Mallorn flowers at night-time.
One for LOTR devotees, of which there seem to be quite a few on EPZ.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Love what you have done to this, Dave, most effective. Two beautiful japanese anemones, one of the white verions, of which we were discussing recently. Carol

Sorry - LOTR is Lord of The Rings, the book by J R Tolkien, if anyone was wondering. One of the greatest books of the 20th century, or seen as such by many people. (Film was OK, but the book is much better IMO.)

Sorry, I should have said that LOTR is Lord of The Rings, by J R Tolkien, one of the greatest books of the last century. IMO much better than the also excellent film. I have encountered quite a few LOTR enthusiasts on EPZ in the two years I've been a part of the latter.

I am still trying to see how you do that, Dave! That is such a beautiful effect and works so well with flowers. I wonder what it would look like with one of your Celtic designs.

Excellent manipulation very nicely done but Iím afraid that I prefer the colour. Googled LOTR before I scrolled down and saw your explanation. I would never have worked it out.

Never thought about that, Christina. So many to choose from. I'll have a go with a B&W one. Nice thought. Thanks.
