A Little Fireworks by Richard G Witham

Happy Independence Day to all my friends from the USA!

I created this poster in celebration of the USA Independence Day using my photo Nature’s Fireworks .

The explosion in this photograph is a macro view of a cat’s claw blossom, (Mimosa nuttallii) which in this case was around 1/2" in diameter, taken along a country road in Habersham County, GA

These wildflowers begin to bloom just before independence day in the USA, as if in simulation of the fireworks to be seen across the nation on July 4th.

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.

    What a lovely little flower, RIchard, and perfect for the occasion! Amazing colours and shape! ;o)

  • Thank you Krys. These blossoms vary from pale pink to bright red. I really liked this one’s bright neon pink.
