Madagasikara by Majnouna Madagasikara by Majnouna
Poinsettias grow everywhere in Madagascar. They are actual trees with these bright red leaves (the flowers are actually the tiny yellow things at the centre of these crowns of leaves). The locals call them Madagasikara, just like their island....

I wanted to capture the luminescence of the leaves against the sky, a point of view we don't often have with poinsettias despite their common-ness around Christmas time! The light didn't quite come out as it was, but the colours are still stunning. It was a good opportunity to try a square composition :)

(I apologise for not thanking everyone for favs individually – it's getting hard to manage. So thank you all in advance!)
