Double Amaryllis Elvas, photographed indoors but backlit by the sun: as the stem came out rather muddy, I decided to dispense with it's presence.

My thanks to all who commented on Working Parts, and with special thanks to Peter {jaktis} for his User Award for my Crystal Rose image.

The backlighting works so well here Ronnie have you tried to replicate this with an off camera flash gun and orange gel, one to try for dark dreary days ahead.
