[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For the past several years I have seen from a distance these gorgeous flowers growing along the sea wall in the marina where the tide often gets thier roots wet with salt water. The sea wall is composed of large rocks piled up, and has a sign saying DANGEROUS KEEP OFF. This year I dared to ask permission to climb out onto the rocks of the sea wall to get close enough to photograph the flowers. This is my favorite of the images I got. The dark background is the water of the marina.
