photoblog image Upton House 5/7

Upton House 5/7

There was a lot to see in the way of plants and flowers in the garden at Upton House and I took quite a lot of close-ups of some of them, these two being just two of them. I was lucky to capture them with small insects on them.

 

On Tuesday I/we debated whether my two image collage might have the images the wrong way round so just to settle the point if you click HERE you can see both versions together, it would be interetsing to hear your opinions.

These are fabulous images, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Lovely presentation of these beauties!

I think I prefer the way you presented it - as it feels clearly like two different sections - the other way, it looks like you've just split one image of the corner of the building - if that makes sense....
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. I know what you mean, although it's the way the building is built it doesn't look right.
What a wonderful and warming up presentation Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
I personally find your Tuesday's presentation more realistic Brian!
Brian Walbey: I agree Richard, the right way round one just doesn't look right does it.
I never tire of flower close-ups, Brian, especially when they're this color. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie.
there are two magnificent close-ups of the flowers Brian... the bee is nice but i love the two Monarch butterflies....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.

Those small tortoiseshell butterflies are attracted to the sedum plant.

I think both your other images are as good as each other
Brian Walbey: AS indeed was my camera Chris.
The pinks are lovely... especially with the bugs and butterflies.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.

What a wonderful photo of the malva! Upton House must be a paradise for the insects!
Brian Walbey: The weather was just right that afternoon to attract the insects out to feed.

Beautiful colours and as you say just a small sample of the variety on show.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Mike, we will go back again at some time.
These are delicious images, Brian, with perfect lighting.

I like the clever way of showing us the building. I still prefer the one you showed us on Tuesday even if it was incorrect.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. I agree, the wrong way round house picture still looks the better of the two.
A fine pair of pictures Brian

I prefer the alternative
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
this makes me long for spring and we will get it this weekend, with 16 degrees C a good start
Brian Walbey: Yes we have also been promised a fine, and fairly warm weekend, today is glorious outside my window at the moment.

Looks very popular with the insects and the butterflies; rightly so. The colour of the flower in the LH image is very impressive.
Brian Walbey: I was really pleased with that particular image Alan, thanks very much.

I prefer the alternative too Brian.
Brian Walbey: Somehow it just doesn't look right though.
Sweet memories of summer Brian. Lovely pics
Brian Walbey: Indeed Janet, we are apparently going to have a nice weekend, we are keeping our fingers crossed for a lovely mid April.

A pink rush, that is alive.

As far as the alternatives go - what I thought was up for improvement in the original shot - was where the roofs came together in the middle, top. A bit uneven. The matching is better in the alternative, but for the rest, I think it is 6 of one and half dozen of the other.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis. Next time I try one of these duo images I will have to plan exactly what I am taking so they do match up better.

These are just delightful. What fabulous colours.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. The light was beautiful that afternoon and the plants were making the best of it.
