Hi Ori. A fine picture of this beautiful flower against the black BG. Taken with fine detail and warm colours. Well taken TFS.

It is a case of going, going, gone. From full bloom, to closing up, to shrivelled out and at
the left bottom corner there are even remnants of yesterdays flowering. This is the old
story of the cyles of life. Yesterday I was still "standing arrow straight" and today "I ache
in places where I used to play" (courtesy of Bob Seger & Leonard Cohen). Lovely pink
flowers of this tree Lavatera and with the bright green stems it stand out nicely against
the dark BG.
Well done MF and TFS.

Thank you for that picture of Lavatera thuringiaca.
The composition as well as the point of view are very interesting. Good idea to show us a few the stages of the life from the flower of that malvaceae.
The sharpness is very good. The colors are natural and well saturated.
The contrast is very good.
Thank you for the sharing. See you soon on treknature for other pictures.
All the best.

A beautiful flower which has 3 stages of its life cycle all in one. The pink colour is very soft on the eye and especially the darker shade of pink seen on the wilted blossom is very catchy. It surely must be a delightful sight seeing these flowers all in bloom alongside the roadside whilst driving. A lovely image with a prominent composition which I enjoyed looking at. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
