Delonix regia by bobfoto

Delonix regia

Poinciana or even more commonly known as Christmas Trees. Why, because they flower now and remind us that Christmas is nearly here.

60 days to go.
I love that. Fav

Wow, the angle of the shot is perfect, stunning capture Jason :)
October 26th, 2011  
@sharingmylife - I held the flower up in my left hand.... sneaky....
October 26th, 2011  
@bobfoto - Aww thats so cute haha, gosh you are sneaky aye but the capture made it worthit :)
October 26th, 2011  
@sharingmylife - well sometimes you just have to bend the rules a little and make sure your thumb is not in shot.
October 26th, 2011  
@bobfoto - Haha, so very true, I'm sure it is hard taking a picture with one hand, I can't hold my camera in one hand for more than five seconds so i'm sure it was more difficult than it seems :)
October 26th, 2011  
@sharingmylife - this shot only took 1/2500th of a second... plenty of time in that 5 second window?
October 26th, 2011  
ha, snap back!!
Great minds and all that!

@dmcrisp @kammy @emmar84 @httpgeffed @lbmcshutter @juanita @judithdeacon @voodoochild @houdiniem @luvthyclassics @exposure4u @sangwann @buttercup @clarissajohal - thank you everyone, sorry for the bulk reply, but you all had sweet things to say and I just wanted to say thanks. A 365er yesterday said that there was a fairly distinct line between between my photos - the difference between light and dark in terms of mood. This would be one of my light shots then. Despite burning out my retina taking this shot, I kinda loved the way the light is being broken up by this flower.

Oh and by the way. The entire tree is covered in flowers. You can spot these trees a mile away with all this bright bright red just bursting!

Sorry for those who didn't want to be reminded of Christmas just yet. Bah Humbug!
October 26th, 2011  
dig the composition. is that true about your little toenails being cloven?
October 26th, 2011  
Bah humbug is right, I am already humming christmss songs. This is lovely, would love to see the full tree.
October 26th, 2011  
Really gorgeous shot.. love the sun burst coming right through.
October 26th, 2011  
@bobfoto I just read/caught the "bit about yourself." You are too funny.
October 27th, 2011  
great POV, beautiful sun flare!
October 27th, 2011  
Beautiful shot! Love the back lighting and details and composition.
October 27th, 2011  
Nice done I just love the lighting.
October 27th, 2011  
Abfab color and lighting I bet the tree is amazing
October 27th, 2011  
Just an awesome shot and love the sunlight behind it, looks great:)
October 27th, 2011  
@laceyjogautreau @clarissajohal - well after last Saturday when I mashed my little toe... I'm no longer sure if that one is cloven. It's just a mashed spud. Give that one time to see what happens...?

@cookie123 @lmasinton - might have to take a shot of said tree eh?

@michelleyoung @mjmaven @rach_who @veekay - I took one of those shots with the real spiky sun flare but I liked this one better!

@daisy - thanks :)
