Difficult to find flowers still blooming late in summer, other than these "wild sunflowers", aka Topinambur.

I was attracted by the backlit structure, and only spotted the dew drops when I came closer.

Large view.

Thanks for the visit, have a great day.

Beautifully done Sinuhe.  Love the threesome and placement.  A lovely find in gorgeous light.  The large view shows off the water drops nicely.
Make your life spectacular!

A great idea, well taken and presented, Sinuhe. The backlit flowers do indeed make a beautiful image with the added interest of the dark stems and dew drops.

Very pleasing composition with the trio plus one little bud (?). The water drops are a nice element, adding interest and variety. Very well done!

Beautiful backlit scene and the trio creating some form of symmetry in the frame. Excellent.
