Catching the light

I photographed my huge Russian sage (although not a native plant, it seems to pop up everywhere), on two different days over the weekend- and what a difference a day makes.

Here is Saturday’s photo.


And here is Sunday’s!  I have to give my husband credit for this one. He looked out the window while we were watching TV (still binge-watching Damages!), and exclaimed over the light in the clouds. While he paused the TV, I ran out and captured this one before the light changed.

20140727-DSC_2067_melinda_anderson-EditBoth photos are textured with Kim Klassen’s textures- golden and waterfront11 on the first, 1301 on the second.

Linking up with Texture Tuesday today.

  1. Beautiful, so I guess I need a husband to find the light for me, you have him trained well there.

  2. Wow, what a difference! The second one looks sinister but very striking! The first one is calming and dreamy…a wonderful contrast.

  9. Melinda, I’m so in love with this! Your Russian sage is gorgeous, as is the backdrop and your processing! I’ve been away for awhile, and also follow you from my WP site here, and it’s good to be back again and joining in with Kim! Enjoy a beautiful weekend!
