From Clicking to Creating Spring flowers
Spring flowers, who doesn’t just love all the color after a dull winter. We usually get two springs every year. One early in the year while we are still in the desert, then another spring when we are spending time in Utah. So this weeks 2 Lil Owls prompt of flowers, is perfect.
This flower is called a Silverleaf Sunray. They were blooming all over when we were in Nevada in March, so I picked a few before we left. I wanted to bring a little bit if the desert color with me. They lasted quite a while, but then they started to drop pollen, and dry out. This first image shows the backside of a flower, with some of the yellow pollen on it. I added a couple of texture layers to this one too.
This image gives you a better idea what they actually look like.
Spring happens starting in April in Utah. The weather has been rather up and down, so that impacts everything. This white tulip has some beautiful color and texture.
And check out the tiny spider. I didn’t see him until I got these photos on my computer.
These flowers are Balsam Root arrowleaf. They are prolific around Jackson Hole, but I found one small area that has a few nearby and got some photos last week.
This bee looked cold and wet. It had rained through the night, and he hadn’t warmed up yet.
This weeks Dogwood 52 prompt is Edge Cut Sun. When we had our day trip to the desert a couple weeks ago, the sun and the rocks were perfect for creating this image.
Saturday, we drove to Jackson Hole…YEAH….so Al could install the custom bar he worked on this winter. We are staying several days and enjoying Teton park, and all the wildlife activity going on this time of year. So when I get back, I should have some fun stuff to share.
