    Three more from Algonquin Provincial Park last fall.

    I'm in the process of trying some new software and revisited these three landscapes, amongst others.

    THose colors are just incredible. Beautiful falls short as a word.
    One of my favorite short stories was about a woman that treasured her furniture and decorations. A man talked her into taking them outside to "air" and once outside she saw how shoddy they looked compared to the grandness of nature. YOur photos remind me of that story.

    I know that feeling. I spent the first 22 years of my life in the same place and could never see why anyone would want to visit there. Now I know... lol

    Thanks!
    Thank you very much Smkie! :)
    Thanks, Grammy
    Thank you very much, Zoom.

    To be honest, much surgery went into these. Filters before hand (GND and colour intensifier, IIRC) and a fair bit of post-processing afterwords. As much as I'd like to take credit for getting it all before-hand, it wasn't until the post-processing that the details and colour came out.
    Thanks Saje!

    Thanks Allie. I'm hoping to make the same trip this fall (or get up around Lake Superior Provincial Park if time permits.) I have to admit, I hesitated going there due to all the people Algonquin attracts, but I'm itching to get up that way again soon! :)
