Today...flower from my garden.
Gerbaria and I dedicate this to our TL friend "Tanburi".

He has lot of wonderful flower photos.
Beautiful, colorful, and well presented.

I've two plants yellow and red.
This is top angle view, and not up-side-down photo.
I cropped mulch, dirt, and broken petals due to hail storms we'd.
Early morning sun rays, ISO 100..by hand shot.

Thanks for popping folks
and have a nice week.
The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.

Vandana, these flowers shots are quickly becoming (one of) your trademark(s) on tl ;o). And rightfully so, they really are well made. In this one I like the beautiful strong contrast between the petals and the backdrop. The droplets, perfectly sharp, add a nice touch.
Very well done.

Boa noite Vandana

Spectacular definition of "a crying sun". Amazing.

My regards


Hello Vandana

Beautifully sharp - the droplets are amazing. Exposure well handled.



Hoi Vandana,
Great presentation of this beautiful flower. Good choice: black background and an open frame.
