Southern Magnolia

For as long as I have been photographing, I have raised my camera to photograph the Southern Magnolia in springtime. Starting in April, I gaze at the tightly wrapped buds on these enormous trees and anxiously await the petals to unfurl to display the most seductive, beautiful flowers I have ever seen. The smell is intoxicating. The dazzling display of flowers is almost always out of reach, but this year I spotted the giant Magnolia down the street whose branches hover just above the ground. I have been eying the buds that dot these low branches and yesterday evening I was blessed with the opportunity to create this photograph.
