Twisted by LAlight Twisted by LAlight
The coolest part about learning new processing techniques is going back through my massive collection of RAW images that have never been touched. It's been very cathartic to breathe new life into these old images and to finally be happy with them. :) 


Douglas Falls
North Fork Blackwater River along the Blackwater Canyon Trail
Thomas, WV

Beautiful colors.  It's interesting to see how different your falls are out there- not as slippery and mossy as in the NW. A gorgeous image.

Thanks Jean! They are very different, depending on where you go. Sometimes they're even more slippery out here because of the muddy bottoms of the creeks and rivers. I very much prefer the boulders and moss of the NW!

Well, you'll be moving out here in a few months, right?

Yes, just a couple more months! This has been the longest wait of my life!

I guess- it's been forever it seems! So you'll be here by the end of June?

It HAS been forever! I think he and I are both very tired of flying back and forth. He just flew back on Tuesday after being here for a few days.
Yes, the end of June is my plan. :)

This is great LeeAnne. Did you do a sort of soft glow on it? The compositions is great, the colors are great, the exposure is great. Thanks for sharing! Makes me really want to come back out to WV!

Thanks so much, Matt! Yeah, I used Orton Lights on it, but lowered the opacity a good deal.

It looks like such a soothing place.  I could easily imagine spending an afternoon here... and feeling much better for it.  Lovely!

Believe it or not, it's not a terribly relaxing place! The water smells horrible due to the acid pollution from mining (that's why the rocks are orange) and the rocks are slippery as heck and not at all easy to get around on. But I'm very happy the photo evoked that soothing feeling...that makes my day, Tris. :)
