Beautiful Brown

I took up my dyeing challenge yesterday and brewed up these colours.
A combination of warm colours like red ochre, waratah, desert pea, kangaroo paw, sandstone and citrus resulted in a rich blend of autumn tones. Can you tell from the names that Landscape dyes are made in Australia? Meanwhile Spring seems to be well and truly on its way down here. I'm seeing more and more flowers on my daily walk.
Some photo-editing skills are on my wishlist. The skein is just a little bit more earthy in person  than what is showing up on my screen. I'd be grateful for any suggestions about where to start with learning to adjust my pictures. I'm using a PC and don't expect to convert to the Apple family any time soon.
