Never let be said Camellias can’t take a punch.  Down for a mandatory 8 count after a killer frost blanketed the farm this past weekend,  they’re back in the ring.  Sort of a floral rope a dope.  This closed bloom caught my eye in the waning light of the late afternoon.

The closed center coupled with the variations  of pink  lend a little winter elegance to an otherwise pretty drab time of year.   I shot this with the workhorse of my bag,  a Nikon 18-200mm which pretty much lives on the new D7K Camera.  Unlike the full frame 28-200 which stays with my F100,  this digital or DX lens allows very close work even at the extreme focal length.  If I could have only one lens on a digital camera, that would be it.  See you next time on most of this same blog.
