Tones on Tuesday #44

I haven't participated in "Tones on Tuesday" in quite a while.

The challenge "is to share one photo where you have altered the tones.
Such as a black and white, sepia toned,
selective coloring or colored photo."

After rendering this photo of my niece Sierra,
I decided it would be ideal for the Tones on Tuesday challenge.

52 Photos Project ~ Wk 20 {doorways}

Bella's challenge this week is doorways;
"An Entrance.
But to where?"

I was intrigued by this doorway;
I love the moss, the aged brick, the stains,
the sense of non-use ...
yet in my minds eye, I know
that this door opens into
a magical secret garden.

{Texture Tuesday}The Not-Necessarily Textured eDition

Roadside Wildflowers

Stanley Cemetery

There was a "Cutting Competition" in Moriarty this past weekend at the Rocking Horse Ranch.
Sponsored by the NM Cutting Horse Association, the competition is held monthly
and my friends from Roswell and Artesia compete.
Riders at the competition are from
NM, OK, TX, AZ and CO...
quite a large and impressive group of riders.

Only a 50 minute drive southwest of Santa Fe,
I went to watch and believe that there will be
championship buckles for my friends at the end of the season!
I took photos of them competing; taken without a flash in an indoor arena
which means I'm processing in RAW .... a daunting project .... that I'll enjoy doing, slowly!

Mandarin Orange #8 ~ Back at the Ranch

Maybe because we will be branding again in a couple of weeks,
I started playing with the ranch photos from the spring branding.

The photos' were anything but orange,
with a few tweaks in PSE, voila,
I had my post for Lori's Mandarin Orange Monday!
