Winter is approaching. Although a little over a month until the Solstice, the forecast calls for @19°F Friday night which means I soon will have to switch into ice and frost mode for photography. I just stocked up on handwarmer packets to put into the fingertip pouch on my new winter gloves and foot warmers for my boots.
In the coming days, I might dip into the frozen archives for a few looks at winter’s past but for now, in the absence of winter, how about a look at a summer past? A warm summer Sunday at the lotus pond maybe?
The dark background is natural, although I did use a few channel selections to create some contrast so the warm flower stood out a bit more. All in a day’s digital darkroom work.
