About This Image

This is the centre of one of the Magnolias featured in Meridianz gallery. They are so pretty that we are making the most of photographing them. I found these centres to be very unusual.

Thanks Talsi for your wonderful comment. I'm quite fond of this photo myself. I think its the colours and the softness that get me. Funny thing is that I had looked at these flowers many times but never noticed the stripes until I photographed it up close.

Thanks Mel and Shirree. Yes, candy was the thought that came into my head also. Thanks for having such beautiful flowers in your garden to photograph.

This is such a beautiful shot Lurene. It is so sharp, and I know how hard it is to get enough light without shadowing. I know what you mean when you say the centre looks like you could eat it - they look like some sort of candy. Mel, Kim was just saying today that he thought magnolia centres reminded him of sea anemone.

I have to say this photo is brilliant Lulu. I love Magnolia's and I have loved seeing your's and Shirrees photo's - they are all different and lovely. I have seen so many in flower lately. I miss my big old Florida magnolia even more now (at the old house). I think the centre (anthers??) look like a sea anemone - doesn't anyone agree?

Thanks KM, Tania and Alandra for your lovely positive comments. I have more flower close-ups that I am going to upload sometime soon so keep your eyes out on my gallery. Karen, I have a white magnolia too but its not in flower yet. This variety is so beautiful. This centre looks like you could almost eat it. I was extremely proud of this one as it needed no editing.

Lulu you have got the talent for Macros well done they are not easy. Did you use a tripod or is the camera hand held. I love the center of this Magnolia. Mum has got a wine coloured Magnolia in her front garden, if you want to photograph different ones. The colour start of deep and fades to a pinky cream.
