IMG_7222Our willow tree with a little Orton effect thrown in.

Orton imagery, also called an Orton slide sandwich or the Orton Effect, is a photography technique which blends two completely different photos of the same scene, resulting in a distinctive mix of high and low detail areas within the same photo. It was originated by photographer Michael Orton in the mid 1980's.

Macro is one of my favorite forms of photography. I haven't had too many photo ops lately, so I thought I would do a little macro on this first day of Spring.
