I found this unusual flower on a trip to Sri Lanka where the hotel grounds were scattered with them. After some research I discovered they are from the tree 'barringtonia racemosa', otherwise known as the 'powder puff tree'. They really do look like exquisite little powder puffs - dreamy, light and graceful. I love the way the festive shocks of vibrant pink and gold contrast against the creamy white strands. They look so elegant and otherworldly here - like floating sea anemones, or delicately unravelling strands of silk - against the rustic earthy- grey concrete wall. I overlaid textures of crumbling Sri Lankan walls to the image to give added character.
