Description

Magnolia grandiflora, commonly known as the southern magnolia. It is a large, striking, evergreen tree with large white, fragrant flowers up to 30 cm (12 in) in diameter. The tree is a nocturnal bloomer and the blooms only last one day. This tree lives across the street from my home. I watched while the bud developed and planned to shoot it on the night it bloomed. I used two external light sources. One for the backlighting and the other to fill the interior.
