“It’s an odd thing, happiness. Some people take happiness from gold. Or black pearls. And some of us, far more fortunate, take their happiness from periwinkles.”
– Patricia A. McKillip
While hiking into the forest this past weekend, I came across a patch of periwinkle, still green even after the winter snows, though showing some wear. As I looked closer, I noticed a few blossoms had already opened. That’s a bit earlier than previous years. Though only a few blossoms where open, you can see plenty of buds waiting to open in the next few days.

A WOW line! Thank you for making me realise i am happy for good!
You are welcome
just wondering why you use such a small aperture? Diffraction can be a problem after f16 on high mp cameras.
I want everything in focus without needing to stack. Diffraction has not caused me problems thus far.
