Saturday Skate in Central Park

Walking through Central Park on a mild January day my husband and I stopped to watch the ice skating. I knew standing there that I wanted to create an image that I could turn into a digital painting. The skaters in their colourful jackets, the buildings in the background…it was in front of me but the image I wanted to create was in my head.

The Bridge Path at Ein Afek

Nature reserves are abundant in Israel and on any given day are explored by tourists and locals alike. The nature reserve at Ein Afek just north of Haifa is no exception.

On the northern slope of Ein Afek lies a two-story building from the crusader period (history abounds everywhere in Israel) and from there you can hike through paths surrounded by dense foliage and riverbank flora. The path leads to a bridge path that snakes its way over the lake.

The Road to Peninsula Ridge

In my post last week I shared an image of Peninsula Ridge Estate Winery as seen from the vineyards. You can see that post here. Here’s another view of this beautiful estate from the road leading to the winery.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Sunday Afternoon on Lake Rosseau

I was in a canoe when I took this picture. Same day, same place to very different purposes. I, trying to find the perfect composition while trying to keep the canoe from bobbing up and down in the water and he finding the perfect spot to read while shutting out the rest of the world, including me.

I created a digital painting using LR, Photoshop and Topaz Impression. In case you weren’t aware Topaz Labs is running a promotion on Topaz DeNoise (it’s the noise removal software I use and love it) until June 30th. Topaz DeNoise is priced at $59.99 for the month of June, that’s a $20 savings. The coupon code is: JUNEDENOISE and you can click here to learn more.

Muskoka Living

It’s been along time since I created a “travel poster” and I thought this image from Port Carling in Muskoka would fit the bill perfectly.

Have a great weekend everyone.

A Tree Grows There

Here’s another image from my workshop last weekend where I shot only in black & white. If you missed that post you can find it here. I really liked this tree (which was in the parking lot by the way…so don’t put your camera way when you’re walking back to the car) and I wanted to give it more of an artistic treatment.

I used Topaz Impression to create this pencil drawing look. You can always save 15% by using the discount code ELPHOTO.
