Faded

The other day I walked with a friend around the lake. It was early in the morning and the fog was still hovering above the water, creating such a wonderful mood that I needed to take pictures of it. I love how the trees faded in the background. Back home I played around with photoshop a little, pulled almost all of the color out of the picture and, using texture and blending modes, created this. I though it fits the Inspiration Avenue challenge this week which is "faded".

This is a stunning picture, absolutely gorgeous!! Full of emotion, mystery & food for the imagination. But then also meditative & relaxing. Be a beautiful picture to hang on your wall.

Absolutely breath taking.

Sometimes I wish the fog would just come and help me fade into the background....
