It's actually a blend of two layers - one "natural" and one with the Topaz Labs stylistic effect (which I thought was interesting, but too over-the-top. And I did cheat - while it's pretty representative of the national forest around here, it's actually my backyard (which if you are being polite can be described as "natural" - or rather, ignored. Gardening is knocking down the weeds/wild grass that attempts to grow under the pinon pines a couple of times a year).

P.S. Les - My hubby says he doesn't miss Manitoba winters at all. He much prefers our days that often get up to the 50s and 60s and where the snow melts before it gets that dirty grey look to it.
I knew your husband was from Canada....didn't realize he was from the Keystone province. Was he a Winterpegger ?


It is cold in the winter though and I wouldn't mind a winter that has temps of 50-60 +...but I find I'm outside a lot....dressed for it...I find the Pentax equipment takes the winter here, easily in stride....no malfunctions since 1969....when my shutter froze open, in Saskatchewan on my 1968 Pentax SLR (S1a)...an hour in a warm room...got it working again.
