Observations!

Say Ahhh!
"Look! Nature is overflowing with the grandeur of God!"~John Muir~ 
I took this photo in St. Louis, on our vacation. It was pretty enough but somehow just not interesting enough! I played with the layers, filters, brushes and the end result was quite pleasing for me. Just a little artistic enhancement to satisfy my photoshop obsession! The lens of my camera has helped me to see and realize the true grandeur of nature. By cropping and zooming I am now looking down the throat of this magnificent, Iris. Almost an invasion of privacy, so to speak, a place I would ordinarily never go with anyone human, at least! At first glance, I would have missed the miraculous workings of this beautiful bulb that transforms itself into fine art by, Mother Nature!
To look and really see from every perspective is a gift I would like to develop!

I am also getting bored with my photos and find myself wanting to go back to using textures again. I go back and forth. Love what you did for this lovely iris.

Ooops!
Came here to visit before I'd realized that you'd linked this up at The Creative Exchange.

Thank you so much for doing so Rosemary!!

A bearded Iris always gets my vote.
A blue one is twice as nice.
