52 Colours - #34 - Mauve

I wanted to do a quick shot for this weeks colour that Luna gave us ... MAUVE ...
cause my mind was totally blank on that one ...
QUICK !!! shot ... took me AGES !!! ...
cause I tried SHADOWS on the firestorm viewer I had just installed yesterday ...
apart from that viewer 2 look that I dislike so much, it works quite fine and fast for me and my lil cute netbook ;-)
But after enabling high graphics + shaddows and such ... it was just like ...
lil move ... waiting ... waiting ... lil move ... waiting ... risking a snapshot ... waiting ... waiting ... darn ... eyes closed ... next try ... waiting ... waiting ... waiting ... etc.
guess I won't do that too often ;-) ...
But I like tonight's pic tho ...

and I like this Mauve poem I found ... enjoy ;-)

Mauve Desert Rose
by Zahhar

here sprouted most unusually
from traveling seed
amid faint shade
of standing rock

the scorching sun blazed brilliantly
lands stretching arid
to horizon
dismal expanse
my home

somewhere beneath the dry cracked ground
were my roots allayed
and so i grew

weary travelers one by one
in times preceding
have ventured past
and still unseen
my life

amid drear desolation vast
days long scalding dread
nights freezing pain
my heart took shape

long seasons in succession passed
moon cycles swimming
resilience strong
through withered look
formed true

endlessly looking unto sky
forever reaching
comfort brooded
brewing slowly
soft peace

in great expanse of nothingness
my buds developed
and so they bloomed
for none to see
save god

next week it's Electric Blue which looks like Sky Blue to me ... lol ...
*sigh* ... hope we will get crazy colours like
Purple Pizzazz ... Razzmatazz ... Wisteria ... Outer Space ... Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown ... inch worm ...
one day ;-)

Hey you have already got the hang of firestorm better than I do, even if it was lagrific. You look fantastic.

You'll get shadow-addicted soon enough, trust me! *grins* And yeah, get the pic exactly to the angle and frame you want before putting them on, makes things easier. Love the result!
