Flowers in winter

Winter is not very colorful season. It is either browny-yellow, or, when snow falls, it is clean and white. There is no blooming flowers and other plants, adding to the landscape. Don’t get me wrong, I love the white of fresh snow. But sometimes you just want a little bit of color. And finding how some plants form something of color, something interesting to get them through the season of cold is refreshing.

I looked at this image and felt it can use some preset/filter type of work. The yellow and blue colors were there, and it was perfect for this image, taken with Nikon N65 film camera, to add even more vintage, film feel to it. I couldn’t decide between “warm storm” and “summer holiday” from X-equals, but the “warm storm” effect was a bit more subtle, so iI went with it.
