#298-365 Spiral

I am not trying to infer that the atmosphere in Australia is the colour of the background in my last two pictures, they are both a result of background/foreground foliage. Yesterday I think it was movement caused due to the exposure time of the Moon shot but here it is my concept of Bokeh and again I love what I achieved as it was what I wanted. BTW this isn't a spiral Galaxy, it is a passionfruit tendril growing along our fence.

For those soles interested I will post the solution to puzzle #2 tomorrow morning just before we leave on our trip, so if you know the solution you have about 24 hours until all is revealed (Unless I forget and Tammy will confirm my unreliability).

See ya

Very interesting. Thanks for identifying it as I had no idea what it was.

That's a really cool shot. Good eye to see the spiral there...

And I still don't get why your background is green in your previous (moon) shot. How can foliage be a background to a celestial body? Any foliage will be in front of the moon, not behind it. So confused....

That does look out of this world Ron, it's eerily beautiful. I'm with Julie on the moon shot.

Great, Ron. You are excelling in picking out details.

Lovely! I know it was some kind of plant, but I never could have guessed it was a passionfruit. One of my favorite fruits. So nice to be able to go out to the fence and pick one. :)

A most interesting shot! Ain't nature grand (and occasionally a little weird)?
Well done!

Ok, Ron, I am looking for the answer to your puzzle - better be there b4 you leave - the tickers ticking.....
by the way, love your bokeh and your spiral!

Good catch for using this for the theme! One of those thigns we see so often that we no longer "see" them!

It's amazing how many natural spirals there are in nature. Lvoe the bokeh in this photo, too.
