Top Shot: When Spring Met Summer | Photograph by Maximiliaan Van Es (@_maximiliaan_)
“My photo series ‘When Spring Met Summer’ shows the transition between spring and summer, when flowers fully bloom and life is a little more colorful. It shows the evolutionary path of a flower from its beginning stage of a bud to a mature flower,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Maximiliaan Van Es. “The photo series also encompasses a degree of romanticism whereby there is a deep connection between man and nature, where their dependence on each other is fragile but undeniably essential.” This photo was selected for the June 21, 2018 Daily Dozen.
