“You are the sun
I am the dew
Gifted with life for a moment or two
That I for my time
May sparkle and shine
O Sun, come fill me with you.”
~Peter Mayer


LOOK HERE [photoblog.com] for more of this week's PTC.

This plant was about 18 inches/46 cm tall….so you can imagine where I was when I took the shot! In the dirt!
I think people walking by on a nearby trail were worried when they saw me lying there….one lady even waved to
make sure I was okay :)))

      Great Capture. It is interesting to think how many things this is a normal view for. An Ant's eye view of the world. :) Wonderfully captured. Like that someone paid attention enough to wonder if you were alright.

      This capture is worth all the pain and the dirt! Your perfect exposure enhances the delicate details in the blooms.

      I can imagine you making this picture, but the best pictures are done from the place under the flower or plant. this is very pretty!

      Great angle to capture the light through the petals and the beautiful bokeh in the background.
