Pattern and light work well in place of colour. This is beautiful.

The variations on the petals lend themselves to black and white. I like this shot so much.

Really nice shot--hope you are enjoying your new camera and it is not too hard to learn to use. I am so amazed at the quality and "perfectness" of the pictures of so many bloggers. Have a great week. Mickie :)

Talmente belli che il colore non ne cambia la loro bellezza.
Un caro saluto,
