new growth

Allways on the lookout for light hitting fresh new growth on gum trees & wattles using a telephoto to blur out the background, mostly I think these were with pentax A70-210 f4 & sigma 70-300 f4-5.6 DL.










thanks for looking..

Hey Cee Cee! Looks like just you and me appreciate the Gum trees! Great photos!

Hope you don't mind if a post of shot! Not attempting to compete, your photos are much better, just offering as proof. I've got a "Sour" Gum in our yard. Never hear much about them! Tis a nice tree! Again your photos are great!

It is so nice seeing new growth Cee Cee! The lighting and colours are so beautiful, and number 3 is my favourite also. The composition works so well. I too always find it difficult to choose which ones to post. I always look forward to your shots! Thanks for sharing

Nice to see the new growth on spring. All ours are dying off as winter comes back to the Northern Hemisphere.
