    A few more of the wild Dogwoods from Harriman State Park.
    ( as opposed to the domesticated ones like I have in my yard :))
    They are scattered about in the shallow woods along the park Drive. Some are on their way out and some are getting stronger. I had been following a few for years and decided this year I would look for a few new subjects. All comments welcome and thanks for viewing regards,
    Dean

    I love dogwoods, had them in my yard in Spokane, but none here in Utah.

    Neat pair of shots. I really like that first one where the blooms appear so isolated amongst the almost bare trees around it.

    We had a red twigged dogwood in our yard in SLC. It seemed to do fine in the Utah winters and added some nice color to the yard in the snow with the red branches.

    I'm with Alan, the first really grabbed me - nicely done B&W treatment.

    How cool Dean! It’s interesting to see these since I am heading home now from 2 days of shooting Dogwoods in Yosemite so I have Dogwoods on the brain. :eek:

    The starkness of the B&W really helps #1 to stand out. But I do like the pink/red blooms in #2 as the Dogwoods in Yosemite have white blooms. So seeing a colorful bloom speaks to me.

    That first one is spectacular, Dean. The white blooms stand out in perfect contrast to the background greys and blacks.
