Pinkly Impatiens

These beautiful pink impatiens flowers were taken in the summer, where my world was in colors. At the moment, my area shows nothing but gray sky and white snow.

If you could tolerate the freezing temperature, of course you would have plenty of wintery beautiful things to take pictures, such as icicles, frozen lakes, snowy hills, etc..I'm on the other hand, hibernating for now.

Looking through my archives, I found this fantastic pink color of impatiens flowers. Once, a friend told me that my computer must smell like flowers, and I have to agree to his notion. I have too many pictures on my hard drive, which I should find a better solution to keep them soon.

My favorite thing to do when I am taking pictures is to use my macro function. I find that with close-up pictures I have more appreciation for all the details in the subject that I captured. Macro photos give a sense of marvel, awe struck and speechless at times.

There are some flowers that I came to love after I see them in macro, and these impatiens flowers were one of them. I finally noticed their heart shape petals for the first time after loading the pictures up. I guess if we take time to look, there is always something new to learn. Registered & Protected

  8. I love pink impatiens. My gardens are full of them in the warm weather. It is amazing how hardy they are. Great pictures. Thank you for sharing and visiting me.

  9. Lovely! I love the pink veins in the leaves . . . not sure I would have noticed that without your wonderful photography. Thanks!

  10. Impatiens are so pretty. Love the pink of those. It seems that in our tropical Florida paradise Old Man Winter did his best to kill our lovely plants. But hope springs eternal!

    Happy Pink Saturday...
