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.
