Beautiful shot.

That is beautiful, Herman. Is it indeed a nightshade? Have you ever seen the floral photos from Robert Mapelthorpe? Like this photo, he often used a color background to his photos, and had simple and elegant compositions. I really like this image, my friend.

Morning Herman you are so lucky to have the rain, since Xmas we have had virtually nothing. V2 for me, I like the composition. Enjoy...John

Two beautiful images, Herman, but the presentation of V.1 is the definite winner for me. Carol

2 beautiful shots Herman, I think the 2nd is just my favourite as I think the reflection works very well, however V1's red bg also works admirably.
