Hard Scrabble....

Riding the White Pass railroad, outside Skagway, Alaska.  We came across this lonely little pine.  It seems the closer you get to the Arctic, the harder it is for trees to grow tall.  
This little guy was trying his best.

Gratitude...Texture Tuesday...

Reflections from rain on the driveway.

Thankful appreciation for favors received.

Living in Central Texas, in the midst of an "Exceptional" drought
is certainly the emotion we feel whenever there is any sort of rain.

This week the prompt for Texture Tuesday is Gratitude.
Also, we're asked to use two different textures from Kim.
I used three.

Created with:
My image
Kim Klassen texture~~Autumn Burst @ soft light 100%
Kim Klassen texture~~Scripted Autumn @ Multiply 45%
I did this twice.
Kim Klassen texture~~Word @ Multiply 100%
Did this twice, too.
Desaturated a background copy,  blend mode overlay 100%

If you'd like to see other intepretations of Gratitude,
hop over to Kim's for more Texture Tuesday.
