The other day when I needed to go to the post office, the sun was out and the weather was warm–perfect for a brisk walk; so, I grabbed my camera and headed out on foot to get some photos and some exercise on the way. When I got to the old elementary school I stopped to take pictures of the tulips there because the plants growing around them made such an interesting background. It looked similar in leaf shape and color to the dusky broad leaved red eucalyptus that is available at most craft stores for use in floral arrangements, only it also had large spiny thorns and little yellow flowers. After searching around on the internet a bit I think it might be a variety of red Japanese Barberry.

Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as traditional red ones , and a pink native variety to Oregon in the backyard–since they are the first things to bloom in my yard each year. Last year I transplanted these red ones from between several ferns to a roomier and slightly sunnier location. Hopefully they will start filling out a little better now. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on my bleeding hearts and on the sunlight out the kitchen window for the perfect photo opportunity. A few weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on several separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.

In this softly focused macro photo, a red bleeding heart hangs from its stem alone in the sun as beads of rainwater glisten on it’s leaves. Beyond are the dark shadows of the forest and the remains of last autumn’s brown leaves strewn on the ground.

This expressive, softly focused, digitally edited photo is of a row of red bleeding hearts hanging from a branch. The two blossoms in the center seem to snuggle up to each other as rain droplets glisten on the flowers’ translucent edges. Rich and vibrant red, the glowing heart-shaped blossoms stand out beautifully from the dark night background of shadow and almost abstracted plant shapes.
Created by using a graduated tint as well as adjusting som of the other lighting settings to make the flowers and water droplets stand out, this photo is stunningly beautiful. Although this editing technique does not work with every photo, when it does the results are beautiful and dramatic. The less edited version is also shown below.
