TFS and G's,

Hallo Ori
The variety of vibrant colours on this Crocus moabiticus is really eye-catching and has a feeling of warmth and almost friendliness that surrounds it. The details of the yellow anthers and the orange styles are very warm and bright and compliment the light lilac petals with its lavender veins beautifully. It is indeed a pleasing flower, the colours are really beautiful and without a doubt a painters dream. It can only be a sheer pleasure to see this flower in real. A striking and vibrant image to end 2009 and start 2010. Thanks for sharing. I wish you and your family the all of the best, which you so well deserve. May you have a wonderful photographic year in 2010. Best regards.

hello Ori

great shot and a Happy New Year to you and Family

Happy New Year, Ori.
I love the POV on this flower. Very graceful arrangement of stamens and pistils and petals.
The colors are brilliant.
I also like the subtle purple vein patterns in the pale petals.
Lovely composition.
TFS. : )

Bonjour Ori,

A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
