Macro shot of a perfect yellow nasturtium bloom showing the amazing fringe texture and inner details. I took this at Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, Pennsylvania (USA) yesterday with my Pentax Optio 90 on a 1 cm focal setting.

Eye-filling paintings and photos excite me. Mine are inspired by the interplay of color, especially when it creates a cheerful and thoughtful impression. I am a photographer/writer/artist and love both nature and tech stuff. I also publish garden books — see my website. Thanks for looking at my work.
