“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke

A little slice of Sedona I Thought I’d share with you. A flower I enjoyed
while on a hike this AM. Hope you like it as much as I do…

After the capture of the flower it was extracted from the background and placed in another file with an organic background I made a couple days ago. The flower was enhanced and a drop shadow added. It was then duplicated and moved numerous times until I came up with what you see here.

Happy Earth Day to you… Yours in Photography,           Bob
