Pure White Magnolia Flowers

This magnolia tree had a very low-hanging branch with large flower heads on it. I took the opportunity to take some close-up shots with my cellphone camera. Usually the blooms would be up too high for me to do this. The petals were beautifully white and I thought the camera would probably get it wrong and I’d end up with dingy grey or over-exposed white. To my surprise they turned out almost as pure in their whiteness as they really were! Made me very happy 🙂

Taken on a beautifully fine afternoon at Dunedin Botanic Garden, New Zealand on Wed 4 October.

    1. I was really lucky with these because I spotted them in a darker, sheltered spot and the branch hung down really low. The flowers were in perfect condition and drop-dead gorgeous. Couldn’t believe my luck!
