Coming up daisies

I was attracted to this scene first by the daisies in the sunlight. I don't usually shoot photos in the middle of the day unless it's overcast, but these flowers were just begging for it. Then there was the surroundings. Steep rocky shoreline, the wind, the waves. A picture not just of surviving, but thriving.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.”

Matthew 6:25-29

A very nice photo. It has a soft feel, and the blue sky and ocean in the background enhance it beautifully.
