Winter Sunflower

For the Flash of Red where we are to direct our attention to one of Anne's favorite compositional elements- texture. Black and white photography loves texture because of its great ability to emphasize contrast and contrast is what makes us see a 3D texture on a 2D picture plane.
The birds have pretty much picked this clean, but it remains as part of our winter garden landscape.
Also for the 52 week challenge where we are to fill the frame - no background. Well ... I do have a wee bit of background but only so that the lovely leaves will be seen. (I have never met a rule that wasn't meant to be broken) lol!
great macro shot, wendy. aces!
