“Give us dew to favor Your land, grant us a blessing of Your joy. Make us strong with plentiful grain and wine. Restore Jerusalem, Your delight, as flowers are renewed by dew. Let this be a good year for dew, crowned with proud and beautiful fruit. May the city of Jerusalem, once empty, be turned into a crown that sparkles like the dew.”
(excerpt from the Jewish Prayer for Dew from Heaven- prayed at the end of Passover for the dry season)

Today i have a guest iPhone photographer. My husband is out near Denver Colorado on a farm with the only computer we have. I didn’t know exactly what I was going to do for my blog photo today until he sent me this beautiful photo he took with his iPhone about an hour ago. OMG, I wish I had taken this. It’s beautiful!
All I did was put a very small amount of “charmed glow” on it in CinemaFX app for iPhone.

Alabama the Beautiful
My children hate Alabama and it’s only because every time we visit their grandparent’s in Florida, we have to drive the whole length of the state on ‘boring’ Interstate 65.
Of course along the way there are signs that say “Alabama the Beautiful” at which my children always scoff. I’ve tried to point out a few things that are beautiful each time we make the pilgrimage from Tennessee to Florida.
My daughter and I stopped at a gas station along the way to Florida last week and I looked up and saw this beautiful scene. Maybe there is a little bit of truth in Alabama’s statement of how beautiful their state is.

Field of Trees
This is a field of trees that I pass on my way to work if I go the back way. Right now dogwood trees are blooming and you can see some purple in the background. I used sharpen, crop, orten-ish, advanced curves (high contract etc.), saturation, mirrored frame and vibrant in Picnik when editing. (and not necessarily in that order) I could have used some others but I can’t remember. I never do the same thing twice.
