A small group of pasqueflowers (Pulsatilla sp.), before sunrise with the city lights of Vienna behind them. One of my major goals in that year, was to use the artificial lights of a city in the background, to get the bokeh circles so big, that they look a bit like they belong to the wildflower. I was lucky to have had a calm morning, so I could use a long exposure time, on that wonderfully lit day.
