Pink Magnolia

I expect to be back in about a week, but on a much more limited basis, especially for commenting and responding. Thanks for your concern.

NIKON D700 1/1250 second F/4.5 ISO 800 150 mm (35mm equiv.)

Dulcie from Danville, CA, United States

This is an electric image with vibrant color.
You have caught an early stage of this flower's opening show !
So glad to see an image from you.
I'm sure you'll find a new way to "BE" on the photo blog that will not be draining or taxing.
It seems to me that participating with the AM3 family should be satisfying, invigorating, and/or inspiring.
See you when you are ready....Best, Dulcie

A really good one. Love the colors n a bit of white on the inside of the petals helped to balance things up, i think

I have one thing that I have to report. I saw the movie "Departures" today. I was moved. It's a good movie. Thank you.

Your flowers are exquisite, Jack. You don't just take photos of flowers--you breathe life into them with your superb compositions, lush renderings and attention to detail.

As long as there are pictures, it is still a bit of your presence. Sometimes I know that a pause is needed. I hope you are well, but if you left a long time, I lose a friend indeed! Very soon Jack.

Today I returned to watch ... I found your beautiful magnolia. I note with disappointment that no more photos of my friend Jack!

A beautiful image with which to come back, Jack. Daily posting is overrated and spreading yourself thin to respond and reciprocate is also overrated. Taking care of oneself and one's family is much more important. I hope you are well.
