Phoneography Challenge ~ Nature in the Midwest

minnesota11final

The recent trip I took back to a small part of Minnesota and Wisconsin filled my eyes with the beauty of nature there. Maybe everyday sights to some, but completely new to me; I think that going to a place you’ve never seen before re-opens your eyes anew. New people, new accents, new sights. I’m not sure what flower this is, I was thinking magnolia, but it’s not quite like the ones I’ve seen here in California.  I’ll be back next Monday with another photo of this flower in a more macro version, macro being the theme for the second Monday of the month at Lens and Pens by Sally.

  11. I like the almost underneath perspective, Angeline. The sky is such a lovely blue that it really sets off the flower.

  17. What a beauty: I’m not sure that it is a magnolia. The ones in the Northeast range in the pinks to whites. But maybe it’s a variety found in the states that you visited. It certainly is unfurling like a magnolia and resembles its leaf shape. Happy Photo Challenge.

      Ah, you have a good eye for the leaves; I googled magnolia flowers and didn’t notice the leaves. This tree caught my attention. Thanks, Sally. Have a great week.
