There is a lovely ancient, fossilized feeling about this as though it has been long undiscovered.

Love the contrasting greens in the background...and again - the shape and curve and how it plays out in the frame is exquisite!

Wow! Even without the caption, the emotional energy comes through. I can't recall a work of yours that is so successful at conveying that raw emotion -- true artistry, because you accomplish it through the combination of subject, composition, and intentional mix of textures.

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

Wonderful shot...I can image that the background texture is part of a storm-like winter environment.
Not surprising that he is bent.

@DULCIE: Thanks, Dulcie. That is what I was trying to capture with the textures.

Yeah, I guess y'all are getting quite sick of the cold and snow! A lovely interpretation, Anita.

26 Jan 2011 4:06am

@Barbara Kile: Well, I'm not complaining, but I do find myself drooping a bit in the winter. :-)

Jim Wilson from Malvern, Pennsylvania, United States

Love the composition, Anita. As always, lovely processing too.

Came here after reading your post at Vision and Verb, Anita. I have to say that your photographs are probably the most original I have seen of flowers and plants. The textures are luxurious and...well, I'm not knowledgable enough photography to comment sensiblly about your techniques, but the end result is absolutely gorgeous.
