Aquilegia desertorum

By Alan_Baseley  
We went to Harlow Carr yesterday and I had my Tamron 90mm on the camera most (99%) of the time, so I'll posting a few flowers in the next week or so.

Edit. Oops just noticed the spelling and corrected it.

Joline, I used various selection tools to select, then mask the flower on a new layer and then applied Gaussian Blur to the background layer up to the maximum,
