Artist's Description

My mother’s house on the northern California coast had a large tree at the southeast corner. The tree was so large, and grew so well, it had to be cut back on a regular basis to protect the house’s roof. And from January through March it was covered with these large pink blossoms that German botanist Engelbert Kämpfer called the Japanese Rose. Today, we know it as the Camellia. a flower almost synonomous with the American South. We had magnolias growing in the area as well, but if I were to describe my southern belle mother, she was more a Steel Camellia.

Taken March 11th, 2007 in Smith River, Del Norte County, California, USA.

Nikon D80 dslr, Sigma 50 mm prime lens. ISO 1600, f /11, 1/500th second. Shot as a JPG, finished in Lightroom Classic and Photoshop CC 2020
