Zoltán Gergely Nagy - Sunset with dog’s tooth violet


Together with the setting sun, these flowers close their petals every night and then open them up again as the sun rises in the mornings.
On this particular day last year, clouds obstructed the afternoon sun and the violet started to close up early, hoping for a lot more sunshine in the days to come.
