Spring Blooms

I can never remember the names of flowers and trees and today is no exception. I captured this image almost a month ago after Jacinta spotted this beautiful display of nature.

We are to be married today, it’s all hectic around here but our prayers have been answered and the rain is clearing off. I’m looking forward to saying “I do” later and making Jacinta my beautiful wife!
Slightly later… we got a mention on the radio when Ian Dempsey read out my text. A pity he fluffed up my surname but their text machine must have mangled it somehow! Jacinta reminded me that it’s a cherry blossom in the photo above!

A rose by any other colour

One of the Blarney Castle roses.
The original was very saturated and detail was lost in the bright red of the petals. Making a monochrome image made the detail stand out and drops became visible again.
A little dodge and burn to finish.

Red Blarney Roses

While out with Matt this fine morning we walked over to Blarney Castle. Just inside the railings are some beautiful red roses. I just had to take advantage of the beautifulsunshine and snap off a few shots!
Photo was desaturated, and the red and yellow channels were restored afterwards to isolate the lovely colour of the flowers.
