This is an amaryllis blooming.  It caught the afternoon light just perfect.  This is one of my favorite photos that I have taken.

  1. Your photo is gorgeous! It lighting is perfect, picking out the stamens and making the petals glow.

  2. Very interesting lighting! Good luck with the contest.

  3. That is a stunning photo. I have a similar one of orange lilies, but I didn’t pick it for the contest. Maybe I should have. . .

    Good luck.

  4. A beautiful photo that will give the rest of us a run for the money, or rather a run for the recognition.

  5. Thank you heather and Les. I appreciate your encouragement.
