The amaryllis just has to be among the most awesome flower blossoms!
The form, the sweeping lines, not to mention the size of the blooms, are all quite spectacular. What I like about this one, that just bloomed within the past few days, is the color. The deep red is amazing. And when the sun shone through the back of it this morning … well, it was a serious photo op.
I published a post a while ago about photographing red flowers, and the difficulty the sensors in digital cameras have with rendering the color red so that it is what we see. Sometimes it’s necessary to adjust the color in photoshop or some other photo editing software. However, in this photo it wasn’t necessary. This is straight off the camera, and only resized for web display.
