Day 103 of my 365 Photo Challenge.
I just love to photograph flowers. They are a wonder of nature. So diverse, no two are alike, and one is more beautiful than the other. Some bloom wild, others were planted for a specific purpose.
But in the end, all flowers have one thing in common, they enrich our lives with cheerfulness, bliss and joy!
I discovered this specimen of a lily on my way home from a photo tour to the nearby fields. It stood all alone in a garden near the road.
I immediately stopped with my bike and took my Nikkor 200-500mm F5.6 VR and photographed it freehand. I was lucky that the rising sun was at the ideal angle at Zenit and illuminated the flower fantastically.
Especially the slight shadow cast gives the picture the necessary depth.
I hope you like the photo as well!
