Macro Monday, That's My World Tuesday - Hillside Flowers Up Close

 Click on photos to enlarge!
Our hillsides are covered with these yellow flowers.  
I showed the hillside views on yesterday's post.
The flowers are trying to creep beyond this chain link fence.

There are some purples mixed with the yellow.
This one is also poking through the same chain link fence.
I focused closely on the flower causing the chain to become part of the bokeh.
You can barely see the lines of the chain in this photo.

 This little flower found a nice frame.

These are beautiful macros of the hillside blooms. I like the way the purple ones look. Purple and yellow flowers are a great combo.

They are very, very pretty. I love the way flowers camouflage fences.

Gorgeous! I'm so glad the blooms can't be fenced out, or is that in.

Northern California is staying green longer as well. I'm anxious to see what Yosemite looks like. I will miss the beautiful redbud you saw but there should be dogwood in bloom.

These yellow wildflowers sure make my day more brighter! Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons!

I think that it is not easy to photograph yellwish or whitis flowers. Because the colors of yellow and white don't come out well. As for the third photo,I think that the color of the yellow flower in the frame (the third photo) would have come out well if you had used a filter. What do you think?

I love the middle one, lovely photos.

Your purple thistle is beautiful!

That's a wonderful thistle!!

I like the fence as frame - they can't be controlled! That purple thistle shot is very nice indeed.

Beautiful shots, I especially like the one of the thistle.
