Mother Nature has finally graced us with some summer weather. I know many of you are sweltering now, but we get such a short summer here I like to have some heat for at least part of it! One thing I love about the heat is that it gets me up and going earlier in the morning. I think that morning is the most beautiful and peaceful time of day, and this morning Cricket and I were walking early. I was looking for a photo opportunity for this week’s #52Snapshots of Life photo challenge – the theme is “Nature“. We walked up our street which we haven’t done for a while. There’s more traffic than there used to be on our street, but if we time it right, it can be pretty quiet.
The mountain in this photo is Mount Cardigan, which overlooks most of our town, and is a popular place to hike, with wonderful views. I was trying to capture the dew on the grass, I’m not sure I accomplished that, but I loved the way the sun was beaming in.
I did edit this photo a bit in Photoshop. I sharpened it as well as increasing the contrast and the saturation. I wanted to bring out the blue of the sky a bit more (my cell phone, which is what I took this with, does not capture colors very well). How did I do?
