Morniing Jewels  by hampshirelady

Currently unavailable for purchase

You know those cold autumn mornings, when the sun has just risen and everything is pink and mauve and the whole world sparkles and is covered in a zillion shining crystals……….
I loved the seedpods on this wild flower – they looked like amethysts – or at least they did tonight when I found this on my hard drive. I must be truthful and say I am not sure they did when I took the image back last September one early, cold morning and all I wanted was a cup of hot tea with some buttered toast! Two pieces!

Worked in PS – image duplicated blended with texture and gradients used to enhance colouring – what would I do without gradients!


wildflowers, cold, morning, autumn, frost, dew, tea, toast, purple, mauve, diamonds, jewels

    LOL, I’m all for hot tea and buttered toast no matter what the weather : )
    I’m often in awe of the most simple things like light shining on water. Nature’s little gift to us. Well seen and captured, Sue. The background is lovely, too.
