Enchanting Landscapes 9 - Violet Jungle

A slightly different take on my usual scene for this particular image in the series. Whilst editing my photographs of the Botanical Gardens in Oxford, I became ever so slightly carried away with playing with colours again. I love inverting colours on natural objects and scenes as it creates something so visually unusual but also beautiful. I think perhaps when you change colours you start to become more aware of form and shape, and particularly the many different shades of colour. The majority of foliage in this photograph in its original state was green, and you almost glaze over the vast majority of shades and see it only as green. Turn it purple however, and you notice violets, lilacs, indigo and lavender mixed with shades of cerulean and azure blue.
