Playing With My Photos
This image was taken on a road to the east of Tuolumne Road in Tuolumne County where, several years ago, there was a very large fire, the Rim Fire. The area was reseeded and the hills are showing new growth now. I wanted this image, however, to show the starkness of a scene after a fire. The trees at the top reminded me of toothpicks sticking up from the ground. I used a textured background to further enhance the starkness of the image.
The images below, which are more cheerful, were taken at the Ironstone Winery in Murphys, CA. Each images was processed and then, in Photoshop, a border to suit the image was added. Each border is unique and cannot be duplicated as the border itself was not saved.
