Strelitzia

What would an orange week be without some orange flowers? During winter here in South Africa, most of the winter flowering plants are orange! Been playing with arty effects in the background.
Such a striking colour!

Interesting about most of your winter flowers being orange. This one's definitely a good choice for your color theme this week.

And yes, I'm aiming to get involved with the shapes B&W challenge.

I love these flowers Debs, and this is a lovely shot of a stunning flower. Ours are sulking over winter, but will brighten up when the weather warms up.

@newbank Thank you, completely unexpected that's for sure!

Hope its encouraged you! Well deserved

@newbank Do you know it has. Every time I feel a bit disheartened about continuing, then something like this happens and it all seems doable. Like the time you threw me a party, that was a great moment and so motivating...
