Pink Cyclamen . . . .

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 10 January 2013 in Plant & Nature.

Sorry to show so many Cyclamen. I haven't had a chance to take any photos in about a week, and am reworking some old images.
My son just graduated from college and has moved home while he searches for a job. I'm enjoying his company so very much!

There is a lovely glow in this image, with twisting senuous shapes that draw the eye into and through the image. I love the repetition of the magenta color in the textured corners. There is a sense of dancing and motion, as if the wind is blowing.
