Under the stunning canopy of the Delonix regia , or as we call it in Israel "Tze'elon", a "Flamboyant" in English, blossoms once every year in spring .
A trial I made with the backlight, taken in Givatayim street not far from home.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Magnifique arbre flamboyant que l'on trouve également aux Antilles.
L'ensemble ressort bien joliment sur ce fond de ciel bleu.
Très bonne journée.

Hi Ike,absolutely beautiful this pic dedicate to this red flamboyant.Impressive details everyhwere and a great exposure,a great festival of colors as i like! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

What a lovely and natural canopy to have Ike, the colors are rich and enticing...so much better than a traditional canvas canopy. :) You sure caught this at the right time too, the red/green/blue color combination is alive and well! There's also a fun play of light and shade to enhance the overall visual. I like the idea to fill the frame with this isolated section, making for an immediate visual impact. Hard to argue natures allure when its in bloom such as this, and you took full advantage of the timing. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take good care.

Ike, you used the right word "flamboyant" for the colors and I will use the same word for your composition!!
natural and beautiful!!
Royaldevon (39344) 2014-06-08 0:13
I can see why it is called flamboyant!
The tree has more blossom than leaves ... or does the blossom emerge before the leaves?
The branches have good textures and show the dappled light nicely, revealing how the tree is shielding most of the rays with its colourful surfaces.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Wonderful detail of the nature!
l like the fresh, vivid colours and the POV.
jhm (153686) 2014-06-08 2:32
This is really a very nice picture with the blossoms
Very soft contrast between the red blossoms and the branches of the tree and the blue sky in background.
Colours and sharpness make these picture very attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
ourania (46264) 2014-06-08 4:57
an effective simple composition with lovely natural patterns and colours all over the frame. I like very much how you isolated this part of the tree, the branches offer some solid diagonals and the foliage is stunningly colourful and charming. The sky makes a fine, luminous, contrasting backdrop. The way the light filtres through the colourful foliage is so agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
mirosu (16265) 2014-06-08 5:34
Excellent blooming tree arrangement in excellent light and nice red colors. Contrast against blue sky is very nice and the well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
This tree is very common in Malaysia, India and also other south- and southeast Asian countries.
Very well done.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-06-08 6:46
Interesting look tree, I don't I've seen one in person. Nicely captured with good pov and dof with nice details. Love the colors of the flowers. Well done, tfs.

Lep pogled na drvo sa crvenim cvetovima ...
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano drvo i crveni cvetovi, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
A nice view of a tree with red flowers ...
Good work, beautiful wood shown and a red flower, beautiful colors.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

A spectacular image of great beauty, wonderful tree with these bright red flowers, is striking, gorgeous POV in that environment also showing up branches and leaves.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Happy start to the week.

superb colorful image. Wonderful picture with so many details
mkamionka (37193) 2014-06-09 6:15
lovely composition. It resembled at first sight a bit the lemon brush trees which I remember from California. I never managed to take a good photo of them. Beautiful colors, very well done,

Wünsch dir einen schönen Tag

it´s an excellent example how the spring feels like in your beautiful country.It looks and feels so colorful and fresh.
Good close-up view and outstanding clarity of the image.And the vivid colors do not even need any comment-truly fabulous!
Have a nice day
mcmtanyel (23309) 2014-06-10 19:36
I see you are running your new DSLR through its paces and it is happy to oblige. Great light management for this backlit photo. The colors are lovely, too.
clic (17129) 2014-06-11 7:33
You are quite talented! I know by experience it's very difficult to expose without flash under a canopy with such perfect results while getting an overexposed sky.
A stryking burst of colors, indeed!
nikkitta (17066) 2014-06-11 12:46
It seems Spring has arrived with impresive flowers not seen in Argentina
Great capture, original POV obtaining a good contrast with the blue sky

Magnifique beauté des couleurs et de sa forme, un beau rouge flamboyant en bon contraste avec le vert et le fond bleu
delpeoples (58278) 2014-06-12 4:58
Ciao dear Ike
What beautiful blossoms, colours and light control. I am trying to think of the equivalent here, perhaps Wisteria? I am not sure. In any event, they are exquisite. Wonderful shot, and good tight framing.
Miguel82 (27646) 2014-06-15 8:33
Good close up on that Delonix regia (flame tree) blossoming, bright hues, sharp picture Ike, another pleasant nature contribution, have a good we
Gigidusud (21151) 2014-06-15 14:19
Gorgeous tree in bloom with beautiful colors. A splendid spring composition with a great light management. I like a lot!
Have a nice week my friend.
jmdias (64940) 2014-07-05 6:57
we had a big flamboyant near my home, but its roots broke the wall near the house and we were obligated to cut it. it is a very beautiful tree and I like this angle catching part of its beauty.
ChrisJ (114621) 2014-07-15 2:29
These grow very well in suburban Brisbane Australia. But the seed pods are a hazard when mowing long grass on the footpath underneath. I usually rake them up beforehand. We just call them poinciana but some folks call them Royal poinciana as well as Flamboyants. Effective tight framing with good sharpness. Tfs!
NorthernLight (2383) 2014-07-21 13:42
what a spectacle of color! And all the colors harmonize beautifully with each other. But what is that? It looks as if sausages grow on this tree.
Do you know the tale of the land of plenty? Where fried chicken flying through the air and all the food in abundance are available?
Admit it, Ike: You know the way to this country and have photographed the tree there. :-)
A magnificent picture, which is very suitable to lighten the mood.
All the best from the north
abmdsudi (54555) 2014-07-25 12:59
A vibrant close up shot of a wonderful gift of nature when this is brightened profusely by the 'blossoms of the flame' Such delicious colours and a most exotic to my eyes well spotted subject and your picture is nicely treated in particular the exposure and clarity fulfilling the moment. Contrast to green and blue is just perfect making it so appealing to the eye. Well done. Congrats
