    As I watched my neighbor's vine continue to grow, I decided to take a picture of the way it framed her gate.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it is a Morning Glory vine.

    I think so, but they aren't as blue here.

    Don't stand there long taking pics! It will run up your leg :supergrin:

    the differences could simply be PPing.

    but then, what do I know. I've got some of that red/green CB BS. :frown:

    I did slightly increase the saturation during PP, but didn't alter the color any. I shot this with a Canon A95, and based on past experience with it, it does have a tendency to go "heavy" on the blue spectrum.

    Different soil, climate and other little things can alter the color in a flower from one region to another. Odd but kinda cool. :)
