The mountains are calling and I must go. – John Muir
This one actually IS a photograph that I took, back when I lived in Colorado. I read a tutorial this weekend about various ways you can make a photo look more like a vivid painting, and I remembered this image that’s been sitting in my folder waiting for something fun. The original was pretty bland. Too gray. So… I thought I would give it a try.
The area where I shot this is beautiful though! This is a peek at the Arkansas River, running through a small town called Buena Vista. It was about 35 miles south of where we lived. I loved going there because it was at a lower elevation, so you could escape the cold and snow for a day, and have lunch on an outdoor patio.
I also forgot to mention something about my last post. I had to chuckle when I saw the colors I chose, because they reminded me of the old Pee Chee folders. I think I have back to school on the brain. I’ve actually been pretty anxious about it. Not stressed or scared, just more ready than ever… and the days seem to be moving as slow as molasses.
Anyway, I wanted to share the River photograph. I think it’s kind of soothing, so I am sending out peaceful vibes and tranquility.
I found that quote by John Muir and started thinking… YES, YES… I do believe it’s time for a short getaway to the mountains. I miss my travels! 😉
That’s about all for now. Have a beautiful evening! (or morning, or afternoon) ♥♥♥
