Part Eight Today’s trip was to Arches National Park at “The Fins,” where the rock formations are flat triangles, hence the name “Fins.” It’s a short drive from Moab, but the clouds overtook the sky, so no night photography and the sunset was a bit drab in color. Sometimes, the weather works against you, IContinue reading “Visiting Utah”
The photo below shows a small wooden boat parked in the Thermaic Gulf in Thessaloniki, Greece. My trip to Greece was about seven cameras ago, I don’t use years for my photos; just how many cameras have passed between now and then. This photo is so old it was under 1MB. I have since purchased the TopazContinue reading “Old Made New.”
Part Two. Always have backup sites to visit. The plan was to visit various waterfalls along the scenic highway, but no parking and 5-mile hikes ended that plan. This means the only waterfall photos I have are from the first stop, Latourell Falls. Photo Tip: Don’t focus on what is in front of you; lookContinue reading “Visiting Oregon”
Part One. I fly into Portland, Oregon, Internal Aiport, and I know where else I would fly into Portland. In next day I was driving along the Historic Columbia River Highway, which parallels Interstate 84, viewing Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. This area is jam-packed with waterfalls, mountains, valleys, trails, Art Nouveau buildings, andContinue reading “Visiting Oregon”
Moxie State Park is in the State of Maine on the east coast of America, and it contains Moxie Falls, Maine’s tallest waterfall at 90 feet or 30 meters. It’s an easy walk with boardwalks to take in the view. The below photos were taken in October with the colorful autumn foliage.
Collection of photos of different types of Jellyfish.
Arctic lupine or Lupinus arcticus, growing along the road in Canada. These beautiful flowers grow up north where the air is crisp and clear; they tend to be light lilac to dark purple. The first time I saw Arctic Lupine was in Iceland, where the plants were imported to help with erosion and feed theContinue reading “Purple Haze”
A childhood throwback, a brightly colored carousel. Walking around Tours while on vacation in France, and saw this technicolor memory. I then used PhotoShop filters to create artwork. The scenes around the top of the carousel reminded me of the 1st Marry Poppins movie when Bert is drawing on the sidewalk. The title comes fromContinue reading “Retro Technicolor”
An early photo of mine that I still love. I was walking around the harbor of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the morning and I saw this small rowboat anchored in the water. Usually, the rowboats I see are plain white or brown, so the colors really popped when I saw the boat. The early morning lightContinue reading “Row, Row, Row, Your Boat”
Applying those Neural Filters to my 10-year-old Cheetah photo, I’ve been having fun! The following photos are of the 80s-created animals.
I’ve started fooling around with Photoshop’s art style filters. Below is my starting photo, an old shot of a tiger in the Zoo. The art style filters are “Neural Filters” in the Filter drop-down box. Then select “Style Transfer, and select the different styles in the Presets. The last step is to play around withContinue reading “They’re Great”
I love watching jellyfish, they are graceful and ethereal creatures but they do sting. Best to view it from afar, or in an aquarium. The below photos are from an aquarium but they have been edited to capture the full effect. The jellyfish were in a blue-lit tank, blue light keeps the algae away andContinue reading “I Don’t Think You’re Ready For This Jelly!”
