Apple Blossoms



Delicate blossoms are often short lived. A heavy downpour can often send petals fluttering to the ground. So when I saw that my Crabapple had come into flower on the weekend, I picked a few branches and grabbed the camera.


 Today I am participating in Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesdays, as well as Lisa Gordon's Creative Exchange. To see other beautiful photographs, please click the links.

To create these images, I added three textures on top of my original photograph: Kim Klassen's Yesteryear Texure (soft light at 50% opacity), KK_PourVous (soft light) and a green, leafy texture of my own making (also soft light blending mode).

  5. Apple blossoms already! The leaves are just beginning to show on our trees. It'll be weeks before I see blossoms yet. Yes indeed, I am jealous!
