Here’s the solstice. It seems like only a few days ago I complained about how fast May had passed and now we’re within reach of July 4th. It’s a rainy start to the season as we’ve been receiving light rain, a drizzle actually, through the night and it’ll continue for the next several hours (3:45 at this moment).
I’ll close out Spring with a colorful Red Maple image and open Summer with a redo of an old Grass Pink image reprocessed.
I’ve shot similar before and continue to do so. Eventually all the red will disappear into a strong Summer green, but the tinges are subtle and attractive. The dewy sheen is a nice addition.
I decided to reprocess an older Grass Pink image since I wasn’t going to be able to visit my usual patch of them here in Amherst. It’s possible I’ll get to photograph some at Hawley Bog soon, but for now decided to hit the archives. By accident I applied a white vignette (as opposed to black) and decided to stay with that effect.
I think I may pursue this as a series of wildflower images.
I don’t really have a Boston accent. 🙂
