Happy new year to everybody - I wish, that the New Year turns out to be a very special one for all of you !
This beautiful 'dutch' gerbera was standing on the windowsill of my living room and it was nearly begging for a photoshoot, before it fades away. So I arranged some different backgrounds and at least, I'm quite satisfied with the results.
(Why dutch Gerbera? - I'm not sure, whether it's well known in the rest of the world, but in Europe, surely everybody knows, that orange (oranje) is the color of the Netherlands. It is the color of the royal dutch family, which hails from the House of Orange and it symbolizes a broader pride in the country and in being Dutch. Especially on sport events, like soccer, you can see thousands of fans, dressed in orange, in the stadium.)
