Another Amaryllis image from the bouquet send by my daughter for Christmas.
Thank you all for the wonderful response to the Red Amaryllis and special thanks to
Trev and digital-boi for User Awards - very nice Christmas presents.
Hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoying a bit of relaxation today.
I certainly am after having sixteen for dinner!

sixteen what for dinner? Chocolates or mince pies?? Wink

Another great photo Kate, I just wonder if it may look a tad better if you darkened down the diagonal green highlight. It's a bit distracting.

A wonderfully colourful and warming photograph Kate.

Remember: "Today is about rest and recuperation, and a time to reflect and attempt to eradicate the guilt following our recent spate of over indulgence?"

What a stunning colour, Kate, for me, so much more pleasing that the red variety. Very well captured and presented, but I do agree with Adrian, the stem needs toning down a tad. Carol
