Wow, a spectacular, full-frame, in your face image of this Telopea (whatever that is). Ok,
I quickly Googled it and it turns out to be a New South Wales warratah which is an upright
shrub up to ±3m high and it is the official floral emblem for NSW, Australia, since 1962. The
image shows lovely colours. The subject is well removed from the darker BG and it has sharp
striking details. I just love it to bits.
Well done and TFS.
Take care and have a great weekend.
During this time of year the commercialised words "Peace & Goodwill" always gets blown
out or proclaimed in a superfluous plethora of advertisements, catalogues and billboards
by the mass media, radio and TV. Wherever one looks or listens you get blasted with
this notion, but spare a moment in your thoughts and prayers to the ill-fated realities of
those less fortunate. Those that are living in war torn countries, those whose lives were
disrupted by natural catastrophes, those that do not have enough food on the table,
those who are removed from friends and family, those who do not have the privilege of
love and laughter in their lives.
FAITH makes all things possible
LOVE makes all things BEAUTIFUL,
It is my whish that you will have all three of these in abundance for this Christmas.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a wonderful New Year!
