Vintage Mission

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Here’s another view of the grounds at the Carmel Mission. This is the path that leads by the side of the mission through the graveyard to the main courtyard. I used a texture overlay (by Joel Olives ) to give the image the look of a painted canvas which I thought suited the scene. Let me know what you think.

I posted another ‘Mission’ image on my Facebook page over the weekend. You can click here to see it. While you’re there consider giving my page a “like” as I will occasionally post images there that aren’t on my blog.

Click on the image to enlarge (it really does look better) or to Purchase a Print.
