The beautiful lilac flower in this fine art flower photograph is a clover flower. An alternative name for it is trefoil. It is quite common around the world. This particular close-up of a clover flower was captured on a sunny summer day in July somewhere in Switzerland. The clover flower is soaking up the sun. Hence the title. A shallow depth of field gives the flower photograph a dreamy look and feel. Also, the lilac of the flower stands out nicely against the green background as a result of it.
