This image was taken at the same time on October 10, 2009, and in relatively the same spot as Almost Home , but I was turned in the other direction, looking back the way I’d come. This area is within the Blue Knob State Park in Pavia, Pennsylvania USA on the extension of Pavia Road (4035).

Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200m vr Nikon lens, hand held. Shutter 1/400, aperture f/10.0, exp. 0.00, iso 1,000. Duplicates created in Photoshop to an eval of +3, +1 and -3 and processed in Photomatix Pro for hdr, then returned to Photoshop for the addition of two textures and some tweaking. Well, actually, considerable tweaking. How do the road workers know to put their obnoxious signs RIGHT where I want to snap a shot??? And as for the RVers off to the left … well .. thank heavens for the clone tool, LOL!!!

My thanks to Princess of Shadows at Deviant Art for the textures.

    You are so lucky to have such beautiful fall colors! Beautiful scenery and excellent added textures! As always, top notch work, Lois!

  • Hi Barbara!!!!! Thank you!!!! This year was iffy … when the colors would have been at their very best we had nothing but rain!!! This particular spot was on a level, elevation wise, that was high enough (on the one sunny day, lol) to have turned … but just a short ways higher up the mountain and all the leaves were already off the trees!!! I think that had to do with the tree species themselves and the side of the mountain because up at the house (and on a different side of the mountain) on that weekend, everything still wasn’t quite ready!!!

    Dazzling image, which brings a very warm feeling on this cold and rainy day.
    The processing is wonderful. Another sublime job Lois!!

  • Bless your heart … thank you so very much!!!!! This was maybe the ONLY sunny autumn day … thank heavens I slowed myself down enough and took the time to take a few snaps that day. Lots of rain here as well this season. Keep warm and dry!!!!
