The Passion Flower

The Passion Flower is one of the most exotic looking plants you will find in the woods, and along roadsides, in the south. “La Flor de las cinco Llagas" or the ‘The Flower With The Five Wounds,’ as it was known by seventeenth century Spanish missionaries in South America, was used by them to teach the story of the crucifixion (or Passion) of Christ to the South American indigenous peoples.

I think the overcast day's even lighting probably helped a lot as well. Also, the editing features of the iPhone apps, TiltShiftGenerator and Photogene are amazing.
