Best Wishes for the holiday season!


I've been fascinated the last three weeks watching and snapping pictures of three Amaryllis plants as they budded into bloom and went through the cycle of life. What surprised me most was that multiple flowers bloomed out of one stock.

All of these images were taken with natural light as the plants sat on a window sill. Most were taken with South facing morning light.

One of my favorites ... I've named it "The good light."


This is a straight-on shot showing the four blossoms at 90 degrees from each other:

I've named this shot "Edges".


Here's a view looking from the side:

Near the end, the blossoms starts to shrivel and turns from red to purple:


My favorite of the series:

Again, best wishes for a happy holiday season. May it bring you good cheer, health, and prosperity for the new year!

Thank you, as always, for taking the time to look and comment.
