in the summer heat!
I encountered this storm damaged flower on the coastal heath at Port Macquarie on one of my early morning walks.
Captured at 1/10th second f16.0 and ISO-640, it was just after sunrise and the flower was about to open up for the day!

    As I watch the snow come down and brace for sub zero wind chills it does my heart good to see a flower ready to bloom!

Love the colors and details!! Well done!!

I'm pretty sure there's at least 6 inches of snow outside today, and the temperature is headed to sub-zero over the next couple of days. This beauty literally warms my heart (now if you just could do something for my feet...)

Very lovely John, good to see you're getting rain, its quite parched up here - had nearly 5 inches in early December, but with our temps soaring, it soon dried out.

Hi Johnny, so glad to see this beautiful summer image, does a body good!!
Especially as temps are sitting at -20c at 4pm here, and saying it's to drop to around -30 tonight, that's without wind chill.
