LUUK - give us more!

hostanistaNovember 10, 2013

In response to the never-ending thread entitled "Hosta Leaf Close Ups and Such" originally posted by Don_in_Colorado in July, there are now 132 follow-ups, sheesh! Tired of scrolling all the way to the end to see the latest. Yes I know I can do a Crtl+End to hurry to the last page, but I digress. Great, great photos, all. I am particularly inspired by the latest entries from LUUK in Switzerland. I'm guessing that you, LUUK, are a professional photographer, or if you aren't you should be! What beautiful close ups - my favourite: Clear Fork River Valley. Now THAT'S a close up. Tell me you have more please and post them here!

Hi Hostanista, moccasinlanding and hostahillbilly,
I'm glad you liked the photos, thank you for the compliments, I appreciated, â¦really !
I'm not a photographer, I am a graphic designer but I always had a passion for all artistic expressions. The nature has always inspired me and I am convinced that at the nature likes to be observed :-)
I do not have more photos of hostas, spring will come again.

'It's almost time to say goodbye to the young May' is an astonishing image!

I agree with Kathy---young May is a wonderful image.

My hosta obsession began in 2011. In 2012 Beverly started a thread of Fall Colors. I never ever noticed hosta fall colors before that thread. (Thanks Beverly!) And now you have introduced extreme closeups. All I can say is that it is good that my hostas are just about finished for the season because I'd be outside taking extreme closeups! It seems that one obsession leads to another! (LOL)

That shot of the whole plant, it looks like gummy candy to me....Yummmm....Or those confectioners' creations made with shaped, colored sugar.
