2011, Day 239 - Reaching

Who doesn't enjoy pictures of flowers?  Their vibrance attracts the eye and transience demands appreciation while they last.  This point of view is one of my favorites when photographing flowers, the perspective is one we don't often get to enjoy.  If plants were castles then the flowers are their towers reaching towards the sun and proclaiming their glory while ensuring a secure future.  Plus, to get this angle I had to lay in the grass and what could be more evocative of summer than lounging in the grass and soaking up the warming rays of the sun?
