Deon, I have always said that one of the hardest things to photograph is the plants and flowers in their natural environment. They tend to be a great head-breaker to deal with exposure to sunlight or shade. Your work with this exotic plant (for me, which I live in central-eastern Argentina) as far as exposure in particular is concerned is simply great. You have done a great honor to this wonderful botanical jewel.

A pleasure to know your work,

Hello Deon,
Thanks for visiting my gallery. I just return from a short trip to Danube Delta.....I will post some interesting scenes.....
I can not describe in words what nature can show.....a fantastic bird world on water.....
This flowering plant has superb colors and I like the razor sharp details of the flowers....
