"Summer Elements"

“I think it's always sad to see the pohutukawa flowers falling after their short display, but it’s amazing what beauty you can discover when you look a little closer with a macro lens, even when their blooms have collapsed. The fine grains of silica sand at Otama beach provided a fitting backdrop for this still-life composition, the sands here are like fine crystals & squeak when you rub your feet!”
