Today was the first day in what seems like an eternity but is in fact only about 3 weeks, that it has not rained all day long. I managed to get in to the garden where I was able to photograph some of the apple blossom that began to appear a couple of weeks ago. Luckily the rain and wind hadn’t managed to destroy it completely.
This is my favourite photo, followed by variations created using ‘Big Aperture’ – I may well use some of these for another ‘blossom’ inspired painting:
I think my favourite is ‘blossom purple’, the 3rd photo down, I really like the subtle differences in shade.
