Shadow Shot Sunday # 4




This week's shadow shot is part of a beautiful bunch of flowers my daughter and son-in-law sent to us last week. OK, I cheated a little. I was playing with the image in Photoshop and thought this looked a little more interesting - almost like looking through bubbly glass.
What a wild, stormy night it was last night. In my dazed half-awake state it appeared to be one long thunder storm, with flashes of lightning and incessant rain falling. I guess the drought is over and summer is truly here!

Fascinating effect! The flowers look as if they are hiding behind a thin veil of falling water! Quite enchanting!

Hey Harriet said...

Ha! I was thinking the same thing as Sweet Repose!

Love what you've done with this. Very creative! Photoshop is way beyond my capabilities...

Oh & I wasn't scavaging around the bin. I was thoughtfully disposing of my rubbish. That's all. Really & truly! :)

This is shadow shot wild! It looks like a needlepoint canvas to me made up in raw silk.
