pink sasanqua camellia.2wf.jpg

The unremitting diet of close focus images continues. I had gone on a long mountain walk with a friend
this morning, during which I had expected to get some pictures of spectacular mountain scenery.
Indeed the track took us past some of the finest potential landscapes in the Blue Mountains. Alas
it rained the entire time and almost all of the view was obscured by thick fog. There was a good
chance of ruining my camera ... forget it.

Outside our dining room there is this wonderful sasanqua camellia bush. I selected a blossom and
brought a little bit of the rain inside for this image.

An extraordinarily fine close up, and I am amused by how and why you got it. V

Very good, and somehow even better for being close-by.

I like the close-ups !
Especially the colour in this flower, and the rain drops.
