When that pink hits your eye Like a bubble gum pie -  That's hibiscus!  When the blooms seems to shine 'cause the weather is fine - That's hibiscus.  DP239-2014  Posted August 27; processed  ditto. I lost internet service during a period of severe thunderstorms yesterday afternoon, before I had left any comments for the day, and only got it back this morning.  So apologies for not responding to all the lovely comments left yesterday for my own shot.  You have to be pretty old to recognize my lame parody of the tune from the 1950's, 'That's Amore', made popular by Dean Martin (originial lyrics here, for example:  http://www.metrolyrics.com/thats-amore-lyrics-dean-martin.html)  Lots of hibiscus are in bloom around town - almost like a second season of blooms, but none were any larger than these, which were the size of salad plates, fully 8-9 inches across.

Mother Nature's fantasia  Hoodoos with white cap stones, Inspiration Point, Bryce Canyon, Utah.  The white rock (cap stone) is harder than the underlying red sandstone, so it protects the underlying rock from erosion.  Another close-up of the hoodoos, and the remainder of the White Pocket images, can be seen here: http://goo.gl/yWR7T6  28/08/14 www.allenfotowild.com

8/28/14 - Prickly poppies  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the Mustang logo.  I have quite a few shots of Mustang logos and each is a bit different.  I think it was an inspired idea of Ford's to create this logo.
December 6, 2010    Hello everyone - I didn't expect to be posting tonight, or this week at all because I was scheduled to be in Northern California all week; however, due to an unforeseen event, the trip was cancelled and so I am home this week, and the NoCal trip will be rescheduled sometime next year.  I'm home  and happy!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's nice to be home after all my travels over the last several weeks.  Road warriers need to restore the batteries at home some, and that's what I'm doing!!!!  YAY!    This is a  custom car and I don't know what it started life as, but it was a real beauty.  The rainbow colored paint was amazing.  As you walked around the car it would change in color from black to dark midnight blue then to medium blue  and then almost a tourquoise color, then it would shift again to a light maroon and a red.  There were several other color changes in between too.  It's hard to describe all the color variations.  It was at a car show and as you can see it was sprinkling rain and I felt sorry for the owners who were trying to keep their cars wiped down and dry.  I liked the rain drops on the car and the reflection of the other car beside it.  The beauty of the colors are best viewed in X3    Have a great evening Smugmuggers.    Linda

Lots of hibiscus are in bloom around town - almost like a second season of blooms, but none were any larger than these, which were the size of salad plates, fully 8-9 inches across.
