Outside at the time a thunderstorm is raging, it rains horizontally and winter still isn't in sight at all.
So, back to summer memories ...
This is a top view of a Leucanthemum flower, a genus of flowering plants in the aster family, Asteraceae. I photographed it in front of plants on the ground and I was especially attracted by the contrast in colours.
I think the photo goes with our theme of January.
We were forecast wintery showers today and some parts of the UK have got the snow, but here the sun is blazing although there is a wickedly cold wind.
Lovely reminder of summer...I'm counting the days! Love the strong colours.
Beautiful color of the flower, one good thing about being in a place with the 4 seasons and fertile soil, there so many different flowers between the spring and summer and even fall...Lovely memories of the summer in this cold cold winter days.
Can't wait for the longer days :-) Oh boy such a stormy day here too, Germany is hit badly I've just read. I am sick of the wind meanwhile, it goes on and on. At one point I worried that the window would break this morning. The more it is very enjoyable to see your image and something of the summer time, things we can look forward to. Lovely image, Frank, really nice how the middle yellow part sticks out, it sort of emerges from the photograph ... lifting. Very good, excellent compo.
Cher ami Frank,
Revoir l'été à travers cette fleur où le soleil prend naissance en son milieu, cela fait chaud au coeur.
Merci de faire vibrer nos sensibilités à travers ces biens jolies compositions.
