A two toned cactus dahlia captured in situ in PCP's Demonstration Garden yesterday with a shadowed wall as b/g: minimal processing other than crop to square.

My thanks to all for the comments on Cooling Off and with special thanks to Adrian {tomcat} for his User Award which is greatly appreciated.

Ronnie.

a very fitting title for this floral firework.
as usual perfect lighting.
I wonder why they didn't list you among the top 10 flower photographers, yours are always perfectly lit and so natural that you could reach out and touch them.
