Primrose!

Today was a wonderful day. Time to go out with the camera. I ended my photography day with a visit to Groenrijk Raalte. It was a sea of ​​colors. A large part of it consisted of Primulas. Cheerful spring bringers. In the past I always put a whole set in a large bowl on the coffee table. But I am allergic to these flowers. It is said that that problem has been solved, but I am not very confident about it. However beautiful I think they are, I don’t want to get an asthma attack from them.

I’m sharing photos of Primulas. So many cheerful bright colors. Wunderful 🙂

Guru’s Picks

In previous blogs I have already written that I participate in challenges on Gurushots.com. I have now moved up to Master. One more step to go and then I am Guru. To become a guru you need Guru’s Picks. These are photos that have been chosen as the best by other Gurus. You need it for the Guru level. I have 7 and I enjoyed sharing them here on a post. It is a mix of styles and subjects. Lots of fun 🙂

Macro flowers

For Gurushots I once again went into my photography past. I share a number of macros of flowers here. Partly new edits. The first photo is an adaptation of a photo that I did not share on the internet before. I do not know what it’s called. I have seen it in different tropical gardens. Among others in Burgers bush. There is also this picture taken in October 2016. If you know how this tree / shrub / plant is called, I like to hear it. They always hang high, at eye level. Unfortunately, I have never paid attention to what the rest of the plant looks like. Not wise 😛

Minimalism

Since a while I am active on GuruShots.com. There are always different challenges where you are in competition with other photographers. There are all kinds of topics. At the moment, among other things, I participate in the subject of Minimalism. I share here the photos I have sent.

About GuruShots.com, I say one thing: Think before you start. It is expensive. I am so stubborn now that I want to become a Guru. But I advise nobody to start with it. It does not really bring you much, maybeinspiration. Nothing more.
