This morning, I wanted to write something here, but got so caught up in reading other stuff so the time just flew away. We had a snowstorm over the weekend — it is long gone, but the icy high winds remain. We had some errands to run, Costco, amongst others. The thing about Costco is that you always seem to come away with more stuff than you originally planned!
When that was finished we drove through the park. In some spots, where the wind can’t really get, there’s still snow on the bows and branches. For once, I managed to catch a blue jay, that didn’t have a peanut in his beak!
Came home, processed my pictures and decided to try a tutorial I found this morning [here]. It’s an excellent technique and the guy is refreshing to listen to but I don’t think it’s suitable for all kinds of photos. I’ve only tried it twice [once here on my blue jay photo] and another green one, but I think this works better if you have more of a solid color as a background in the original photo. Anyway … here goes my Jay.
