Camellia Lit by Flashlight

The Camellia in the front yard once again bloomed with a snowfall following the next day.  I had wondered what would explain the early arrival of the blooms, which would probably doom it in more northern areas.  Wikipedia to the rescue: the source of the plant is the Himalayas.

The photo was taken at night by leaving the camera shutter open and selectively adding light (often called painting with light) with flashlight.
