Pretty in Pink

By Possum  
Sorry, it's yet another kaffir - but they ARE in season and blooming in profusion down south at the moment!

Shot on F11, AV priority. Still trying to get the b/ground evenly lit... But I was really pleased with the focus work on this one.

Thanks for looking; will be having a bit of a catch-up with EPZ this weekend Smile
