One of the  things I really enjoy about going to Trojan pond are all the old-fashioned roses along the paths and under the edges of the forest. Here are some photos of them Io took during early July of last year.

This old-fashioned pink rose, with it’s glowing, golden center, stands out from a dark and shadowy background. The texture overlayed throughout this photo creates a combined effect of sparkling sunlight and an aged elegant vintage feel.

The textures and editing really make this photo pop. I love the color and glow, and it was really fun to do.

I really love what texture can do to a photo, don’t you?

For those of you who are interested, my process in editing these often involves over 20 layers and blending modes to get the desired effect, but it is well worth the time and effort…

During the snow storm around here at the end of February I was able to get a few really good pictures from some of our upper story windows over looking the Columbia River, as well as getting out and about for a hike down into the forest for a photo shoot while the light was just right.

Columbia river and snow by Dawna Morton ~see it framed

A snowy pacific northwest morning looking across the Columbia River from Oregon towards Kelso, Washington. Beautiful snow drifts form between the evergreen trees covering the mountains beyond the bridge leading to I-5.

This photo is so exciting , because with my new canon EOS rebel T2i camera and an old Tamron af 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 tele-macro lens from my father-in-law, I was able to zoom in close enough to see this bridge clearly and use it for a foal point. I was not able to get pictures anywhere close to that far away with my old Olympus camera.

A snow-covered church steeple, topped with a little white cross, nestles in sunlit, forested hills of Rainier, Oregon as the mountain ranges beyond are still darkened with an early morning twilight.

I love the view of this church steeple from my upper story window. It creates a great focal point for my pictures. Despite this photo’s crisp clean look it took deceptively long to remove the power lines and do some other touch up. I tried out leaving in place the window screens because one of the booklets that came with the camera said when shooting up close they would not show up. Although this worked remarkably better than attempts to do the same with my old camera, it did cause an almost triple exposure look in some areas because of light refraction through the window screen. Luckily I was able to clean that up and edit it out.

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.

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.

Here are some more pictures I took back in April of the apple blossoms on our trees. I love the effects I was able to create using some of the tools in picassa. The abstract shapes of the light in the forest in behind this sprig of flowers helped make these truly spectacular. I hope you all enjoy these too:

This elegant, blue-tinted photo creates an atmosphere of moonlight as apple blossoms glow in the light against a dark forest background. Patterns of light and dark in the forest create an effect like a splash of luminescent water in mid-air.

A pink tint adds a dramatic flair to this elegant photo of white apple blossoms, making the light in the dark forest background appear like a splash of luminescent water in mid-air, or like firelight dancing on the crystal inside a geode.

I like to use the graduated tint feature to add tints to just part of a photo– rather than just sticking to using it solely for skies.

All through April I was keeping an eye on the budding apple trees in the back yard, waiting for them to blossom. Then the day came when they were in bloom and the sun was out in all its spring glory.  Here are the pictures, after having some fun tweaking them on the computer:

Bright, cheerful apple blossoms in the foreground of this photo are juxtaposed against an impressionistic dark, moody background.

I love the dreamy, moody, almost surreal, impressionistic feel achieved in this by using a graduated tint as well as several other editing tools

The power went out, and like an idiot I neglected to unplug the computer. Wo is me when the power came back on it fried my pc! Hopefully it only fried the motherboard. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the hard drive is ok and that I will be able to retrieve all my photos. I’d been having trouble with my disk drive and had been unable to back things up recently. I had four months worth of photos I had not posted for sale yet as well as several years of digital family photos that are irreplaceable.

It is several months later and I am up and running again. We upgraded the hard drive, mother board, chip, memory, graphics card, a battery backup/surge protector and got one of those really nice flat screen high definition monitors and even a wireless mouse. I am so glad my husband knows how to fix computers and that we were able to find things on sale. We were able to salvage my photos from the old hard drive and I will be posting more soon 🙂

Close up photo of a pink and white speckled stargazer lily on a black background. One large blossom basks in the glowing sunlight while another bloom hides subdued in the shadows beyond like an echo or a reflection.

Macro photograph of a pink and white stargazer lily on a black background. The stamen and pistol of this gorgeous flower rise upward as the petals unfurl in the radiant sunlight.

Photo of an arrangement of pink and white stargazer lilies glowing radiantly in the sunlight. the soft focus and dark background make one flower stand out dramatically above the rest.

A bit of lens flare and a soft focus lend an ethereal effect to this photo of a bouquet of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies shining radiantly in the afternoon sunlight.
