Pink and Green

Bit of a rushed job today which was very busy! Slightly lost the plot this morning as about 1/4 of the class turned up with various degrees of lateness to my lecture including 2 guys who arrived 15 minutes before the end of a 2 hour class. They left when I refused to let them sign the register. grr. Anywaaaay, there was at least some nice blossom out this morning for a moments beauty before the madness. Not quite spring like tonight though!
Beautiful capture. Loving the cool blue tones.

I love the illumination on the petals. Very pretty.
February 4th, 2013  
Glorious. I love the first buds of spring. No sign of it by me yet. Super lighting, lady!
February 4th, 2013  
I'm surprised you find the time. This is sublime. It's a fav!

Pretty shot, gorgeous colours, there are signs of life popping up everywere, but we are not out of the woods yet!
February 4th, 2013  
so beautiful Alison!
February 4th, 2013  
Beautiful tones!!!!
February 4th, 2013  
How encouraging to see something in bloom! Lovely light and dof.
February 4th, 2013  
Beautiful.. I like the light here..x
February 4th, 2013  
Oooh spring is sprung!! Students eh? Cheeky blighters. And then they have the nerve to be narky. I had some supervisees complain about me because I refused to mark an essay when 3 out of 4 of them had given me word for word the same piece of work. And the director of studies more or less said I could only refuse once.
February 4th, 2013  
@judithg times have changed. That would be an official enquiry now. On the upside. Marking is never ending but so far the quality is better than last year...
February 4th, 2013  
Beautiful, love how the background came out.
February 4th, 2013  
Lovely shot! No sign of spring here so I look longingly at this capture.
February 4th, 2013  
A beautiful shot Alison. Love the light and the pink against the back ground. spring has sprung somewhere then! Fave!
February 4th, 2013  
@Cherrill hmm snow is forecast!
February 4th, 2013  
@fueast Yes I was going to say that - that'll be the internet making plagiarism so easy that extra measures are required. Rachel says she has to feed all her essays through some program to make sure she hasn't accidentally got too similar to something else - when everybody is writing the same essay that must be tricky!
February 4th, 2013  
@judithg No you'd be amazed how different essays on the same topic are when people don't cheat!

Sympathy re the class. Half my students arrived back in class today after 4 days in Paris and a late return last night. I stood in front of blank faces and 1 student who only came out from behind her hand once to gaze at me blearily and then return to the shaded darkness. We lecturers need to stick together!

This is lovely. Still twiddling my thumbs waiting for our flowers to bloom here. Wonderful light, shadows and focus.
February 4th, 2013  
Love the color.
February 4th, 2013  
Tim
Wonderful blossom. Great colour dof is perfect. Lovely.
February 4th, 2013  
Beautiful light and colors. I can't believe you have fruit flowers blooming already!
February 4th, 2013  
Love the light and focus.
February 4th, 2013  
Beautiful, especially as I think I remember you saying you are not a particularly keen flower photographer! Love how the shallow dof has thrown the background out..... very pretty, right up my street, so it has to be fav'd!
February 4th, 2013  
Could be worse, you could work were I do :P
February 4th, 2013  
This is lovely and delicate.
February 4th, 2013  
You have blooms? How do you have blooms? That's crazy - can I come live with you? Loving that blue-sy background.
February 4th, 2013  
@russianblue don't panic. Snow is forecast.
February 4th, 2013  
A welcome sign of spring - love the background tones. Keeping an eye on the forecast as my youngest has an interview at York Uni on Thursday.
February 4th, 2013  
Absolutely lovely, so simple and beautifully shot.
February 4th, 2013  
@malc ha! In 1984 it snowed when I went for an interview at York uni! I remember not been able to feel my toes on the station on the way home.
February 4th, 2013  
This is so pretty ..... love the little pink flowers :)
February 4th, 2013  
Love this Alison - small is beautiful.
February 4th, 2013  
Lovely light and colours. Were definitely moving from white to colour at last ( with maybe the odd blip between if it snows again)!
February 4th, 2013  
Well I say it again.Leeds is obviously the place to live........pink blossom? all we've got is sludgy sog!!! This is so pretty just lifts the spirit, just what you need with those wretched students!! a fav
February 4th, 2013  
The shot is gorgeous but do you always get blooms this early? We are just now getting winter!
February 4th, 2013  
@meisen325 well they could be dead by tomorrow...
February 4th, 2013

Great dof. Lovely pretty pink petals against the background colour.
February 5th, 2013  
Right now, this is what I am longing for. Signs of new life in the trees. Beautiful capture Alison! I like the light and the background color nicely accentuates the pink!
February 5th, 2013  
Blossoms in January? Wow... not here. But, it is a pleasure to see them.
