There’s more white in the snow photo, but it doesn’t seem quite as white as the flower. There’s also the contrast between winter and the tropical hot house conditions in which the flower lives. The flower photo was taken at the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco.

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
