Here are some more wildflowers photos I took on one of my many walks this summer, and another wildflower bouquet my daughter made for me 🙂 She does make beautiful bouquets.

These photos are of a bouquet of red  roses, tiny light pink wildflowers, and ferns that came from my back yard. They were then placed in a vase in the afternoon sunlight with a dark blue tablecloth draped behind them.

Last month I went in my back yard and clipped a bunch of roses and gathered some wildflowers from my garden, with the intent of taking them to my friend R. T. for her birthday. And just to be clear, seeing as I have more than 1 friend locally with those initials, Rhonda, these are for you. I managed to get a photo shoot in, but life  with 2 kids in diapers got in the way of getting out the door with them before they wilted 😦

The sun was streaming brightly through the kitchen window, creating beautiful highlights and shadows so I placed the bouquet in a vase on the counter after draping a dark blue table cloth over the cupboard door behind it.

This is the very last batch of pictures I took in May, really it is 😉

On the way home from the park I saw these flowers in a planter box in front of a local hair salon. I really liked how they matched the paint on the building. All the warm tones were pretty in the glow of the afternoon sun. I’m not sure what kind of flowers these are… possibly they are some sort of mum. It would probably be easier to tell if the blooms had been opened.

Yellow and orange blossoms, growing in a planter box in front of a yellow and orange building, almost form a circlet as they bask dreamily in the sun–awaiting another day to open and bloom. Flowers near the periphery appear semi transparent and ghost-like almost as a reminder of past hopes and dreams.

Here is the third and last installment of pictures I took on the way home from the park on Memorial Day.  I’m so glad I saw these little hidden treasures peeking out from amidst the grasses along the banks of Fox Creek. Having the lighting be so wonderful that day was an added bonus. Hopefully you will enjoy them too.

Here is another installment of pictures I took on the way home from a trip to the park with my kids on Memorial Day. These pretty old-fashioned Roses were hiding so well in the grass along Fox Creek where it joins the Columbia River that I almost missed seeing them. Several of these have a nice view of the sky and the Columbia River in the background, lending them an almost tropical or day-at-the-beach atmosphere.

On Memorial Day I took my kids down to the park to play. These beautiful wildflowers were growing in the grass near the path. They look like a silver bush lupine or maybe a sierra lupine.

Back in may when I was editing my tulip photos I decided to do experimenting with one of them in paint.net just to see what some of the different photo editing tools did and to learn to do some new things. It’s been long enough ago now that I don’t remember all the different steps I used to create these one of the tools I used on this first one was layer properties. Opening multiple copies of the same photo and then choosing different levels of transparency and blending modes. I think I even used a polar inversion, which did some interesting things to the background on one layer.

Superimposed with many semi transparent layers of abstract shapes, this red tulip seems to be floating in a nebula.

Then when I started getting this ready to post here I decided that the tulip needed to be moved higher in the picture to create a better composition. this was done by flipping another copy of the picture upside down , and then blending the edges together, as well as making a few other changes, and then cropping it. It looks even more beautiful now.

My kids however, thought it looked “weird” to have the tulip under the semi transparent layers, so I made this one, just for them, by adding multiple gradient layers of the tulip on top as well as adding a swirl beneath–and then doing the usual final retouches.

part 2 of 2

Back in mid May I got these beautiful pictures after dropping the kids off at school in the morning. It had just finished raining and the sun came out, shining beautifully on the irises that bloom beside my driveway. Then I had some fun playing around with graduated tints and such to make these photos even more dramatic.

Here is one with a sepia tint that has been warmed, had the saturation boosted a bit, as well as having had a few other changes made to it. I love the copper tones in it as well as the old fashioned feel that is enhanced by the white picket fence in the back ground.

This soft and dreamy photo of a purple iris in the green grass in front of a white house has been given an abstracted impressionistic style. Covered in raindrops this beautiful flower stands out from the muted greens, pink and lavender gray background.

This picture started out with a house and several cars in the background. After removing the cars and making several other changes, I decided I liked the house but wanted it softer.  So then I opened it up with paint.net and multiple layers with a variety of layer properties to  make the background more soft and abstract as well as using picassa to make some other changes. This turned out beautifully with this picture; however, as I was writing this blog post it became apparent to me that the house in the background was drawing too much attention away from the flower which was supposed to be the main focal point.

The next picture darkens the house with some blue and purple tones as well as simplifying and darkening the foreground surrounding the flower. The results are truly lovely.

A soft and dreamy photo of a purple iris bud beginning to blossom surrounded by an abstracted impressionistic background of greens and earthy reds. Covered in raindrops this beautiful flower sparkles in the spring sunlight.

This photo uses the same photo editing process I described above. I love almost metallic glittery sheen on the flower  in combination with the abstract almost flame-like patterns of brownish-red and green in the background.
