After a long drive through the dry heights of the northern Cape my wife spotted these amazing flowers. Each 3-4 cm across. Its fantastic to see them emerging from the dry soil. Though there must be some humidity in the soil, since it was a high-cold area of about 1500m. above sea level.

Absolutely beautiful, Ori.
How did you capture that almost metallic sheen on those incredibly vibrant colors?
Excellent POV to show the perfect symmetry of nature.
I love the light on the flower most of all.
TFS. : )

Bonjour Ori,
Tu connais mon attrait pour les Romulea. Je reste sans voix .... Sublime !

Hi Ori, this is quite amazing, such a burst of colour and light and, as you say, remarkable against the dry soil. Very good exposure and good use of light, nice and clear and sharp. Great shot.

Very Silky. Love the layers of colors here. The flower really stands out against the redish brown dirt and the touch of green. Sharpness is in all the right places.
