SPRING TULIP

I haven’t a clue as to when and where this lovely Tulip picture was taken but as we are in the Spring season of the year I thought it might be a suitable posting at this time.

nice tulip and looks all the more pleasing with the sunlight filtering through it
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
tulips, our native export product
Brian Walbey: I guess this is the main season at the moment Chantal.
Wonderful Brian. Once again I am amazed about the quality of your slides scan!
Brian Walbey: Yes I am pleased with the scanner Richard, I have dozens more to do when time allows.
I can't believe how your slides have stayed so well and mine have lost their colour. Very nice.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. A few slides have lost their colour a bit, mind you I have upwards of 5,000 taken over many years. I keep them in polythene sheets that each hold 20 in small pockets which can then be filed in A4 lever arch binders, so there is little chance of much light getting in.
I saw tulips out yesterday Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes we saw our first one in the garden yesterday just outside our French Doors at the back.
a memory of a past spring
Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill, when I worked in London, and I left there in 1977.

Very suitable Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, and today (Sunday) as well.
Ahh tulips...also in autumn (dutch technology)
Brian Walbey: I didn't know about the Autumn ones Juan.
Your scans do look good Brian, which one are you using?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les. My scanner is the Plustek 7600i and so far I am very pleased with it. I read it up on several forums and it generally seems to be well thought of. Mind you the slides are in general quite well exposed etc., I used to do all my slides with a Weston Master V/Invercone hand held meter, (do you remember those, I still have mine), even if the camera was TTL metering, and it generally paid off.

Not seen any tulips this year yet; still daffodils despite the summer temperatures now. I like the colour of the flower set against the red flowers in the background.
Brian Walbey: We have one or two Tulips in the back garden Alan but most are still waiting to appear.
Looks great Brian and fitting for the season! I've followed the theme, for tomorrow smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, I look forward to your Sunday picture then.
Nice bokeh behind the bloom, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, easier to do that on 35mm.cameras than it is now.
nicely backlit.
DOF works too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, it was easier to do the DOF with the old 35mm.cameras.
A beautiful shot of this lovely flower!!!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
