Summer Tracks

Summer Tracks.

This was just behind Main Street, but it could be anywhere or in the middle of nowhere. The hills are green but on a day with glare like this the color is almost gone.

It was at this point along the tracks that I thought of the painting “House By Tracks” that I also posted today.

I did fool around with filters and such: Desaturate>Photo Filter Deep Yellow>Diffuse Glow, then some layers with feathering for the edges.

It’s only June, what will become of August?

Just for reference, here is the original photo.

    • Thanks! I did it as fast as I could so I wouldn’t lose the image in mind, but after I cooled off from my walk–I don’t have air conditioning here!
