Skies and Gardens


1. Night at the Gazebo, Front Royal. I accidentally pasted the next image over this one in Photoshop and it looked kind of dreamy. I faded that layer and converted to Black and White. (Yes, I'm using Photoshop again. I really like having layers and multiple features.)

2. I took this through the windshield. Frank was driving and I saw this nice sky. We were on US 340 near Lake Frederick.

3. It's tulip time!

4.  This purple phlox is on a small hillside beside the road near Toms Brook.


5.  Did Caesar make heads roll? No, the staff at Glen Burnie took down these busts for safety reasons. It seems that children sometimes try to play with them, so they will be re-secured in ways that aren't likely to tip over.

  7. Great images. I use photoshop in spurts. It requires just a little more horsepower than what my laptop can deliver.
