Orange and Pink

20160302-MMA_9324_melinda_anderson-EditI think it was last year at this time that I discovered that Trader Joe’s sold ranunculus, my favorite childhood flower. I went looking for them the other day and discovered just a few almost wilted bunches. I picked one in shades of hot pink and orange to take home to enjoy for a few days. I took them outside for the sidelit, golden hour shot above.

20160302-MMA_9313_melinda_anderson-EditI love how tightly the petals are nestled on this dark pink beauty.

I’m no longer a child, but I still love these beautiful flowers.


Ranuncu-LOVE

I had a photo already to post today, but then I came upon these ranunculus photos in Lightroom that hadn’t yet made my blog- one edited and one not.  I had fun editing the second one to kinda-sorta match the first- so here they are!

I could tell I added a filter to a layer in the first photo- and then some texture (which comes in with a label automatically).  I assumed I used Topaz Impression- but which filter??? No idea.  For the second one I used Cezanne II, one of my favorites.  And another thing- is there a way to mark favorites in Impression? Anyone, anyone?


Cheery

Is there anything more cheery than ranunculus? Happy Friday to you!

Flower Fields

When we were in California, we stopped at a beautiful flower farm, where there were acres of ranunculus blooms.  Of course I took dozens of photos, but somehow they never made it into the blog.  Here are a couple of my favorite images; expect to see more soon!
