But the truth is, it’s not the idea, it’s never the idea, it’s always what you do with it.

Below is the original photo used to create this image. I visited a local-ish winery, Saude Creek, located in Lanexa, VA. Their late-summer landscaping was in full bloom and I probably took way too many photos of the lush foliage and flowers including these Black-eyed-Susans. Oh, and the wine was good too… No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
