Red Apples on Tree

This picture went through some editing steps, but
the colour of the apples has not been tampered with!

I include the original photo for comparison:

Shifting Colours

For this picture I have used Artistic Effect "Coloured Edges" in PSP9.

but forgot to change the date... Well, never mind!)

I'm not quite sure, but I think this is some kind of  hawthorn - crataegus - hagtorn

The first picture is a lucky straight-from-the-camera shot.
The second one has been slightly cropped, clarified and sharpened in PSP9.

Countryside View

Sunday afternoon walk in the countryside, 20 September 2009.
We've had a mild September so far and the green colours still dominate the landscape.
But the withered flowers and grass by the roadside bear witness to the time of year.
Among others goldenrods - solidago virgaurea - gullris

Painted Lady - Cynthia Cardui - Tistelfjäril
The days are getting shorter,  nights and early mornings colder, but we have still been blessed with sunny days and warm afternoons this mid-September week.

From Summer Greens to Autumn Reds

If I'm not mistaken, this is a Berberis bush (Berberis vulgaris).
I'm not really a garden expert, though - I only have a balcony!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
