I am just back home from a few days away in France and Belgium where, amongst other things, I was working on my Remembrance Image Project. The weather was warm and generally dry, with at least one day of glorious sunshine, and there was plenty of colour from both the autumn-flowering plants, and the leaves slowly turning and falling.
Today’s picture continues that theme, though with a bit of spring colour. I don’t do as much close-up or macro photography as I would like to, but I loved the plump fullness of this flower head, the delicate crests of the petals’ edges which look almost as if they have been nibbled into shape, and the little burst of yellow and vermilion in the centre. Hopefully a cheering image as the warm colours of autumn pass into the chill of winter.
