Yellowstone Peonies

When I saw that my daughter had a bouquet of peonies on her dining room table, I couldn’t resist carrying them over to the window for a quick still life shot. The house Caitlin and family live in is over 100 years old and is part of what used to be Fort Yellowstone.  I love the old windows!

20150625-MMA_7848_melinda_anderson-EditI used one of Kim Klassen’s presets (darklight) for the edit in Lightroom and then added textures in Photoshop. The peonies were actually hot pink, but I wanted more of a vintage look to go with the window.

I have recently been introduced to canva.com through Kim’s Studio group. What a fun and easy way to make collages!  This was a quick layout done totally online (nothing to buy) of Henry smelling peonies outside his house.

  2. I try and get my grandboys when I am there in Portland to appreciate nature and talk to them about what I see. I don’t know if I am making a difference or not as they are such rough and tumble boys. I love your little grandson, I think his name is Henry smelling the goodness of that peony.
