Below is the original photo used to create this image. While taking an afternoon walk around Floyd, VA in the rain. Hanging baskets with a beautiful variety of flowers seemed to be outside every shop. I couldn’t resist these incredible purple and yellow pansies. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
