I was so captivated by the delicate beauty of this image that I almost didn’t notice the hand is wearing a latex exam glove! And, I know there is some kind of selective color filter on this image, but it really is very subtle, and I think that makes the composition just that much more powerful. The color (or relative absence thereof,) along with the ice on the flower, really does a lot to point out the fragility of life and beauty. Well done indeed to the photographer, Basheer Tome, and thanks for publishing under creative commons! The world needs more stuff like this.
