Arium Lily

By far one of my favourite flowers is the Arium Lily. The grow very much wild in the Tsitsikamma forest because of the high rainfall and lot of water there. Some of the are huge compared to those you see in people's gardens. When I used to be a tourist guide I got to visit the Tsitsikamma very often, but alas I haven't been for a while. This pic I took on the Mouth Trail in the Tsitsikamma National Park next to a little stream and waterfall. I just thought the background went very well with the flower.

  1. Oh, this is lovely! You are very good at this type of capture - you did one a while back with a flower in the foreground and a lighthouse (I think?) in the background - very nicely done!
