Last weekend my son dropped in for the day to ‘hang out’ with us. I was so delighted when he got out of the car with this beautiful bunch of mixed Camelias in his hand. He picked them from his garden before leaving. He was an amazing collection of Camelias growing, and at this time of year they’re in flower. A beautiful feast for the eyes.

Equipment: Canon 40D, Canon 100mm Macro f2.8L USM lens, De-saturated in Lightroom 2 and an overlay added in PS CS3.
