This is a shot Julie Orr took a couple weeks ago on our hike up at Lower Cataract Lake. We took the nice little butterfly on the flower and then started playing with that new software package I mentioned in my last post. What resulted is a bit abstract. And dark. And ominous. And lush. And I just freakin’ love it.
I have to talk Julie in getting serious with a camera. She has an eye.
Two takes on a little flower I found Sunday up at Lower Cataract Lake. The Internet assures me this is a fairy trumpet.
Select color first:
… in a flower in the woods at my university.
… at a friend’s house in Deerfield, New Hampshire.
… a flower on the grounds of Yerkes Observatory in Williams Bay, Wisconsin, USA.
– for Julie
Happy Beltane from 5280LM.
… a little beauty for Friday.
The other day I posted this pretty blanket of tulips from the Denver Botanic Gardens. I’ve been reconsidering the shot and thinking it needed a little more focus to succeed. So I did a bit of cropping and pulled the light in on the flower that seems to be the heart of the image – the purple one sticking its head up at the top left third point.
What do you think?
