Finally a flower image ;-) This one was taken on Madeira, the "Flower Island". We've been there in May 2007 and enjoyed it a lot, although it rained most of the time. And indeed it is an Island full of flowers, esp. in the spring season. When hiking along the Levadas (historic irrigation channels) you can find plants and flowers in all colors and shapes. Very interesting and picturesque, a great place for any flower photographer.
This little gem was near a trail we walked some day. It was really a small flower and this photo is taken with the Macro mode of my Sigma 17-70 lens. The drops and the colors purple and green looks really good. I wish I could have used my tripod, but as usual there's not much time when hiking with other people. Nevertheless I'm happy with the image, it's a good reminder of the beauty of Madeira.
