Before and After -Nine

Sometimes I forget to get down in the dirt and get close to plants.  I had to stop myself short as I hiked down a trial, to take this photo of a clump of dandelions already gone to seed...

With a wide open aperture and focus priority on the second dandelion I really liked this photo and new that I could have a lot of fun playing with it using textures!  After a few minutes torking around some new textures I downloaded from Shadowhouse Creations I came up with the result below...

Simple, light, and flowery, a fun little project that took a few minutes.  While this photo is just a few simple dandelions it is still the perfect to play around with... even if I didn't have my macro lens or a nice wind to whisk away some of the seeds for a more dynamic shot.   Always remember to focus on the positives.


  1. Who knew dandilions could be so pretty. I'm just wondering how you were able to lay down to take it! :) I know my baby belly would not let me do such a thing.

  2. I didn't have to lay down! I definitely couldn't have... fortunately these were growing on a steep hill and I was just standing 2-3 feet below them and able to bend over a little to get this shot. :)

  3. I love what you did with that texture. Nice border look.


I love and appreciate all comments! If you have a question please ask away and I will certainly reply.
