Columbines are such beautiful and graceful flowers. I decided that the best way to show this flower off, was to take the liberty and surround it in black, to get a glimpse of it’s incredible and extraordinary beauty. The petals and insides seem so delicate. Yet, they hold up during strong rains and keep their blossoms totally intact. Graceful, stunning and impressive, they make me think of how we, as human beings, should also be!
