The crocus is the herald of Spring in my garden. All bulbs follow after. My favorite color is purple. So royal, so noticeable and a richer color then yellow or white. I’ve added a rainbow colored texture by Painted Textures to enhance this lovely flower.
The original image was taken in my garden in Southern Oregon. I added the texture by using layers in Photoshop CS6. Some of the texture was removed, contrast and brightness added.

I’m a 66 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
