Good morning...a big THANK YOU to Myra (Myrab) and Iaian (Howdog) for awarding me their UA's yesterday

As winter is approaching us the garden is displaying the beauty of decay and the beginning of rebirth. I have had fun capturing a variety of seedheads, today being number one. This one I gave a sepia look to it and a film grain for some interesting texture

We have howling wind and rain out this morning.......

Colleen - this is a stunner - love how you have changed it to sepia - gives more impact especially with the seed head being past it's best. Love it! Smile
