African daisies are a favorite of mine for their expressiveness and color, and this magenta/purple shade is one I find especially appealing in a green setting. I chose to capture this daisy with my macro lens wide open to create a soft and dreamy impression. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/2.0, 1/400 sec., ISO 100, open shade, handheld) The texture (VanDyke from the Tableaux collection) is from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.

    I love the way these Daisys ~ as they are opening ~ always appear to reach up toward the heavens in a way of saying “thank you”.
    “Thank you” Celeste for this beautiful image. So lovely to view before heading off to bed…

  • Thank you very much, Sharon! I like your interpretation of the symbolism in the way these flowers open!
