Artsy Apricot Flowers

Posted by on Jun 11, 2012 in Macro, Photography, Plants & Flowers | 11 comments

It’s been too windy here for good macros lately, and that’s what I’m in the mood to play with right now, so I pulled this one from my archives and worked it up. And since I was indeed in the mood to play, I did an artsy treatment with it as opposed to a more realistic one. Too bad this flower never yielded any fruit. Too much wind? Frost? At least it was pretty while it lasted.

  10. A wonderful image, Caryn. This is just so aesthetically pleasing.

  11. @Andrew Graeme Gould, Thanks! That's exactly what I was going for (as opposed to realistic or detailed). Sometimes it's fun just to create something and not worry about staying true to the original.
