White Christmas

Martha R. Mazon level-classic December 15, 2014

So beautiful, Monnie! We have pots of these at work and each time I pass them I think how I need to find some to bring home for photographs. You did a wonderful job capturing the lovely, subtle gradations of color and tone. #1600575

I heard that they turn red by putting them in the closet away from light. Do I have that backwards? This is very beautiful and well done. Merry Christmas Monnie! #11207551

Looks like we both have a passion for flowers & the digital darkroom Kaleidoscope filter. This is not an easy flower to capture especially a white one. Good job!!! #11256491

I don't see many white poinsettias around here (and rarely take photos of white flowers in any case), but this one stood out. From the visitor center at Mill Creek Park. Have a great Monday, everyone!
