Signs of Spring

serve life

The park across the street from my office is a virtual oasis in the middle of the area. I don't know why I don't take advantage of it more. Someone has planted a grove of daffodils in a clearing under the trees. There aren't many in bloom at the moment, but I imagine it will be quite breathtaking when they are in full bloom. I'm planning to make it a point to go out each day and check on them. I captured this one just starting to bloom on the same day that I found that thicket full of birds.

I used Bonnie's "Serve Life" texture and did tons of work in Topaz to achieve the effect.

Photo Art Friday


  1. Beautifully done. I like using Topaz filters too!

  2. Lucky texture - to be paired up with that photo and 'treated' so beautifully! Thank you so much for sharing your work with PAF. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Leanne this is just great! I love your processing. What a great place to have right by your office. If you are like me though, once you go in to work, that is the end of the outside until you leave for the day. wonderful find and have a great day!

  4. eerie and serene quality to your growing daffodils
    Stay inspired!

  5. Your piece is beautiful, almost like a painting.

  6. Gorgeous edit. Sometimes I get so involved with an edit trying first this, then that, that I get lost in it for hours. This looks like it took some time and trial and error. Beautiful.
