Magnolias at Filoli

Just as with hellebores and the summer snowflakes, I have never been satisfied with my photos of the magnolias at Filoli in Woodside, California.  The flowers usually seemed to be somewhat beaten up by the time I photographed them.  This spring, I’m happier with the photos than I was in previous years, mainly because I went to Filoli a little earlier than I had in previous years and many of the flowers had yet to fully open.
