I saw these while wandering round a lovely old Victorian cemetery in Plymouth a few weeks ago - they were growing on top of an old family vault, so were above eye level - meaning I didn't have to prostrate myself to get the shot Wink.

Hope this appeals to you as much as it does me - I took several shots of the flowers and wild grasses, so there will be more to follow.

Thank you all so much for your support and interest in my images, I do appreciate it.

Very natural floral art Theresa and the blue sky background is the finishing touch - it's lovely.

Excellent shot and a very attractive image, very original as a result of that extremely low POV.

I like this Theresa, light and airy, thought you had made the effort to lie down but obviously notWink
An interesting and diverse portfolio, also like your paeony and meloncholy rose shots.
Thanks for your vote on my 'Escape of the Lost Souls' I would hate to admit how long it took and this is V4
My original SLR was a Zenit E, It had a built in light meter but you had to manually stop down the lens !
Built out of Russian tanks, but probably took better shots then than now Grin
