Almost Wordless Wednesday {link-up} ~ Spring is finally here #almostwordlesswednesday

These weeks seem to fly by so fast and once again I am preparing my post for Almost Wordless Wednesday.  I hope you will join me this week with your Almost Wordless Wednesday.

Almost Wordless Wednesday
Spring is Finally Here
I think that spring has finally sprung here in the U.P.  Although there is still some snow in the trees and a few piles here and there but for the most part it is gone...  We may have just jumped right into summer and skip spring all together.   Memorial Day Weekend was wonderful.. warm and sunny and we got a lot done.  I also had time to head over the Michigan Tech to take a look at their tulips and daffodils.  

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers.

The same picture with different editing: 
The first is the original picture.  Middle I cropped the picture and boosted the colours and the third one of my favorite editing tools ~ pencil sketch and bringing in some of the colour.

Someone was curious and came to check out what I was doing....

Pencil sketch lets me edit pictures that are slightly out of focus and may not use otherwise.  I love the way the closed tulips look shiny with this editing.


Last week's Almost Wordless Wednesday was Snow in May.
