Not sure what this flower is..      COULD IT BE WHITE GINGER LILY (Hedychium coronarium) ?

This image was made while walking home through the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne late in the afternoon.   A shaft of light caught these white flowers, with the background in deep shadow.   Perfect time to capture the flower blooms – a busy tangle of petals, but at least the busy background fades away at this time of day.
