Rhododendron . . .

This, not very exciting picture, is a crop of a photo I took across the road at the 50 mm focal length setting on my Nikon DX 16 – 50 mm zoom lens. It was a day of gale, downpours and brighter intervals – aka Storm Malik. I took this during dry period, but there was not much sun. I remain amazed that the sensor in a digital camera can collect a picture of a large bush many feet away, and yet we can look at a section of it and see leaves and individual buds. And judging by what the complete photo shows there should be a splendid show in the Spring. The sad thing with the Rhodies is, that the show does not last for many days – and then the plant begins constructing next years buds.
