Week #37 – Theme #29 Sky Overlay

I took this picture at the end of May while staying at the Long Boat Key Club and Resort. For my Sky Overlay challenge, I added a moon from my own collection of moon photos. It was my first time trying to do a sky overlay. I watched a few YouTube videos and tried to follow the tips of fellow bloggers but still had trouble getting the box around the moon to go away. I finally gave up and adjusted the opacity as a way to blend the photos.

Week #34 – Theme #47 My Backyard

IMG_0838

This is my backyard a couple of weeks out of the year when I get to go to our cottage in Western North Carolina, the specific development is called Bear Lake Reserve. It is about even distance between Silva and Cashiers. We typically stay for at least a week and bring our dog. This time around, we thought we would go for the weekend and try out the new direct flights offered by Allegiant Airlines from Sarasota to Asheville. We are one hour southwest of Asheville. All went well so I hope I get to visit more often, although I can’t wait to have both my dogs with me when we drive up at the end of June, it will be my puppy Dozer’s first trip. If I shot a picture of my backyard in Lakewood Ranch, that’s all you would see is a small pool that the dogs have taken over. Once Fall rolls around and the trees lose their leaves, we have a better view of the Smoky mountains.
