Marian Love Phillips of Vicksburg took this picture of a Japanese magnolia tree blossom at night because it was threatened by an incoming storm.
I was excited again to have my picture published in today's, The Vicksburg Post. I took this picture on January 29 right before we were suppose to have bad weather coming through Vicksburg later on that night. I rushed out of the house in the dark and took it and was surprised how well it turned out. Was afraid all my flowers would get beaten to death from the storm.
Once again I am humbled that they chose my photo to be published. Thanks, Vicksburg Post!
