It was another beautiful day here in New England. Tomorrow we are expecting more rain. I photographed the lilac bush out in the backyard today as it's in full bloom. Such a pretty color!
The Specs:
Nikon D90, 18-200 mm lens, ISO 500, 1/320, f5.6, subtle lilac vignette added in post as well as the frame.

  1. I can just smell the lilacs through your photo. It reminds me of the lilacs planted in my yard alongside the forest and bubbling brook near the home where I grew up.

    It brings back images of my wonderful parents and blessed childhood, all of which are now just beautiful memories.

    A gorgeous flower with such an enchanting smell. One that makes you close your eyes and breathe in deeply! Ahhhhhhhhh. Love lilacs. :)

  2. It's amazing how smells can jog your memory and just take you back to another time. I'm so glad my photo took you back to those happy childhood days! Thank you!
