Western Landscapes and “N” stories voting

The action for the Alphabet Challenge “N” Stories voting has been hot and heavy these last few days. A good thing to see and likely due to Sunday’s noon deadline, when the poll will close.Just a friendly reminder that — if you want to participate — you have until then to vote.

And, no, not by mail because The Orange Blob is continuing his efforts to turn the once-mighty USA into a Banana Republic, this time by deprecating the Post Office. As a nation, we’ve come a long way down from our lofty ideals.

For example, we once thought a functioning and reliable Post Office was crucial to our country’s future . . . now, not so much, at least if you listen to certain people. Like I said, every day, there is less and less to calm the nerves and soothe the soul (I mean, if I had a soul, which I don’t). 

I still somewhat trust the security of the poll, so if readers have yet to do so, they can still — but not for long — read the stories and cast a vote for their favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge N-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link

So, Western Landscapes and sights . . .

Sometimes I’m an idiot. (Hmm . . . Only Sometimes?!) I really like that processing but I forgot to save the finished product as a preset, and I don’t remember the exact steps for that “look”.

Here’s a shot from Garden of the Gods (sans actual gods) in Colorado Springs, Colorado . . .

I don’t mind this look . . . but it’s different from the first. Then again, the scene is not the same. Mucho grande mas red rock, whereas the first shot is an expansive high desert scene.

Another shot from the Garden of the Gods. I’m always amazed by the ability of some trees to literally grow out of solid rock.

Again, not a bad shot or awful processing, but it’s not like the first photo.

To show you what I mean, here’s a zoomed-in photo of the tree in the first photo and processed the same way (which, again, I can’t now duplicate) . . . .

That’s my favorite of the set . . . in no small part for the dragon growing out of one of the branches.

I’ve had a fair number of posts either relating or about Garden of the God. To peruse them, click HERE.<<link
