We have had some awesome sunsets this week, and I managed to capture this one last night; it’s made whit twelve photos, photo-merged in Photoshop Elements 12. I was amazed at the results, as I’d not covered the area quite right, but PSE filled in the edges beautifully, leaving me only one small area to fix up!
It is now official: autumn has arrived with blossoms of “fall crocus” (Colchicum), also known as “naked lady” or “meadow saffron.” These little flowers are a magical sight this time of year. Leaves grew in spring, when bulbs such as daffodils and tulips are bursting into bloom. But nothing happens; the leaves die back unnoticed–until September, when one day, there they are in their bright colors of lavender with bright orange (saffron color) stamens. Such a welcome surprise at the end of the growing season!
