Amazing flower and great photo! thanks for showing us that beauty :) All the best, Juan José

Ian Stehbens on November 7, 2008

Thanks so much, Juan José. I think you are responsible for this photo: teaching me to go in close, to boldly crop, to allow out of focus areas to play there part in the composition, to celebrate the remarkable colours of the flowers.

Best wishes

Hi Antonio, and thanks for your congratulatory message. It is a remarkable flower so I wanted to portray its majesty somehow and macro seemed the best.
