Melting Snow by joysabin

Melting Snow

This reminds me so much of a hand-tinted black and white. I'd use Q-tips and photographic oil paint apply then cotton swab off and let dry. Computer edits are less smelly- no turpentine aroma.

After the record snow from last month, we now have lots of new and reemerging creeks as well as water channels around town. This is on the other side of Lower Lake Mary's Dam which in the 5+ years that I've lived here has just been nothing more than a marsh. The wildflowers should be amazing this year.
That’s interesting, at first glance I thought that you were playing in IR but then realized that some of the lower foliage is green so probably not. As usual your photo is producing an enticing mystery for me...as well as just being very pleasant to look at.

I too immediately thought IR, then looked again. Love the colours you've captured here, so unusual. Great image.

@gardencat This is an IR, I forgot. I played around with my standard IR edits but couldn't get the trees to not be pinkish. I went to another program, the one that came with Windows 10, and ended up with this. Some days are just edit days.😁

@jo38 Thank you so much for the fav. I am wonderfully happy about the extra water this year.

@henrir Very appreciative of the fav, thank you kindly.

@golftragic My bad, it is IR. Some days tags elude me. I had to climb through a fence that wasn't there last year to get this. Worth it but won't be doing that again. Truly appreciate the fav.

@joysabin No worries, it's a great shot whatever.

Wonderful image.

@joysabin SO interesting... the white upper branches and that shade of blue in the sky said IR, but the way the lower tree foliage looked green was confusing. I'd like to try that other program that you used here but I've gone all MAC now so Windows 10 isn't going to happen here.

@yrhenwr Funny how smells/aromas touch the heart so clearly. I am very humbled by the fav, thank you.
@gardenfolk So very grateful for the fav, thank you.
@samae The post processing of IR is fun and challenging. I try to make a copy with the snip-it tool of my edits. Thank you so very much for the fav.
@jenp Thank you kindly for the fav. My fear is that my drive will fail but as is often said, they all fail, its just a matter of time. Prints fade too so I guess its all equal. I just love having fun with photography.
@jernst1779 So very grateful, thank you.
@bkbinthecity Thank you so very much.
@30pics4jackiesdiamond This storm just gave us so much snow and now that the shoveling is over, I'm grateful for the beauty.
@taffy Thank you so very kindly for the fav. Climbing over the chained gate was worth it.
@ziggy77 Truly appreciative of the fav, thank you.
@blueberry1222 It the little out of the way spots that really shine. This is below the Lower Lake Mary dam.
@pistache Thank you so very kindly for the fav.
@shannejw Truly grateful (now) for the extra snow.
@graemestevens Humbled, thank you, greatly appreciate the fav.
@haskar So grateful for the fav, thank you so kindly.
@gardencat Post work with IR can sometimes give me the strangest results. The channel swap from red to blue sometimes has a mind of its own. So very much that I don't understand about the process but I'm still learning. I've not used IOS except for the iPhone but you'd think that they would be similar.
