A Sense of Calm

 

stumps-in-water-texturized

My textured photo is showing the cool calmness of the forest in spring.   I used two layers of Kim Klassen’s texture luminous with blending modes of soft light and multiply.   I then added an overlay from Shadowhouse called Box 1 to finish it off.   I hope it speaks to you too. 

I will be joining Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen Cafe and Touch Up Tuesday with Paper Heart Camera.    My husband just called me to come outside to see the fireflies.   Have a great day.  Valerie

Oh I remember fireflies. I haven't seen them in years. When I lived in Long Island New York they were everywhere. Not so much here in Massachusetts.

Your texture is beautiful, and i loved how you framed it and your words.

P.S. thanks for the memories of fireflies and jars of them glowing in the dark.

Such a lovely photo - the text is perfect. The reflection in the water is really nice as well.

I would love to see a firefly too. Your edit is beautiful and so soft and hazy.
