Delicate Tiny Yellow Flowers

These were blooming along the trail where we regularly walk.

SILLY TUESDAY - Many thanks to all of those who participated in Silly Tuesday yesterday.

LOW TIDE - today is the lowest tide of the year along the Oregon Coast (-3 ft.). A number of us from the Photo Arts Guild are going out to shoot tidepools. Thus will be late on commenting and responding.

Ron from Saint Louis, United States

Beautiful balance in your composition, Jack ... the yellow and green together are so beautifully complementary ... seems to me that yellow and green have serious symbolism in that other great university town in Oregon!

25 Jun 2009 12:33pm

@Ron: Emphasis on "other" (I say that despite the fact that one of our boys went to U of O).
