2017-04-21: Feel Good Friday

I’ve gotten these posts done ahead of time, as today I am heading back to Africa for another amazing adventure.  I am so looking forward to being out in nature, being close to elephants, and frankly, being warm (the winter has dragged on and spring has been slow to start).

I thought I would share a few of my artistic impression images, the ones that I edit to look like paintings or that end up a bit over the top.

I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful day.

2017-01-15: Artistic Impressions

I’ve had another great week of wildlife viewing around home, and I think I have gotten some really nice images, but I’ve been caught up with other projects and haven’t had an opportunity to do any review or editing.  So, I’ll have to do a good catch up next Sunday, but for now, I hope you will enjoy a couple of my artistic impressions of the fox that visited last week.

Wishing you a great week ahead 🙂

I’ve had an amazing week of wildlife viewing so far, and I am really looking forward to sharing that on my What I’ve seen this week post on Sunday.  But for today, I thought I would share one of my artistic impressions with you, since it has been a while since I’ve done so.

This was created using the Topaz Simplify plug in for Photoshop.

2016-12-19: Monochrome Monday

Something a little different for today’s Monochrome Monday.  During last week’s full moon, the moonrise happened while I was out on my afternoon walk with Spencer.  I hadn’t planned on taking any photos, but it looked so lovely rising above a farm in my neighbourhood, I had to try to capture a few quick shots.  It was also -28C and standing still for any length of time was not going to happen (neither was spending much time without my mittens on!)

Handheld with a fairly slow shutter speed, I managed to get a clear shot, but it was so dark and noisy, it wasn’t going to work as a traditional landscape shot.  So I played around instead, and came up with this interpretation.  It’s very dark and moody, but I liked it and thought I would share.

Have a great week everyone!

2016-08-30: Artistic Impressions

It’s been a busy week as I’ve been getting ready to head off on holiday, and I haven’t been out taking many photos. I have seen loads of wildlife though, including 5 deer at one time, a bear, and the hairy woodpecker family.

Since I have nothing new to share this week, I thought I would post a few more of the photos I call my artistic impressions.

I hope you enjoy them, have a great week!

2016-02-16: Artistic Impressions

A couple weeks back, I edited an owl photo with an artistic edge, turning it into something more like a painting than a photograph.  (You can see here if you missed it).   Now I know that’s not to everyone’s tastes, but I found it a really fun process, something that I would like to play around with once in a while.

I don’t know how often you’ll see the Artistic Impressions post title, but when you do, you know it will be something a bit out of the box.

I hope you enjoy my artistic impressions!
