V 2: full frontal approach

Details: see EXIF

My grateful thanks to all who supported "Last Light"......I was delighted at the response, and to Adrian {"adrian_reynolds"} my special thanks for his UA.

Ronnie.

I do like the back view especially with the back lighting as well. Both are very good but the backlight makes all the differnece and wins the day for me Ronnie. It shines like a great torch out of the darkness.

A pair of superb images, Ronnie - both well up to your usual high standard. V1 has to be my favourite today - love the more unusual POV, the light shining through the petals and the fuzzy textures of the stalk and calyx. Stunning.
