Special in white #2

And so it is only fitting to end off the week with a flower image. One of these find days this shrub will be back in bloom again, and no doubt offer up some more delectable specimens. It was a difficult choice for me as to which I would enter for the competition - there were two that were very similar, and this one lost out. My choice for submission was this one.

I have really enjoyed sharing all these old images with you, and am most grateful for all the visits and comments you have made along the way. As mentioned yesterday, will have a reduced presence on Aminus3 from next week in an attempt to keep the standard of image at a reasonable level.

@Hiro: Thanks Hiro - it's very simple stuff. Basically three desk lamps and some diffusing material. You can have a look at my setup here.
