Yes. I had never seen anything quite like these meadows except maybe in Monet’s paintings. Thank you!
All good photos, but the top three are almost uncanny. Ken
Very kind! Thank you. Can I pop by around 6ish tonite for dinner? 🙂
You don’t want to pop by now–it’s all leftovers. We’re running around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to get our acts together for a trip to Haiti at the end of next week. Friday and Saturday we’re cooking for three blog posts. Pray for us. 🙂
Thank you Rebecca, as was your last post!
Truly dreamy! The colors are so beautiful!
They were stunners! Thank you for visiting!
Wow! beautiful photos post after post. I wonder how many photos you have taken… Fae.
I still have some more of the gorgeous flamingos in the flowers! Loving your Carribean posts as well!
Beautiful photos, Cindy!
Thank you Kristin. It is a beautiful place!
It was. I’m home now and missing that wonderful meadow! Cheers to you Jasmine.
Cheers to you cindy your the BEST!!!!
Back to you X2!
Monet indeed! The pink flamingos look so natural!
They are natural. Pink, red and black Austral Flamingos. Flamingos can be less colorful if they eat less pink shrimp. Their diet gives them the pink, but the red and black made them stunning!
Gorgeous sea of colors – love your floral photography. These images are awesome!
So kind Mary. Thank you!
Wow, what gorgeous photos. Magnificent colors.
Appreciate your comments. It was so easy to take photos in Patagonia because beauty was everywhere! Thank you!
More nice shots. Thanks for taking us on vacation.
Oh good and you don’t have to pack or fly in an airplane! 🙂
Or pay the fees associated with a vacation.
You are bringing photography to an art form, Cindy. The diversity and brilliance of color in these shots is astounding! I’ve never seen such an abundance of beautiful flowers. And I’m sure Monet would have done the flamingos if he’d had them as models.
I think Monet would have gone to town with the Flamingos! Can’t you just imagine them in his paintings? Thank your for your ongoing kindness Paul.
Your photos are amazing
Thank you ma deah! Very kind of you!
Simply lovely. The first shot with the reflections of the flamingos … wonderful.
Much appreciated, thank you!
Lot of nice flowers
Bravo and thank you for sharing.
These are fantastic! How uplifting on what is a cold, dark and windy night here…for a moment I was transported away to a lovley summery day without a care in the world ….lost in nature and it’s beauty! Those red flowers are amazing….so rich and deep in colour… 🙂
Something about flowers that just make me happy, expecially ones as lovely as these. Glad you enjoyed them & thanks~
Wow! The colors are so vibrant they literally SING! I especially love the hibiscus!
So glad. I have always loved hibiscus!
I have too! Thank you!
Thank you Cindy for your kind comments on my blog . Also thank you for presenting so many beautiful photos . I always enjoy viewing them .
Well deserved and thank you as well!
Excellent photos Cindy!!
Beautiufl pictures – vivid colors!
Very kind & appreciated! Thank you.
Oh wow, my first thought when I saw these pictures was that it’s a good thing I’m not with you — I would just sit down and refuse to leave! Very beautiful — I love the USA but we just can’t compete with THAT, lol
I guess these wonderful flowers burst to life in places where the winters are harsh. I have seen the same thing in Alaska….so yes we can compete!!! Cheers to you and your beautiful new grandbaby!
The photos of the flowers, landscape, birds and animals are amazing, thank you for sharing them with us…
Thank you too for your wonderful photos. You are an inspiration!
Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. We have so many flamingos here from October to April each year. They are lovely. The flowers gorgeous and soon we will have massive fields of red poppies everywhere.
Photos please? I didn’t know there were flamingos in France??? What a surprise. I would love to see photos & thank you!
I came across Patagonia in a book about Magellan’s voyage to the Philippines…what got stuck in my mind was the entry about the “giants”…
I read Pigafetta’s translated diary of Magellan’s voyage while we were in Patagonia and Antarctica. He encountered a tall group of native people whom were referred to as giants. He took one as a prisoner to return on his voyage. This prisoner was converted and died enroute. Magellan called the area Tierra del Fuego or land of fires because the native people’s who lived there maintained continuous fires to stay warm in the cold climate. Most of these Tierra del Fuegans were short statured as was Magellan and Europeans of his time. So the tall native interested Magellan. The net result of the European’s arrival in this part of the world was the extinction of both the short statured Tierra de Fuegans and the ‘giants’. I think there was one female Tierra del Fuegan still alive at the time we were there, but don’t quote me on any of this, I am going by memory. In any case it was particularly horrible what happened to these amazing people living at the southern end of the earth.
