  1. An enchanting presentation Lars, nice to see the subdued lighting with focus on the middle of the flower with its intriguing form - so often these are presented in bright sunlight. Posted 11 months ago
    1. Thanks, Ruth - you know I love it more dark :) But aside from this personal affinity, I feel the floral world is presented technically much better with low key palettes. Having a sense of lighting and darker backgrounds means the advantage of refraining from boosting colors, like so usual for other floral photographers. Posted 11 months ago

''Dimorphotheca ecklonis'' or ''Osteospermum'', (Cape marguerite, Van Staden's river daisy, Sundays river daisy, white daisy bush, blue-and-white daisy bush, star of the veldt) is an ornamental plant. A native plant of South Africa, this plant is now regarded as a weed in parts of Australia, particularly Victoria and Western Australia.
