Pink Daisy burst

By Hermanus
Taken in a mist rain and played around with on PicMonkey Smile
Thank you so much for all the messages of concern about me - I really am well but just very busy and decided to lay off EPZ for a season until normality returns to my life. I do miss spending quality time on epz enjoying everybody's great images ! I don't like just uploading and then not looking at my friends' images.
We did have a bit of a scary time with our son contracting a bug after swimming in the third dam at the reservoir - three days of gastro ending up with an allergic reaction to the medication and having to go to hospital - all that before writing his first Maths paper without much study. His year mark is in the low 80 % so that should pull him through.
Have a great day !!

Fabulous image Herman - superb result and such a colour too!
We did wonder where you had gone to!! Life in the fast lane eh?! Glad your son has recovered too. Smile

Hey Herman, welcome e back. I have missed you. This is an extraordinary photo....the rays of light (?) coming from the flower is quite amazing. That sounds kind of frightening with your son. I hope his recovery continues with ease.

I feel the same as you Herman, on times when I am very busy and there is not enough time to comment on others images I would rather have a break.

I hope your son is getting over his illness, it is such a worry.

As for the image, it is beautifully worked. - gary
