In general relativity, an event horizon is a boundary in spacetime beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer. In layman's terms it is defined as "the point of no return" i.e. the point at which the gravitational pull becomes so great as to make escape impossible. The most common case of an event horizon is that surrounding a black hole. Light emitted from beyond the horizon can never reach the observer. Likewise, any object approaching the horizon from the observer's side appears to slow down and never quite pass through the horizon, with its image becoming more and more redshifted as time elapses. The traveling object, however, experiences no strange effects and does, in fact, pass through the horizon in a finite amount of proper time.

Thanks Monica! The title: I thought it looked looked like the edge of a black hole with things being sucked in. But then again, I have a bit of an imagination.

Beautifully composed, Tom! I love the soft processing and that flower's stunning colour !!

Thanks so much Chris. It was a "weed" growing in the back yard. Its just another lesson for me how perspective changes how you look at everything. A weed is just a label and everything can be beautiful.
