Frosted Flowers




I shot this photo last Friday when it was very cold and icy.  I didn’t realize until I opened it in the editor that I managed to capture a rainbow-like glare along the edge of the vase.  I love refracted light!

I’m surprised that the flowers are still intact today as they were outside for the shoot so I could take advantage of the natural light and an icy background. A day early, but this is my contribution to Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday.  The theme:  “Dreamy”.  I used two of Kim’s textures:  1402 & 1402magic, along with some gradient and solid color fills in PS Elements 8.  If you’d like to see how I processed this image, you can find my  full “recipe” here.

I’m glad that February is almost over!  It’s always my least favorite month which makes it seem the longest rather than the shortest.
