Texture Tuesday::Duet of Dahlia’s

by heatherkp

Last week I took my new Canon 60D out to the National Capital Dahlia Society‘s demo garden (which happens to be right next to the Master Gardeners demo garden:).  This is the time of the year when Dahlia’s are at their most spectacular!  I had taken a few other trips to the garden but didn’t have the time or equipment to dedicate to a photo shoot on those occasions.  Last Thursday was perfect weather though and I was not disappointed!

Dahlia’s were the flowers I wanted most at my wedding.  I tried to  locate a local farm who could supply us with all the flowers but I couldn’t make that happen.  I did have Dahlia’s in the wedding though and in my bouquet.  They are one of my favorite cut flowers and I find all the different forms spectacularly beautiful with their folded petals that unfurl and open to the sun.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed visiting this garden every fall to see these beauties while living here.  Maybe someday I will grow some of my own.  For now they will be everlasting in my photo’s.

Today’s images are edited using layers of Kim Klassen’s textures.  Check out her blog for other amazing photo’s and textures!
