Captured at: Bayard Cutting Arboretum, Great River, NY.

Pictured here is another of the beautiful dahlias found over in the 2019 edition of the Bayard Cutting Arboretum's Dahlia Garden.

This one happened to catch my attention, as there was such a beautiful mix of white and lavender radiating out from the petals.

Bayard's dahlia garden is one of the finest on Long Island, and is typically in bloom from early September until approximately mid-late October -- or when the first frost of the season arrives.

The garden offers dahlias in all shapes, colors, and sizes, such as the one seen here.

"Lavender Bloom" is a non-HDR image that was processed using a combination of ACR, Photoshop and various Topaz Labs plugins (Adjust, Clean, Denoise, Glow, and Impression).
