Day 189

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF Zoom 70-300; 130 mm, ISO 160; f/4,5 ; 1/2000 s.

We don’t have seasons and therefore, we don’t have a proper spring.

The good thing about living in this country is that you don’t need to have seasons to get to know the snow, the flowers, and the leaves on the floor; Colombia has lots of things, specially flowers.

This country is the second largest flower exporter in the whole world; it’s estimated that 450 million flowers are exported only for Saint Valentine’s Day, the flower growers say that 12% of their sales come from Saint Valentine, and the place where they export the most is the United States.

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.



En Colombia no tenemos estaciones, por lo tanto no tenemos una primavera como tal; la ventaja de vivir en un país como éste, es que no se necesitan estaciones para conocer la nieve o ver flores.

Colombia tiene muchas cosas, una de ellas son las flores; es el segundo exportador más grande de ellas en todo el mundo; se estima que sólo en el día de San Valentín se exportan unas 450 millones; los floricultores dicen que sólo ese día representa un 12% de sus ventas,  y su mejor comprador es Estados Unidos.

Críticas, comentarios y/o sugerencias son bienvenidas.

  1. I cannot imagine living in a place where zinnias grow year round! I am growing them this year, but must begin them indoors under lights until it is warm enough to bring them outdoors. They immediately die when exposed to any frost. This is a lovely photo of a lovely grouping of zinnias in a lovely country.

  2. I agree with Lance. The Zinnia is an old fashioned flower. It is hardy in some parts of the US. My mother grew them in a “cut flower” area to use as house flowers. There are some double kinds (with full heads now). They are hybrids. This is a lovely photo.

  3. Beautiful photo!! You never disappoint.. You bokeh background is exceptional.
    (however, i’m not talking to you.. just rub it in about having wonderful weather all year round. Hummpf)

  4. Esta me encanta, el primer plano perfectamente enfocado con unos bellos colores y el fondo de un color que resalta la belleza de estas florecita,s muy buena!!!!!

  5. You have me thinking that no matter where you turn, there is something gorgeous to photograph! Here it is flat and boring and I really struggle to find something of interest. I think you just may be in a photographer’s paradise.
