Light Catchers


Creating light

A little more creating light


We've had our first snow of the year.  Enough to look pretty and make the school run a bit of an adventure but I don't think it'll hang about too long (which is always my favourite kind of snow!).  The skies are still pretty overcast and I was in need of a little light and colour.  My pretty tulips are still going strong and I've been playing with Kim Klassen's 'sybil' technique for creating a bit of extra light in photoshop (available in her test kitchen).  

Images processed using Kim Klassen textures sybil and waterfront 7 respectively.
Linking up with Texture Tuesday (not the only tulips you'll see, I think!).

  4. I think we'll be lucky if our heaps of snow are gone in a couple of months! I loved seeing these colorful, tender, light-filled photos of your tulips, Becs.

  7. Indeed light catchers. I especially like the top photo. The colors pf the tulip surrounded by the green with splashes of yellow. Beautiful.

  8. Such beautiful light. They sure do enhance those already perfect tulips. We had one snow, about 5" but it was gone the next day. Like you, that's the kind I like.

  10. These tulips look so beautiful and a bit fragile as well. They ARE light catchers!
