We hope you’re all having fun conjuring up some magical images with our new Alchemy textures! I’ve discovered they work particularly well as backgrounds, they’re great to use in still lifes for example, they’re also good and adding interest to skies. So I thought I’d try them out on this recent cherry blossom photo.
Welcome to our brand new updated Flypaper website! Take the time to explore, especially the blog where you’ll find texture recipes for some of our photos.
Flooded River Saone
Up here in eastern France we’ve had a very soggy winter, warmer than usual but also much wetter and because of all that rain we’ve not had much chance of getting fresh images, but on Sunday we had a rare golden hour when I captured some lovely floodscapes on a very flooded River Saone.
Shot from an ancient raised Roman road above the flooded farmfields, these trees are normally overgrown hedgerow tops and not the banks of a huge lake!
