As the woodland
In a dewy
First the enhanced photo. I uploaded the original photo to Snapseed, a free photo editing tool to sharpen the original a tad then I used a bright filter to add drama. I then uploaded this image to Pics art where you can do lots of funky things, but I mainly use it for borders and special effects when I want to add atmosphere and also if I want to create montages or multi-photos in one frame as yesterday’s post. I used a vignette, a Bokeh24 mask and border 23. I hope you enjoy the result,
Here’s the original taken in a nature reserve in Northamptonshire. Which do you prefer?

Woven water’s edge,
Like a hessian canvas.
Fly in matrices.
The whistling winds
Ward off timid tits
Wild waves make

River Nene flows
Peaceful life is
Reeds tangle, shaking
Telling tales of sailing boats
Sweeping down river,
Wind swollen mainsail
Enjoying power of nature’s flow.

Inquisitive solitary swan
Along chilly rippling
Bull rushes guard her nest.
