A bit of sunshine to brighten your gray days. You there? Yes you - feeling blue? Well look here what I brought you. Some orange sunshine. Now that's better - there is always some orange sunshine deep down inside, you just need to let it out. And should you be finding it hard - well I hope this helps you a bit!
We all have those days don't we? Those days when even though the sun is shining in a perfect blue sky, a gray veil covers your mood. It could be the morning blues, the annoying colleague, that time of month (ladies PMS sucks!) or a bad turn in your kismet. Whatever it is and whenever it comes around, I for one am thankful to have someone to shower me with orange sunshine.
Allow me to be that someone for you today!
Citrus fruits have a way of lending everything a wonderful puckery and happy flavor. I love them in every way!

I used Photoshop Professional 7 to turn up the effects for this photo. I wanted to exaggerate certain aspects to give that sunshine "glow". I corrected the tone levels and curves to pump up the orange tones. Then I adjusted the contrast and brightness, once again exaggerating the levels slightly more than I would normally do. Then I used a big brush with low opacity to fill in areas that I wanted to give more light to.
I am still taking a short break from recipes this week. But I hope you join me on the weekend for a lovely French chocolate pastry!
