Dogwood

Post by minniev » Wed Mar 14, 2018 10:35 pm

The first dogwood popped out over the weekend, a stunted version that is unusual. It's way too early, and it turned cold again just as it was blooming. The light wasn't conductive to soft pensive shots so I followed the light and went artistic with it. All comments welcome.

Thank you!

I am a bit of a texture addict, I love playing with them. Share your experiments, please, as you go!

Of all the years I've looked at these I don't think I've ever seen one shot from this angle and I love it! S-
