O God my heart is fixed I will sing and give praise even with my glory..
Psalms 108: 1

Glad to see any morning glory
Bloom in the color blue.
E'en tho' long over-due;
But this is not a sad story...

Today 4 were on the vine...
I will not pout or whine,
Because a few are late,
This year in growing.
Praise God they didn't wait
Til' it starts snowing!!!.

Poetry by me, AJP

It was very windy this morning. Consequently I used a tripod, flash on camera, a faster shutter speed and ISO number plus stopped down to get as much detail as I possibly could. I shot this morning glory in the shade.

Focal length 300mm/macro
F-Number F/22
Exposure time 1/200
ISO Speed 400
Flash on camera
Exposure program, manual
Tripod

Thank you so much Ann Reece for nominating this photo...

    Thank you all for your kind words.. I love morning glories and it was worth the
    long wait to see them bloom which is so unusual they are blooming this late....
    This morning when I checked on them the vine is covered with morning glories and they are looking glorious...Ann, I wish there would be a theme challenge on the color blue...

    This is one of the best morning glory shots I have ever seen. It is hard not to blow out the center white but you nailed the exposure on this. Beautiful!!
