[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It seems in Chinese culture red is a lucky colour. This may be why the whole city of Panzhihua is named after this fine bright red flowering plant. This city is lucky as although it is remote (15 hours drive from major city Chengdu) it is lucky to have some of the best iron ore mines in China.

Hi Murray,
This is a glorious looking red flower. I like the way the light is shining on part of it. So pretty.

Have a close friend living in Shangai; he says the same things you do re: China.
A great capture indeed.
Excellent clarity.
OUTSTANDING focusing job.
Another great composition and presentation, my dear friend.
Best regards,

Hi Murray,
