A Bevy of Bleeding Hearts  by Anita Pollak

Photographic Prints


Oh, I miss the bleeding hearts from our garden last spring! I took this shot last April and for some reason I never processed it, but a wintry December day is just perfect for revisiting these lovely flowers.

Photographed with the Nikon 300S and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens. Processed with Topaz Simplify Oil and Solstice Passion from French Kiss Textures.

Featured in In the Pink (January 16, 2013)

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.

    The background tones and texture work so well to show off the beautiful pink of these flowers! Simple, very effective framing.

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments, Celeste. When I saw that texture I thought it would work well with this image.
