I never realised cabbages could be beautiful!

It was hard to work out the light and blur in this one – too much dark and it was too cabbagey, too light and it lost its structure..hoping I’ve found a happy medium..!

I took this photograph a while back now, but I was interested to see what else I might be able to do with it.

This is very different to my usual shots, I mostly tend to avoid such dramatics with landscape – often to me I find the places can end up seeming not quite believable, not as they feel.. I felt inspired to try something new though, so here’s my experiment! I’m kind of pleased with the dark wildness of it, and the highlights on the stone..I’m a little unsure about the sky – this is the actual sky, as it was, but I think I need to work a little more at the edges..

Just for interest, here is my original – such a very different mood!

p.s. I hope you don’t mind the randomness here at the moment – just little thoughts while I’m in and out of other things, but it’s nice to keep a post going every now and then.

I was excited last weekend to find that my music and photographs were featured on Elsa Mora’s generous and lovely blog, Art is a Way.

I’ve been a huge admirer of Elsa’s work for several years now – her intricate papercut work and other fantastic creations are so inspiring.  I feel really honoured to be listed there!

The first featured image was one that I had kind of put to the back of my mind, and it was nice to be reminded of it. It inspired me to give this small girl a new view..
