Liquid Diamonds And Gold Leaf On Green Velvet - IMRAN™, originally uploaded by ImranAnwar.
Although it was nearly mid-day on June 15th, 2010, the bright almost-Noon sun above had not yet managed to sizzle off the moisture from early morning's dew drops on these flowers at the entrance near my home.
The Nikon D300 did a great job capturing what caught my eye in the first place... the needle sharp reflections of moisture were shining like tiny crystals and diamonds embedded in petals that looked like pure Gold Leaf, positively glowing above the bokeh background of dark leaves, like a fine jeweler's velvet green display to melt a viewer's heart and turn it to solid resolve of a buyer.
A golden moment, a jewel in time, in every sense of the word. What do you think?
