This is another new blossom on my neighbor’s gorgeous magnolia tree, in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The tree had just bloomed this week and the short-lived beauty will be fading very quickly. This shot was taken at sunset.
This photo was taken on April 19th, in the spring of 2009. It was shot “hand-held” (on a ladder) with a Canon EOS 10D with a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro prime lens. The shutter speed was 1/500th sec at f/5.6, no flash. The camera’s ISO was set to 400.
Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
