A very old cottonwood tree in Capitol Reef National Park. This shot was taken in the fall of 2008, but I just reprocessed this one.
Thanks for all the nice comments on the "Imaginary Worlds" shot. That is not a real place. I created that place using a number of photoshop effects, plus a plug-in called "Flood," which allows you to put water into a shot that had no water at all. I started with a shot from near Capitol Reef National Park and, after processing it in the usual way, I added the water effects in "Flood." If you'd like to see a few more of these kind of creations, there are some here, on the last two pages of this gallery: http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Capitol-Reef-National-Park/6600760_zdMiv#799683660_mhiLJ, as well as at least one on the previous page.
Hope your week is going well and that today provides the opportunity for you to do something you'd really wanted to do.
