Saturday was my birthday.  On Sunday my family took me out to lunch and for a few photography adventures on some back roads. They know me so well :o). In between adventures, we stopped at the house to refuel and I noticed there was one purple tulip blooming. The sun light was shining through the petals and I loved how it looked as though it was lit from within.

Settings: ISO 200, 50mm, ss1/500, f/4.0 (sunlight wb)
"Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself." - Annie Leibovitz
