The first pure white bloom from a young Magnolia tree I planted 2 years ago. It opened as a lovely welcome the day after we arrived back here This is the state flower of Mississippi. When I first planted this tree it was only 4 ft tall, now, after only 2 years it is 15 ft high. The blooms can get really big, this one being 10 inches across. So I thought I would post it just to say hello from Mississippi to everyone on EPHOTOZINE.

This is straight from camera, nothing done except to crop and frame it.

I hope y'all enjoy its beauty and simplicity.

It's sunny back home here in Scotland.
Hope you're enjoying Mississippi.
Your magnolia is beautiful - I'm constantly amazed at how lovely white
flower images can be as I always crave colour.
Your framing works well with this image.

Thank you all for your comments. Am glad it is finally sunny in Scotland. I took all the rotten weather with me when I left and dumped it in the middle of the Atlantic. I should have kept some as we are needing rain in MS.

White flowers are notoriously difficult to photograph but you have done a wonderful job here, and presented it beautifully.

Thanks to everyone for their votes and comments. I have had great fun playing with my husbands new camera. He has demanded it back now he sees the images I have been getting from it GrinGrin. These Fuji bridge cameras are realy very good.
