A simple wild Daisy facing a nearly mid day sun, full of energy and life. These are my Christmas greetings to all TL Members. A healthy Christmas full of energy and life.
May the child Jesus bless everyone whatever your religion would be. We all believe that Someone Great is above us.

A Merry Christmas to all and your families

Hi Francis,
Be carefull with pointing your camera into such a bright sun. I could break your camera or/and lens.
Anyway, the result is stunning, with a beautiful translucent look on the Daisy.

Seasonal grettings to you and your family.
The vivid colours being illuminated brings a smile to us all, especially us at the colder, wetter parts of the planet.

Hello Francis,
Thanks my friend,I too wish you Merry Christmas****
With regards,

Joyeux Noel et Joyeux Temps des Fêtes,

Nice close-up Francis, excellent light control here. Nice POV showing the translucense of the flower. As Niek said aiming camera at sunlight could be armfull to the camera and to the eye. If you decide to take the risk with the camera, just make sure you don't take the risk for your eye, and one way to avoid it is to use the liveview fonction of you camera, but then you will expose you sensor even more to the sun. By the way, I am amazingly suprised to see how Sigma handle well the flare in extreme conditions. Good point for Sigma. Once again, have some nice HOLIDAYS,


Hi Francis,

Beautiful ray of sun and colors. Very good light handling.
