This is the view that I grew up with. Then, it was Long’s Peak (Twin Peaks) as I grew older. Been so spoiled with magnificent views my whole childhood. It really effected me. Possibly, the leading determining factor in why I am who I am. That is saying a lot, you know, God & all. But, the landscape is God, so… Just seeing sunrise/sunset/storms/clear skies/night skies/snow capped/dry…… what a beautiful thing to behold everyday of a young life. I love the mountains.
Not sure how these are viewing on your screen, all digital devices are different, or can be. I am going to print these this afternoon to check them out. I made them with canvas style prints in mind, hopefully paper looks good too. Stay tuned! Enjoying messing around with the effects on photoshop. These are not just simply applying the setting & walking away. I used multiple layers, varying the brush settings, blending them together & altering colors, etc.
If this isn't the most beautiful bench view in the United States, please, show me one better!
The Yellowstone River moving swiftly around a bend as it runs deep & heavy out of the Park towards Livingston, MT. This area is called Paradise Valley & clearly lives up to the name. On one side you have amazing peaks with a light dusting of snow from today's rain showers & the other side is narrow strips of farm land being irrigated by the cold waters of the river. It is absolutely amazing views 360 degrees.
We camped just down on the river of this picture, but the bench is just sitting out there, kinda in the middle of nowhere. Somebody needs to thank whomever thought that would be a great idea & did it, cause it was!
Well, it is now 4am.... Up all night working on my website, uploading pictures, changing the format, wondering what the hell am I doing, say to myself "dang I need another computer to do all this faster....." So, the sun was sun was setting last night & it started to rain. It was really beautiful lighting as the sun was shining through the evening shower, this picture does no justice! I tried the wide angle lens that I have, but ended up using my old trusty Nikon 24-140 f4 that has all the bells & whistles Nikon had to offer like 6 years ago, lol. Anyway, here's your moment of Zen!
