Award Winner | Photo of the Day | December 17, 2011
What I like the most about this picture, taken in Tapalpa, Mexico, is the purple grayish sky at the back. A big storm was coming and the wind was blowing hard, I believe this is what made these flowers look more beautiful and purple-er than ever. I promise they don´t look this alive in a sunny clear day.
