This is a sage plant that lives on my windowsill. I’m not sure why I bought it as I don’t often use sage when I’m cooking but I expect the plant is glad of this.

I had been trying to take pictures of the plant with a savage rainstorm as the backdrop but failed miserably. I took a consolation snap when the sun reappeared.

The trees are from a copse near Hitchin where I live. I took this picture on a lovely walk with my delightful girlfriend.

Both images have had the saturation reduced significantly with the exception of the green channels which were reduced less. It’s all too tempting to ramp up the contrast and saturation in order to get images that pop with colour so I though I would try the opposite.
