An illuminated flower in Ireland – one of the first shots of mine that got me into photography. It was a sunny day, only the background is slightly edited. I love the different shades here, they add a mysterious character to the flower.

It reminds me of the dependency of mankind on light. And it’s influence is often underestimated. Especially at this time of the year when we crave for spring: Who doesn’t feel better on the first days of sunshine? Our mood often depends on light, on its intensity, its position and its colour (warm or cold).
