Purity!

Purity!

One from our garden; Magnolia grandiflora 'goliath', in summer it puts on the most magnificent display of delightful lemon-scented flowers. You have to be quite patient to catch one looking as pristine as this because as soon as they open fully, degradation sets in, the stamen fall off and these huge white petals soon fade to a mucky brown colour. Taken with a Canon 350D and Tamron SP90 macro lens.
