Day 160 of my ‘A Photo A Day’ project.

Nearly all the flowers in our garden have gone, even these Rudbeckia flowers, which seemed to go on and on and on. This is the same plant in day 53 and day 130. The thing I like most about this photo, is that even though the flower is dying, it still looks amazingly beautiful and interesting. I like to think it’s a great example that even though it’s no longer a bright, beautiful yellow flower, it’s still just as wonderful.

    Absolutely beautiful shot. I agree, even though it is withered and dying, there is such a depth of beauty to it still. Love it.

  • Thank you so much! Really glad you like it :)
