dragonfly on purple


dragonfly on purple, originally uploaded by newmexicomtngirl.

A little picture I added to my flickr site so I could post it to a contest over on The Pioneer Woman’s blog where she is having a contest/assignment about bugs. Her site is so wonderful and funny and full of great info about life on a farm, as she puts it “one calf nut at a time”. she has a wonderful photography section where she shows you tricks using Photoshop Elements even, as well as the larger version of Photoshop. That’s where l learned about the filter>render>lighting effects I used here.

I also uploaded this image to my Red Bubble account if you would like to purchase one

    some photos and wonderful paintings. Thanks for visiting my blog and now I can enjoy yours!
    Your flower paintings are right up my alley… so to speak:)

    MY mom grew up in New Mexico, in Santa Rosa. Her family were homesteaders and lived in the mesas. Really just beautiful.

    I look forward to more paintings

    Hi CheyAnne. This photograph is amazing–I can’t imagine how one can capture a split second like that … And the colors are beautiful.
    I was in NM once, for the first time, a couple of years ago–can’t wait to go back!
    And thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog.
