Oh, the joys of PhotoShop!! This originally began as a shot of a cow pasture in our neighborhood, but had some farm machinery next to the tree. So I removed the tractor, added a texture of weathered concrete and added a great picture of a hawk that Homer took when we visited Fripp Island, S.C. earlier this year. I liked the mystical look when it was finished. Hope you enjoy it!

Taken in Penrose, North Carolina with a Panasonic Lumix 12X digital camera.

    It just looks like a foggy morning. This is so beautiful. I love the “ghostly” feeling.

  • Thanks so much, Lori!! I took this driving home from an early morning doctor’s appt. and just had to pull over and take a pic!

    Interesting how images come about, it’s a whole trip through photoshop fairy land. Love this one, Tibby, very creative! Dee

  • Thank you so much, dear Dee. It really is so much fun to change an image through PhotoShop – even though some of my changes have been hysterical and would never make it to RB!!
