This lovely gazebo, which is often used for weddings, is on the mountain at Blue Knob, Claysburg, Pennsylvania. I took this image on the evening of August 14, 2009.

The original image was taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens. I had a lot of fun tinkering including hdr in Photomatix and subsequent Orton technique on the image in Photoshop and embellishments in Corel Painter 11.
