Blossoming Fruit Tree and Adobe Wall, New Mexico


Ah, Springtime! Even in Santa Fe, it’s starting to happen. My short time there provided glimpses of confetti-like blossoms hanging delicately on trees planted against adobe walls. I managed to find and create this image before the strong New Mexican sun struck, giving me softer details to match the delicate aspect of the flowers. I had to get up at 6 AM to do it, but I’m not complaining.

I applied a tiny bit of Topaz Simplify adjustments to this image to add a painterly quality to it. I’ll be giving a webinar on April 17th at 2 PM PST on how I use Topaz to enhance and add artistic effects to my images. It will be fun and I hope to ‘see’ you there!
