A splash of colour on a wet, gloomy day

pink and white mini gerbera
After a delightful run of unseasonably warm autumnal weather, winter has arrived in Sydney with a steady drizzle and dropping temperatures. I stopped at a local greengrocer on the way home and saw these small gerberas. They are only a few centimetres across but their cheerful pink-and-white exuberance was a lovely sight on a winter evening, when the sun has set by 5pm. Isn’t it interesting how enormous this little flower appears when shot as a macro?

    • Yes, we’ve been a while without real rain. I wished for my camera today — I walk along Martin Place from George St to the train station, and the lights of Vivid reflecting in the shining wet pavement were wonderful, if not particularly cheery.
