16/365 This one, definitely this one... I think

It was going to be an urban scene, then a rustic fence post, but then I took advantage of a brief spell of weak winter sunshine to catch the light on a cyclamen in the conservatory and wrestled the pop-up backdrop into the shot to isolate the bloom. I went into Derby this morning (downtown to you Stateside folks!) to run an errand and took my camera, but it was yet another grey day and the city was grey to match. So I stopped at the park on the way home and shot some ivy on a rustic fence. Then, this afternoon the sun made an effort, and so I had to choose from the resulting shots which was really hard! I love the texture of the stem, the arrangement of the overlapping sepals, the amazingly fine texture in the petals and the most delicate hint of colour. The leaves are amazing too, but I just can't seem to capture the silvery markings.
