Hydrangea on ice

Hydrangea on ice

My grandmother years ago had a saying for trying for the best with something not so perfect—"making a silk purse out of a sow's ear." I couldn't help but think of that as I revisited this image while working through my archives as I backed up my backlog of images. I also thought of Diane Varner's excellent, atmospheric images on her blog, Daily Walks. I think maybe the mood and cropping of this image works even if it's not technically perfect. And yes, I dressed it up the best I could in Photoshop.
