Red Flowering Currant

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 2 July 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Ribes sanguineum is a plant I met in the woods of Washington State decades ago and liked from the first. It's quite hardy and will grow in harsh conditions.

My Spotlighted Images

I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

It's handsome, fit for decoration. We have a currant flower in a very small and colorless flower.

These images have been tremendous, Steve...but then, ALL your images are tremendous...
Can you tell me, what is the software that you use that provides the misty/foggy look on some of the previous ones ?

Gorgeous color captured in these beautiful flowers!! Your DoF works well here showcasing an abundance, but not detracting from the flowers in the foreground.
