My visit to El Paso, Texas had me looking closely at the desert plants. This wispy one caught my eye….using my Samsung Galaxy III….found out the name of this is Apache Plume

  7. so feathery, so light, like a slight breeze would blow them all away.

  14. Interesting and pretty to see tuffs on a plant.

  15. Your words befit the pictures

  16. Love the wispy desert plant 🙂

  17. Your Samsung images never fail to amaze me. Just another 6 months before I will upgrade my cell phone [at which time I will want to pick your brain about the app(s)]. The top image is, well, van Gogh-like. How cool is that!!

  18. That is a very pretty plant – there’s something special about the desert.

  19. they are so wispy! it’s beautiful and such a contrast to how the stalks of the plant seem coarse and dry.
    love the edits.

  20. I LOVE that first digital alteration with the paint-stroke-like blues in the sky and the white flowers. Blessings!

  21. Hi! Nice captures and good texture. Thanks for sharing.

  22. That is a very beautiful painting filter you used on the two versions. I really like them.

    Thank you for linking up at s~A(R)T~urday!

  23. Thanks for joining! Your photo will be featured on OYGIF this weekend. Hope you could drop by again.

  24. The original of the plant is interesting, such an airy desert plant. The added texture and artistic effects are fabulous! I like them both but the orange one is more surreal. I like your closing sentiments, too.

  25. hi Laurie, It’s me again. What Galaxy app did you use for these??? Samsung is up to Galaxy 6 now…is it safe to assume that the newer models retain the same apps as the III? Cheers, Stan
