Cereus night bloomer

San Diego

At 12:30am... this night blooming cereus is still not fully in bloom.
Without coffee, I couldn't last much longer so could get only a few
shots before retiring for the night.

Post processing using Paint Shop Pro 8: 45% fade correction,
Resampled, added frame and USM with Radius 0.5, Strength
150 and no clipping.

My picture galleries:

Olympus C-2100UZ
1/30s f/8.0 at 7.0mm iso100 with Flash full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Great capture. Like you getting these fellows is an exercise in patience. I was able to them around 8:00pm at night.
