Processing my raw files from our day trip to the Torbay area, I came across one I’d taken of a giant tortoise, taken with Nikon D90 & 55-200mm@180mm, f5.6, 1/125s,iso400. 19 layers in all!
It was going to be just a straight process but after listening to my old favourites The Cocteau Twins, and having to dash around like a headless chicken (which I’ve been doing a lot lately) and try and fit in half an hour here and there to finish this off, it sort of evolved into something very surreal!
Background is courtesy of Psyberartist, jetty courtesy of LaPrimaDonna, boat courtesy Jody McNary, Hare courtesy Susan E Adams,moon is my own, and texture courtesy of Rubyblossom. 19 layers in all and I’m now thoroughly relaxed and had a wonderful time creating it and letting my imagination run riot!!
This time of year, I think we all need to take a bit of time out for ourselves and just relax, and this was my round about way of just chillin’ :-))

    Oh Lissy – this is pure magical heaven – it transports me to another place, another time. Love the surrealism here – one day post your “straight” version but for now, I am so pleased to look at this – it is extremely uplifting and highly amusing – it made me smile – LOTS! Sue

  • I just went with the flow today Sues, the music helped a lot I have to admit xx
