Bio of an artist is in his works, nothing else required…
id love to ask you how or why the sun is the shaped like a flower!!!!! an incredible shot!
The sun is shaped like a flower because Helene used a small aperture and you get diffraction from the diagpragm hence also the slight rainbow effect in the star. Just close the aperture right down to as small as possible in a P&S or below f16 (f22 is good) in a dSLR. It works a treat and this is a lovely mystic image. I’d just get rid of the green reflection in the bottom (or add a few more with a lens flare filter might be even better)
Thank you Peter for this technical comment much clearer than would have been mine ! Actually I think the green UFO is what keeps this picture from looking like a completely typical boring sunset… ;-)

thank you for replying! personally,it is the green reflection in the bottom that makes this much more interesting for me! but then i am a colour fan! and named GREENstone!!!!!!!!
Thank you Greenstone, glad you like it indeed !
Very well done.
Thank you FailingMemory !
Thank you Steve !
A great capture of the searing heat of this wonderful place, I assume you visited Petra ? Regards,h
Thanks h, actually it was a delightfully cool end of the day. Pictures can be so misleading… No Petra this time, I went there during another visit in Jordan some years ago and was told it is very much tourist spoilt now !
the touch of green is almost like a heavenly reminder of how green this place once was, wonderful capture Helene
Thank you Richard, this place is surely very inspiring…
Thanks for sharing with the Art of the Middle East group.
