Hokey Pokey Magic

April 05, 2012  •  2 Comments

No matter how hard you try some times that magical light never appears.  When you're on vacation and the weather is blah what do you do about pics?  I still go out and shoot unless it's just pouring down rain then I come home to see what I have.  The weather isn't always going to cooperate with you all the time especially when you only have so much time to get it.  Some of these places that hubby and I go to so that I can shoot isn't always easy to get to and takes time to get there on 4 wheel drive roads.  We are not into traveling them in the dark hrs.

It was a nasty day off and on when we drove down this county rd 7 near Ridgeway, Colorado.  It was our last day in the area we were moving on to Arizona the next day.  I wanted the shot of the Sneffles Range and with the light I had;  it was just blah.  I took it anyways because I loved the stormy clouds above them, but you can tell by the pic below it was just a flat blah day.  This photo is straight out of the camera.

I've kept this shot hoping I could work a little hokey pokey Photoshop magic on it (yes I'm one of those photographers) to bring it to live.  Well I think I have finally got it the way I want it.  I think it's going to look real nice printed up on canvas on my wall!

To view: Stormy Sneffles Range you can find it in my "Out West Gallery" http://www.shutterbyme.com/p21595527 and my FineArtAmerica Gallery: http://lana-trussell.artistwebsites.com/featured/stormy-sneffles-range-lana-trussell.html
