Winter at Rough & Ready Creek

_DSC9712B_32bitSteve, Pam, and I were off to a high water showing of the Rough & Ready Creek near Cave Junction, OR, in January of this year.  Most of the year, there is barely a trickle of water here.

Rough & Ready Creek, Oregon

My last photo shoot of 2016 was at one of my favorite places, Rough and Ready Creek near Cave Junction, Oregon.   Pam Cone and I took a day trip up there a couple of days ago.  I’d been talking about it for years.   The temperature was a couple degrees above freezing.  We were prepared and didn’t feel it.   The day before, where I’m standing was under water.  Great timing!   There is high fog in this picture and the mountains in the background are obscured.

Happy New Year!

Turquoise Tree Frog in Rose

This was a photograph of a green tree frog in a rose in my front yard that I converted to B&W.   I then colored it with only three colors using the new glazing brushes in Corel Painter 2017.   Turquoise had really been on my mind this morning, hence the choice of color.  The overall image was a little flat so I added the luminosity and saturation of the original photograph to complete the transformation.
