We had an amazing sunset and I took some flower images against the sky Smile
V2 - fire in the clouds
We are in the middle of summer holidays and I get very little computer time ! Please forgive me for my absence - I will visit again asap. Off to Cape Town in about an hour - taking our son and his Kayak to visit with a friend for a few days Smile
Have a super day !!

Mid summer for you whilst we are in mid winter today up north: and what a marvellous sky, quite sulphurous in V 2.
Interesting backdrop for your flower in V 1, Herman, although it does tend to draw the eye away from the subject.
But congrats on thinking a bit differently.
