Award Shortlist   


By Herge88
Hi all, this is a Dahlia which by now is probably ruined due to the atrocious weather. A few people have mentioned that they would like to see something a bit different, I will strive to do just that as soon as there is a let up in the weather.
I am supposed to be taking my granddaughter to a wildlife park tomorrow so maybe!

I am still finding myself very pushed for time, with work and other things at the moment, so I'm afraid there will still be a lot of clicking and running for a while.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Dahlias are so short lived and no good in the rain. Lovely shot and great colours. It got a bit close to the frame at the top there though. Clive

A bit late onto this due to foreign jaunts. But what's boring about it? (Please note - \i also read tags!) I love the contrast of the yellow and red, delicate versus aggressive, and the central detail is picked out to perfection.
