Patiently Waiting

or Waiting Patiently.

What would you title these two images?




Click on the image to see them bigger.

I'm working on a new look, kinda vintage dreamy, kinda watercolor.

What do you all think?

Winter Fences

Well our big snow did finally happen. We received about 14 inches here at my house. Some places not to far away received more.  We were right on a fine line.  Now the wind is blowing and its very cold. 

I managed to trek about today to find a few images.

the cold and wind didn't stop this Amish lady from doing her laundry

Blustery in Black & White

I thought the black and white edits suited these blustery images.

We had about 5 inches of snow overnight Thursday, March 9th into Friday. Then Friday afternoon the temperature dropped and the wind began to blow and there was still snow squalls about. 



 the longer I sat in this spot the harder the wind was blowing down across the hill to my right.  There was a windmill off to the right that I was watching. It was really turning in the wind gusts.

We here in Pa as well as some of you I'm sure, are under a winter storm warning. 

Looks like we finally may get the BIG ONE. We shall see.

UPDATE.....YES WE HAD THE BIG STORM.  Spring has NOT sprung here in PA yet.

Sky Replacement

One of the neat things about PS that I like is you can replace a blown out sky with one that has pretty color. 

This is my first try at a sky overlay and I have to improve a whole lot yet but I want to share with you all.

after 

Kind of neat huh? Of course I would rather make the image when the sky was beautiful but we don't always have that option if we like the scene.

Don't forget to change your clock one hour ahead this weekend (Saturday night) too

Wishing you all a safe and happy weekend.

Barn Bonanza

I'm cleaning house tonight or should I say I'm cleaning barns.

Oh and these are best if you click on the image.









 this is the farm where my Dad used to work. The stuff on the left of the image is from a building that the new owners tore down. My Dad would have been sad. He spent alot of time in the farrowing barn birthing little pigs.



 this is the original of the one I shared here on Thursday that I had used the oil paint filter on in Photoshop.

Ok.....So I'm Addicted

Yep I'm addicted to the Oil Paint filter in PS and I've only played around with 3 images. 

Here is one I just shot today. 


How totally cool is this.  
Make sure you click on the image to view it bigger. 

Hope you all are doing well. Not much going on in my neck of the woods. Just waiting for warmer weather to come back again. 

Last Friday when I posted it was 75 degrees, its 28 now going down to a low of 20...so winter came back for a little bit. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
