Indian Summer Days

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest FIRST PLACE Winner
 
Indian Summer Days
Indian Summer Days

It always takes a while for summer to release it's grip on Central TX and for Fall to finally set in - but once that happens, we are lucky to enjoy long strings of Indian Summer-like days...warm sunny days and cool, crisp nights extending all the way into December. There's a payoff for all that summertime heat! I added various Flypaper Textures to the b/g to enhance the Indian Summer-like effect on the visitor to my garden....yep, monarchs are still passing thru!

Happy Wednesday!

WOW! I can't believe I missed this one earlier, Val! Certainly one of the all-time outstanding monarch captures I've ever seen! Not only is your detail and clarity exquisite, your use of textures to bring out the Indian Summer mood is simply brilliant! A most spectacular finalist that would only be made more perfect with Gold!
