Late afternoon, in the Autumn, brings cooler temperatures and with it along comes the myst. The afternoon sun shimmers in the distance as the shadows get a little deeper with each passing minute. It is time for the fairies to come out to play. At first they stick to the shadows so that any late hikers will not step upon them. So if you are in the woods on a late afternoon, make some noise so that the fairies will know that you are about and watch out for the deeper shadows.
Original image taken at Mill Creek in Southern Oregon. A texture by Distressed Textures was added by using layers in Photoshop CS6. The image was then processed in Vivezia by Nik software by Google. Then I used the Photoshop OIl Painting filter to enhance the texture. The birds were added with a photoshop bird brush by Obsidian Dawn.
