This picture was taken off the road next to a field on 33 Road, just north of F Road. It is one of a very few I took somewhere other than my balcony.

That morning I took out of here in sunshine to get pictures of Mt. Garfield dressed up in its layer of clean snow. What I didn’t count on was not being able to easily find a place where there was no telephone poles or wires, no railroad crossing signs, no stop signs, and no trees obstructing my view. Somehow I stumbled upon this location and took a picture I’ve used several times. The original is much taller and includes part of a barbed-wire fence and shadow in the foreground. I like that picture a lot.

I can’t now remember how I got this watercolor effect. The complete original was done this way, and I have a sense that I painted color and detail back into a filtered version to achieve this look. The layer in Photoshop offers no clues though.

Today I am thankful for friends. We get to choose them and they become more family sometimes than family.

If I thought I had that much to do with it, I’d say I have chosen well and wisely. But, I suspect that is not the case. Alone, I don’t have that kind of wisdom.

My life is better because I have the friends I do. And my life is richer because I love them so much.
