Lacy plumes of goldenrod bloom in the meadows of Yosemite Valley. Processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels and burning. I also added just a touch of Topaz Simplify.
This little filaree blossom is no more than 1/2 ” in diameter. I love this pastureland plant because of its sweet, five-petaled lavender blossoms. When green it is excellent fodder for horses and cattle. When dry, the blossoms form into nasty little stickers that really stick to your socks!. The stickers are in the shape of a seed on the end of a corkscrew. When they get wet the corkscrew unwinds; thereby planting the seed in the ground. Cool, huh? Only processing here is crop, levels, high pass filter and burning.
