Oranje Gerbera

by Heike January. 02, 2018 1975 views

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.)

Absolutely stunning....I love the Gerberer , and all the bright colours you can get it in.  In South Africa we have the Barberton Daisy which is family of the gerberer.

#1 - ist ein exzeptionelles, wunderschönes Foto. Die Perspektive und die Schärfe in einem kleinen Bereich der Staubgefäße sind toll!
