This beautifully coloured flower is on a succulent which was given to me a couole of years ago. Last year, it was red! The plant is relatively large and so are the flowers: this one is 7½ inches across and I don’t think it’s fully open yet; it’s also quite a heavy flower. The petals are slightly succulent, too.

I love the peachy colours which vary slightly according to where you stand.

Tripod-mounted Pentax K100D, Sigma 28 – 80 mm lens; Manual mode; shot in RAW.

1/400 th second exposure;
f/22.0’;
IDO 800; and 80.00 mm focal length.
Available natural light ( outdoors, under a verandah.

Thanks for looking, I hope you like it.

    so fresh and pretty!!

  • I’m glad you enjoyed this one, Michlyn; I think peach colours are usually seen as fresh. The size of the unopened buds gives an idea of the size of flower when it’s open. I’m glad you enjoyed it’s beauty.
