While we were away this past weekend our amaryllis bloomed! Boy! Did it bloom! There are currently three large flowers and one or two more on the way. My mother-in-law has a similar one that is just a couple of days behind ours. I took a few quick shots the other day – nothing impressive. Then this evening I noticed how the front porch light lit the flower against the dark background. I liked the look so I put the camera on the tripod and took some night shots of it. This is lit only by our front porch light and is a 13-second exposure.

Many things are going on these days. I have photos to share on this blog but haven’t had the chance to actually post them lately. Here’s a quickie. We have three lemon trees that are still fairly small. One died this past year, one has an infection, but the third is thriving. I spent a little while photographing the very fragrant blossoms today. I wanted practice using the camera I’ve rented for the week – a Canon Rebel T2i.
Update – I’ve since learned that this was our orange tree that I was shooting, not the lemon tree. No wonder I liked the scent of the blossoms so much!
