Spring Flora

Spring Flora
August 19, 2008

A little bit of spring for the morning, these beautiful flowers in full bloom, taken at the University of Illinois Arboretum in Champaign-Urbana.  I love how the sharp flowers in the foreground fade to just a blur at the background, and the soft colors are punctuated by a single sliver of light.  A nice floral pattern to end the week with. Enjoy.
