Bought for £2.00 in a garden centre sale in early January, this Amaryllis has just flowered in the last two days.

My thanks to all who visited the Canine Capers Sequence and for the comments left.

a stunning flower. You have captured the whites and all those hair fine streaks so well. I like the inclusion of the 'backside' with all the fine pastel echo of the main flower.

Like the markings Ronnie.
A long lasting £2.00 spent,if you bought it in January.
I spent £2.00 this afternoon on two Greggs sausage rolls and a doughnut,
and it only lasted me 5 minutes !!

This is not only great value it is a miracle. The flower in it's self and the colours.
Then of course there is the expertise in the capture. Truly quite lovely……….

I agree with the others - £2 well spent.

The colours are a delight and you have achieved front to back sharpness. The inclusion of the rear of the second flower adds interest and has resulted in a very pleasing composition. Well presented as always.
My wife received some flowers recently (not from me) and I had a go at photographing some of them. The experience has brought home how much technique and patience is involved.
