[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As versatile as it's beautiful, cold hardy Geranium 'Rozanne' grows happily in sunny borders, on banks and raised beds, in pots and even in hanging baskets. In all instances it attracts attention for the masses of jewel-like, violet blue, saucer shaped flowers which keep on coming from early summer until they are halted by the first frosts of autumn. In mild climates it will often carry on flowering into winter.

The flowers, which when you look at them close-up are quite beautiful with their light blue to white centres and delicate veining, are set off by the lush, green foliage.

That foliage, which is quite dense, makes Geranium 'Rozanne' good at covering the ground, each plant capable of smothering any weeds as it spreads for up to a meter. The height is half that.

Hi Gary,
Warm welcome on TN.
Beautiful flowers with such lovely soft colours and sharpness. I like the colour contrasts here and the fabulous bunch of flowers and the OOF ones. Excellent POV to portray this charming scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Gary,
It's not that I disliked your first posting but this second one is much better.
Very colourful in this beautiful soft light. The soft background isolates your subject just enough so we still know it's environment. Very good DOF indeed with plenty of detail in the petals and foreground foliage. Very good POV as well. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, Dan

Hallo Gary
This is really a beautiful photo. I am sure if you look through my critiques given to fellow members, you’ll notice that the majority of them are awarded to photos containing something with the colour of purple. I love purple and even created a theme with the title "My purple obsession." Thanks for sharing this beautiful flower with us. Although you mention in your notes the colour blue I see it different and the lilac and pink colour is just perfect and the violet anthers are bright and clearly visible. A stunning close-up, with sharp details. I like the way you blurred the flowers in the background. Thanks for sharing. I have added this photo to my theme.
Kind regards
