Explosions of colour.

Yesterday on a walk to the library we saw all sorts of fascinating things along the roadside.

I loved this explosion of colour.

I did spend a little time in the editing software on this, tweaking brightness and so on. Which led to a discussion about where I want to spend my time and money. Not on software. I *know* that you can do awesome things in photoshop, but I’m much more interested in doing awesome things with the camera. I don’t have the time or money to go on a training course right now (sad really, as I got a press release this morning about Jessops offering courses, such as this one, ah well!) But I *keep* looking at slightly better cameras. Ones with dedicated batteries. Sigh.

Anyway, more about colour.

Or in this case, more about contrast.

The shadows here were fascinating. I don’t think I’ve quite got the focus where I wanted it, but it’s not far off.

And finally, the queen of flowers. The rose. They are just so glorious.

The colour and feel of this one evokes velvet, don’t you think?
