Reach for the Sun

.

.
Nature never ceases to amaze and delight. This stunning image is actually the reverse side of my
Firework Chrysanthemum. The same flower, two completely different pieces. Both beautifully dramatic and yet so very different in appearance with the change in perspective.

More wonderfully red images can be found here.

Great photograph from an unexpected angle and "off center."

That is just amazing- the flower and the photo! The way the veins of colour run along the petals ? Its so beautiful!

Stephanie V said...

Fireworks, indeed! The straight grain and stiffness of the petals is surely exaggerated by the macro. Love this textural contradiction. Nice RT offering.
