Hallo Ferran
We have been away for 3 weeks and I missed out on some lovely images which is a pity. This striking 5 petalled purple flowers stole my heart in a flash upon browsing through the gallery. It is well photographed and one can see the details very clearly. I like the very long stems, as well as the unopened flowerbuds in the background. Unopened flowerbuds is one of my personal favourite features in an image containing a flower. Thanks for sharing and best regards.
I'll be posting some great images of our Kruger National Park vacation soon.

Bonjour Ferran,
Très belle publication sous un excellent angle de prise de vue permettant d'apprécier deux aspects d'un sujet bien valorisé sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hellow Ferran,
Just paging through your interesting archives my eye caught this amazing image.A great perspective and DOF creating a two layered image with the OOF rocks.The flower seems to have a very intricate stem base.
