Moon Over the Glade

July 24, 2018

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I got this black-and-white photo of the July moon over our house by converting the original color photo to monochrome. As seems always to be the case when I try to get a picture of the moon, the evening was cloudy. (I guess I should be happy that it wasn’t raining!) A black-and-white picture just seemed to make the moon a little clearer through the high clouds.

Raindrops on a Rose

Betsy and I think our roses are beautiful at any time, but I really like the way they look after a shower. I got this photo of our Ronald Reagan rose after a June shower a couple of years ago.

Double Delight Rose

A long-time favorite rose of both Betsy and myself is Double Delight. We’ve had it in our garden for as long as we’ve had roses here in the Glade. The colors are gorgeous, and the fragrance is delightful. I took the photo of Double Delight several years ago, but then used Photoshop to turn the photo into a painting.

 

Orange Harvest Iris

April 24, 2018

Once our iris start blooming we can be relatively certain that Spring has come to stay. This beauty is named Orange Harvest, but it is a welcome splash of April color. The picture upon which this ‘painting’ is based was taken several years ago, but Orange Harvest is still putting on a show in our yard.

Spring is Here

We don’t have too many crocus bulbs left in our yard (the chipmunks find them to be very tasty), but the few blossoms we do get are a beautiful sign that Spring is nearly here. I used Photoshop to make a sketch from a picture I took of one of our crocus blossoms.

 

Winter Morning Light

January 23, 2018

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I captured this photo on an early morning January walk on the golf course. Although the scenery wasn’t particularly attractive, I did like the light on the trees and the ground. I played around in Photoshop to turn the photo into a ‘painting’, and got this as a result.

 

A Solar Eclipse Composite

September 26, 2017

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I’ve never thought of myself as being particularly creative, but I’ve seen some composite photos of the August eclipse, and thought it would be interesting to see if I could create a composite of some of the photos I took that day. I’ve never done anything like this before, but I rather like the results of my first attempt.

Frederic Mistral Rose

June 27, 2017

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Sometimes raindrops can make a beautiful rose even more beautiful. I captured the soft pink blossom of Frederic Mistral a couple of years ago, but I have never published it. I thought now was about time.

 

Tulips

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

We don’t have a large number of tulips in our yard these days (thanks to the chipmunks!), but the ones we still have are very pretty.  The photo of these tulips was taken two years ago, and I used Photoshop to help the photo look like a sketch.

Daffodil

March 20, 2017

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I’ve taken many photos of the daffodils blooming in our yard, but sometimes I like to play around with Photoshop to make the photo look more like a ‘painting’.  This is one of my attempts to become an ‘artist’.
