Cosmos on White Background

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 26 August 2008 in Plant & Nature.

I'm celebrating my 60th birthday with this Cosmos. My husband, 19 year-old son and I celebrated on Saturday with a hike, dinner at home, and a board game. What fun! I'm thrilled to turn 60.

Happy birthday, Anita ... what a lovely way to celebrate! The combination of deep, deep red and yellow in this pic makes me weak in the knees ... so beautiful! And the little bud just moves the image into the stratosphere for me.

It's so terrific (and inspiring) that you're exploring photography so seriously at this most wonderful time of life!
