Letters in Nature Theme #169

Posted in Photography on August 31, 2011 by paintedmeadows

The letter V!!  I used my Lensbaby composer on this shot.  Then for processing I first adjusted color slightly and then used PSE9 and Topaz Adjust to apply the Smooth and Flat filter to draw more attention to the branch.

My son Aidan, always in motion!  He was having a great time splashing through the water as the sun set behind him.

Sandy Theme #251

This is the beach at Mcleod Lake by Whitecourt, Alberta.  I love the little bird footprints along the shoreline while the sun was setting to give it that orange, warm feeling.  I also had to throw in a picture of our little 3 1/2 month old Westie, Fiona.  She had a great time in the lake and the sand as you can see!

Our campfire!  Maybe a little more than warm but oh so relaxing!!  Kept away the mossies that Ron asked about!  lol.  Actually, there weren’t really any around which was really nice!

Nautical Theme #195

I guess I don’t need to say much except I used PSE9 with Topaz Ajust HDR Sketch filter.

This beautiful little branch caught my eye as we were sitting around the campfire.  I thought it was so beautiful in the ray of light.

Orbs Theme #209

I hope these count as orbs.  This was the sun setting over Mcleod lake just outside of Whitecourt, Alberta.  I just stepped out of our campsite to get this shot.  It was so beautiful!
