I've always been wierdly fascinated by cracked mud... which is a wierd thing to admit but yeah. lol. This is really great. I really appreciate photography that is mostly/totally natural elements... this has the "feel" of abstract art photography but the connective value of nature photography. *loves* Thanks for sharing this.
hmmm its hard to explain what it is about this photo that appeals to me. The colors are nice...but i would have to say it goes much deeper...i look at the shot and my heart strings are pulled abit. The fact that the mud is already so dead and cracked and grey..and the petals. lively and blood read against the drap color. The sad irony will be...the petals will now shrivel and die and add the the dead mud.
