A lily recovered..
While shooting couple of weeks ago I took a single photo of a lovely lily (a mistake, but excusable as I had my 6-year old tugging me along!). The photo was under-exposed and grey. I have tried to recover from this photographic disaster using post-processing. The results and the original are below.
I used Adobe Lightroom for general photo handling and Color Efex Pro to enhance detail and contrast. I realise I have lost detail on the petals due to the original problems with the photo (which was in RAW format).

Not your common daffodil
A slightly uncommon daffodil photographed at the Anglesey Abbey.
All signs suggest that spring has well and truly sprung here in East Anglia. I was at the Anglesey Abbey last weekend, and among all the bluebells, snowdrops, daffodils and hyacinths were some lovely flowering comfrey plants.
As you may already know, comfreys have long been associated with medicinal properties – particularly for the treatment of skin treatment. Their role in herbal medicine, to say the least, has been controversial. Nevertheless, they are an attractive addition to wildflower gardens.
