Artist's Description

This is a shot of my beautiful dandelion. I sprayed it with water to enhance its appearance. I wanted to show the detail in this amazing weed which we don’t even cast a second glance at. It has a spectacular purple flower, shown opposite. It took me 15months to find the name of this wonderful plant. I used my Kodak Z8612IS camera for the original shot. Thanks for visiting, cheers- Valerie
