Behind the Photo: Oregon Hill Magnolia

Posted By on Fri, Mar 11, 2016 at 2:05 PM

Spring is emerging in Oregon Hill, the home of Richmond’s grandest cemetery. Most of the trees are still dormant, but this magnolia is in full bloom.

As I took this shot I noticed the pedals blowing off rapidly, and I knew this beauty was fleeting. The light-bulb moment wasn’t lost on me that I was standing among a sea of gray headstones.

Photographed with a Nikon D750, 24mm, 1/1000 second at F/11.
