Spots of Autumn by kayaksailor Spots of Autumn by kayaksailor
:woohoo: This photo was given a Best of Show at the 2013 El Dorado County Fair!!


edit - had a couple comments concerning a few points of 'over blown' fog so I did some more work on them since da seemed to accentuate it...I think it looks a little better, but as it wasn't shot in RAW there wasn't too much I could do...

Cleaning files...came across this shot from a few autumns ago. View of the fog creeping up the valley from my deck :love:

I've found it really is a small world :D  So where "about" do you live?  Rolling foothills with oak forests cover lots of California :giggle:

The road that runs from Pleasant Valley over to Green Valley?  Exit below El Dorado Ave?

Don't you just hate neighbors like that! I seem to share your opinion of a couple of mine, I wonder if they are related or know each other! ha ha :)

Thank you so much!  It was brought to my attention a few days ago that this photo was altered - a horrible major color shift (the green grass was made to be orange :faint:) and my copyright cropped off...someone then posted it on the site "Pinterest" where it has been shared and is now spread across the 'nets :cry:  I know that is a risk we all take but some how it feels worse knowing that the altered and ugly version was shared - I just wonder how those that liked it would feel seeing the original!!  And if they would like it better :shrug: I've reported it to Pinterest and Google+ so hopefully some of the shots will be taken down, but there's not much more I can do...

Sorry to hear that, hope they will take it down soon.  Nothing worse than people stealing your hard work. :(
