Dahlia Daze

Well, it’s that time of year again.  The annual Dahlia Festival is in full swing and along with it, the mornings are beginning to have a slight nip, the days are getting shorter and the Dahlias are in full bloom.  Each year that I am home, I have to make a trek to the Dahlia Fields to lose myself for hours amongst the myriad of colors, patterns, shapes, textures.

Once back in the digital darkroom, I let my creative juices run wild through an assortment of NIK filters.
