Impressions

Mysterious and enticing
We are drawn into a world of muted colours

Soft, dreamlike shapes take form

Like folds of flowing satin

Could there be a pearl hidden within?

So many frills and curves

in a beautiful Amaryllis

  1. So good to see you post with such lovely abstracts Sandra. I wish I had taken some images of my Amaryllis when it bloomed last month and also wish I had gotten another bulb for blooming this month. Next year I will. Such a pretty color and looks like the color I had in Dec. All are really lovely, and those last two are truly wonderful and would look great on a wall really large print.

    1. Thank you, Barbara. After the pink Amaryllis, I now have a deep red one blooming eight beautiful flowers. They do give such pleasure during our winter months!

  2. Hi Sandra, I agree with Barbara these are so lovely and would make gorgeous prints. I have an Amaryllis that a friend gave me that is just getting ready to bloom and I am very excited to be able to photograph it in all it's glory. It's red so I image it will be gorgeous.

    1. Amaryllis are beautiful plants and I tend to get one or two each winter for them to bloom at different times.

  3. This flower reflects so much of you..the soft pinks and greens with that soft white. A wonderful post.

  9. You make me excited for mine to bloom! I like the soft pink coloring of yours. It reminds me of spring. I also have a narcissus bulb that is steadily growing. I like to think of them blooming with the snow still falling outside.
