Dancing in the light on New Year's morning 2012 by 

I opted to spend the first morning of 2012 at my local botanical garden, always a place that renews my spirit. The fuchsia garden is near the entrance and thus it’s one of my first stops when flowers are blooming. Fuchsia season is nearly over in Southern California, but a few remaining blossoms are still beautiful – like this delicate pair. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/3.5, 1/200 sec., ISO 200, filtered morning sun) – I used two textures from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures

    So beautiful, Celeste. You can feel the morning light in the transparencie of the petals and I love the textures , they work very well together.
    I fell the same about my garden …now it is just snow and birds…but it is still beautiful.

  • Thank you, Eby. I know so well the spiritual connection you have with your flowers, as it shines in your work. You are fortunate to have your own garden. Living in an apartment in the city, I become attached to the gardens of others. :)
