Hallo Amelia, wonderful picture with very very relaxing colours!

Amelia Royan on April 13, 2009

Thank you Wolgang - at least this photo is not so controversial as the other Erythronium, and I'm so pleased you like it :)))

Greetings, Amelia

Wow. Another stunner and another Y*.



Amelia Royan on April 14, 2009

Dear Jen - you are far too generous - but thank you all the same for the Y*. Often the "backsides" of flowers are also very beautiful, and I'm so pleased you like this one :)

Greetings, Amelia

O what a beauty and lovely colors...just amazing, it`s seems so innocent...greetings from Macedonia

It looks rather shy nodding its head like this Ahmet - this flower loves a damp shady position and grows well in my garden in the UK. I'm so pleased that you like the photo.

Greetings, Amelia

Dear Amalia, your flowers (moreover, I think they are yours, isnt'it?) are so beautiful! I like also very much Tonia's and KashaKasha flowers. Olga

Amelia Royan on April 14, 2009

Dear Olga yes they are in my UK garden - but they are nature's as well, more than mine I often feel :))

Greetings, Amelia

Lovely inviting light, interesting shapes and great sharpness = great macro! Kasia

Well, Wow! Thank you, Amelia! I'm so honored! This is a beautiful flower and a stunningly beautiful photo! Well done! So this is the cousin to the American Erythronium! Very beautiful!

I was out just this morning between rain clouds and saw some of the trout lily in bloom in my woods. They close up during rain. I might post a photo that I took this morning. Oh, I just realized that I am still signed in as jean~ge, my black and white gallery and if I upload that photo, it will be in the first gallery. Maybe I will pause my comments now and go do that upload... for you!


Amelia Royan on April 14, 2009

Hello Kat, they are very photogenic these trout lilies, and large enough to make the macro easy :))

Thank so much for your encouraging words - I really appreciate your views :))

Greetings, Amelia

Hello Jean, you do realise that I am totally confused now [not difficult I know] - am I to understand you have 3 galleries working? I'll never get my head round all that - It's bad enough with the first 2. Never mind - I'll sort it all out - eventually :)))))

I'm so pleased you liked this one, it really was to show you that the erythroniums can grow in the UK - but not in the wild - or at least I've never seen one. Maybe someone on Pano will prove me wrong :)

Greetings, Amelia

Hi Amelia, if you get confused, you can look at my profile where I have listed the three addresses for the three different galleries. I have noticed that not many people use the profile area. The original gallery sort of turned into a type of diary, a photo a day or every few days. The second gallery is for a lot of photos at once, trying for a look around or showing a little area around here. Recently I drove a little distance on a popular road here called The Blue Ridge Parkway. There are many overlooks and I stopped at each one and took a lot of photos at each one hoping for a look around, or rather several. It is a road with many lovely mountain views. The speed limit is very slow and it was a relaxing drive. The third gallery is for some artsy stuff, I started out with some black and white and today I added 4 photos in Sepia and don't know where it will go next. :-)

To make it simple, here is a flower for you!.

Your Erythronium is just gorgeous! I really do love it. It is the sort of image that will stick in my brain for a long while and I can think on it and enjoy it as I am busy during the days. You know how I love flowers!

Thank you again!

I loved your trout lily Jean, and your present is now in my gallery of favourites :)))

Greetings, Amelia

Greetings, Amelia

quk (-̮̮̃-̃), I am so sorry, but I can't translate what you mean. I hope you like this little "pagoda" :))

Greetings, Amelia

~jean~ on April 26, 2009

Amelia, I'm back again to catch this flower again in another gallery for my favorites. You will probably be able to see a lot of your photos in my faves if you wait a few minutes! You have so many lovely ones and I must get them for my collection!
