few weeks ago of these and small lillies... I was very pleased with the results.... I changed a few to B & W, and was amazed at the detale it bought out..

These are wonderful pictures of a beautiful flower.

Very pretty! I also admire your wisteria picture. For some reason, I was unable to get a decent picture of wisteria this spring.

I love carnations! Unfortunately, mine didn't make it through the winter. I guess it was too cold for too long this time. Beautiful capture!

Jayne said...

This first one just took my breath away!!! And the fragrance, the sweet spicy cinnamon odor...I can imagine the smell, right here, right now.

Mine's "Amaryllis by Morning". Do stop by to view if you get a chance.

carnations are not my favourite flower but recently i saw a bouquet with stems cut very short in a square vase. looked like a ruffled petticoat and i may have changed my mind. great shots.

This is beautiful!!

Raven said...

So pretty. I love carnations! (I tend to say I love every flower I see, though.) I used to wear a perfume - an essential oil, actually - that was called carnation. Wish I could get hold of it again.

These are beautiful beyond words! I can't quit staring at them.
