Purple Petunia in a Copper Drop Shadow Frame


Himalayan Flower #7 – Purple Petunia

Shadowbox series – II

What does a Petunia remind you of?
An umbrella? A funnel? Harry Potter?

For me, it’s Nightfall.

It reminds me of the dark, freezing and silent nights I spent in my sleeping bag in the Himalayas. The glacial winds dragging the temperature down to a – 11, the wetness of the ice on the tent and the cloud of white I could see every time I exhaled the icy air from my lungs. It was those moments that tested our minds and bodies. I had 5 layers on at night, but the basecamp was between 2 mountains and the winds at night were harsh.
I waited for the Sun every morning like it was my lifeline. Well, it was.
The Petunias were blooming in plenty by the second basecamp. At 10,000ft, you’ll see them growing through cracks, rocks and meadows. So I could take the fallen ones as and when we ascended.

The Petunia symbolises the desire to spend more time with a loved one who’s company you enjoy very much. For me, it was the Sun.
