Day 100 – Grizzly Peak Spring

GrizzlyThus ends the 100 days of winter project. I’m looking forward to moving on to other projects. It looks a lot more like winter out there today with more snow on the mountains but I concluded long ago that spring was just winter and summer duking it out. Let the games begin. Next week looks more springlike again.

Day 97 – Lion

So I was really iLion2interested in the juxtaposition of this lion and the shadow of an oriental yard art piece. There are lions on both sides of the porch. I have a notion that someone from New York who is a library fan may live here. In any cased I processed the first one, which was shot head on, in bright colors and I liked it but then I saw this one and said “Oh, black and white” and when it was done I liked this one just a little more.

Day 95 – Iris

As I said yesterday, the bIrisest part about winter is watching it come to an end. Spring is not quite in full bloom but it can be surprising what you find out there even in early March. I found this Iris almost ready to burst forth on my camera walk last week. I wasn’t sure it really needed a texture but thought I would just give it a look. I found one called “Color Burst” which utterly transformed this from a pretty image to (IMHO) a beautiful work of art.
