Thursday's This or That - Down By the River

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Last weekend I was feeling housebound and needed a break from feeling trapped in a petri dish. We've all been nursing colds for well over a week, and the weather had been dreary too. I drove down to the river and took some shots just for fun. A little photo jaunt is always good for lifting my spirits. Today I'm sharing a few pics from that brief excursion. As I captured them they were gray and dreary, just like the weather, so I warmed them up a bit in processing. I like them better this way ;)







Thanks for stopping in! Be sure to stop by Deb's place for more This or That Thursday:

Great pictures, Melissa. Isn't it nice to have a place where you can just breathe? I go to our Conservation Center, so peaceful there. Hope everyone is feeling better.

I really like the effect you gave them with your photo editing. I'm with you on enough of the dreariness! It's been awful around here.

Amazing how so many things that you may normally see all the time can look soooo beautiful from different perspectives. Makes me want to take a little jaunt out myself =)
