In the forest on a sunny day with my boyfriend. :)

This is just too beautiful! The intricate focus on the pinecone really sets it out from the cascade of bokeh and colors in the background. I love the soft green carpet underneath the pinecone and how they seem to blend together. From a distance I almost thought it was a hedgehog!

This photo is most beautiful! The colors are very gorgeous. I love how you manage to capture blues, purples, oranges, yellows, greens, browns and pinks in one image. This photo is a perfect example of a nature photograph. Although I haven't seen many of these type, it doesn't have the biggest impact although it does leave your feeling calm and peaceful.

I love the angle at which you captured the pinecone. Almost as if you were a creature on the forest floor too. The composition couldn't be better!
What do you think?

Hi! Your lovely photo has been featured on my poetry blog here: [link]
This image has a sort of delicate beauty to it. I like the way the photo is focused exclusively on the pinecone, blurring the lovely hues of blue and orange in the background.

At first, I thought that pine cone was some sort of animal, lol. Very pretty!

Yes everyone seems to think that haha! It really looks like a hedgehog, but that's the purpose of the photo so I'm glad you thought it was an animal. :D
