Digging back in my archives for something to post again. This Magnolia grows on the border between my front garden and my neighbour's. The flowers never seem to last very long, but in the right light they can be really gorgeous.

A stunning capture Keith! My neighbour also has a magnolia and I agree, the flowers don't last long enough. I pass a lot of them with unusual colours on my weekly trips to Yeovil, but unfortunately not really possible to stop...I wouldn't be very popular if I did ;-))

A magnificent bloom in the centre and wonderful light. I live in a magnolia free zone which is a pity as they are so beautiful. I don't I've seen any in Falkland. Perhaps there are some in the palace gardens but they are not open until Easter.

Oh KEITH! This is GRAND!! I have taken lots of pictures of magnolias but none like this. The delicate beauty and details are so pretty. It resembles a flying bird actually! :) Wonderful natural framing and nice flower bokeh too. :)

I'm glad you enjoyed my last presentation--that lake was really special and frankly, I couldn't do it proper justice. It's the sort of place you'd need to spend all day studying and taking many pictures everywhere you went. So this is just one little part but I did capture a bit of the grandeur of this place. Also, it made me happy that you liked the forest pano. I did take a bunch of forest shots but this did the job for showing what it was like. :) And also, ty for the nod to my mono boat shots, they are always fun to do...one of them was a selective color, with only the Canada flag in red! :)

I hope you're healing up well...I expect you're probably still a bit uncomfortable. :( Well, let's hope you're fit as a fiddle soon! :)
