In & Out of Shadows

By CaroleS
Very strong sunshine giving strong shadows on this Potentilla, only a minor adjustment in Photoshop (no vignette and a completely natural background).

Best wishes

Possibly about the last of the season, but beautifully captured and presented, Carole, as the bloom catches the last of the sun.
