Enhancement of the light - Spring morning at Hidden Lake
Sometimes the mind forms an impression of a scene that is more vivid (or more something, or even less something) than the camera records. That was the case of this view of morning light pouring down a hillside on the far side of the little lake, and lighting up the new leaves of the willow tree on the near side. I played around with several Topaz Lab filters/effects, and will probably continue to do more playing around. Of the ones I have tried so far, this is my favorite. A version of the original ( http://smu.gs/1fugKLy ) along with any filtered versions, can be seen in my 'Fun with Filters' gallery https://arctangent.smugmug.com/Photography/Creative-Alterations/Fun-with-filters/10668106_75xhP9)

I have a small window of free time today that I can use for posting a picture in my DP gallery, and for leaving a few comments. My friend is home now. We have had a week in which to establish routines for his care and feeding. It is proving more challenging than I imagined it would be, but it is still wonderful to have him here. I keep telling myself it will get easier as I get more used to doing what needs to be done and as he recovers his strength and mobility. I'm not sure I will ever get used to all the doctors visits away from home and all the in home visits from care professionals. Not sure I even want to get used to that.
