Best on Full Size

Another view from my favorite spot, on top of Blue Knob Mountain, all seasons resort, in Claysburg, Pennsylvania. I know it’s at its best in winter, covered in snow and happy skiers, but all the rest of the year, it’s mine alone.

Image taken May 21, 2011 with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm Nikon lens. My thanks to Jerry Jones of Shadow House Creations and to Florabella for the textures.

    terrific shot Lois. what a beautiful place and you have captured it perfectly. Great use of textures (like always)

  • bless your heart, Dave, thank you so much. I took a lot of shots that day … this one with the shed is one I’ve never gotten quite right in the past. I think I finally got the comp the way it should be. Now, I have to tell you, fuzzing up the detail of those clouds took a LOT of deep breaths … but I think the need to establish mood finally won!!! I’m really happy you liked it!!!!!

    Great title and great photo with such a dreamy quality. I’d live here for that view! a fave.

  • Hi Lenore, thank you so much, sweetie!!!! This is actually a ski resort … and the shed is used by the ski patrol and ski instructors sometimes. But situated so so perfectly. If it were me, I’d add on (a lot!!!) and make a lovely cafe out of it … that view is worth a million bucks, any season of the year!!!!!!!!!

    Such a pretty scene, Lois, and I love the inclusion of all those wildflowers in the foreground. Just such perfect texture work also. Looks like such a pleasant place – full of enchantment – and, as is your usual practice, you have conveyed a storybook sort of appeal to us all lucky enough to see this gorgeous image.

  • Thank you so so much, sweetie!!!!!! What a truly, truly lovely thing to say!!! I was trying to do the hand-held hdr thing, but that’s not easy. Fortunately, I got off several that were fine by themselves. It really is such a lovely place … and I think I like it better when the skiers and everyone else are gone and I have it all to myself!!!
