Your Sunday Best #6

Had great plans for Nancy Claeys (A Rural Journey) 'Your Sunday Best', and that plan was to take some photos of spring!

I know better than that!  Spring has not sprung, except for in my imagination; just because the sky is blue and the sun is bright, it is still cold, and no matter how hard I try, I can't change the timing of spring in the high mountain desert!

What I did find though was new spring green nettles on the pines, a sure sign spring is coming . . .

Spring III
All photos were rendered by blending various filters in PSE, and Spring I has a new grunge texture (#8) by Nancy Donaldson at all pulped out.

Spring is sprung
Da grass is riz
I wonder where dem boidies iz
Da little boids is on da wing
Ain't dat absoid
Da little wings is on da boid

Photo Art Friday

Again, choices on what we want to post for this weeks "Photo Art Friday"; a piece of our art or a piece of abstract art made from our photos.

While my original intent was to create a piece of abstract art from some Alaska photos as I started playing around I became so enthralled by what Bonnie's texture, "Dreams of Spring" added to my photos that I couldn't take it any further!
