Floral Friday 8.25.12

The fact is that in order to do any thing in this world worth doing, we must not stand shivering on the bank thinking of the cold and the danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.

  1. Such beautiful and elegant images, Arnel.
    I always look forward to your Floral Fridays!

    Nice photos, Arnel. I especially appreciate the beauty of the mist because we have seen a lot of it on our travels during the past couple of weeks. Sometimes hard to get enough contrast. I have a couple that are nice because the fog is creeping over a mountain with blue sky and sun.

    • Thanks Pat! The misty mountains are so beautiful. It’s like being in the clouds. The contrast is difficult. I used the ND filter on my software to help with the brightness of the mist. I would love to see your pictures–I bet they are beautiful!
