One Four Challenge Week 2 – Feb 2015

This is my Week 2 of the One Four Challenge – hosted by Robyn G of the blog, “Captivate Me.”

For my edits today, I used the photo editor, iColorama, and added blue coloring to the water.

  1. Loved the week 2 result πŸ™‚ But the image is an awesome one, every click is I see from you for these 4 week challenge is terrific πŸ˜€

  2. Yup we have mountain lakes and rivers that has the water that EXACT shade of blue, great job PJ πŸ™‚

        • I think you can join now, you will be a week behind, or you can submit two different photo edits. (One for the first week and the second for the second week). Or just do the 3 weeks for this month. I think it is up to you.

  3. Not only does it make the water look nice and blue, but all the other colours surrounding the river are a lot clearer, very nice, Joy πŸ˜‰

        • Yes, I am doing well. Just ready for warm weather! Hope to get out this week and take some more photos because it is suppose to be in the mid 60’s. For some reason, sometime in February spring will come visit us for a week or two and then whammy us with another snow storm. In the meantime, I will take that week or two because it is better than nothing. πŸ™‚

          • We have been really lucky for winter weather in London, although I probably speak to soon. If it’s 60’s next week you can go outdoors to take some more lovely pics. Pleased you’re well

          • I went to the river yesterday and took some photos of the geese there. I think I might go back again today and take some corn to feed them. It was nice to get out of the house and the weather was so pleasant!

          • Yes I do. I have a hold of her leash while I am trying to take photos so it makes it clumsy for me especially if she is pulling on the leash. I threaten her and tell her I’m not bringing her again if she doesn’t stop pulling the leash, but I am too wishy washy to follow up. Haha!

          • Bria likes to “read.” I say dogs are reading when they are busy smelling the smell of other dogs. Of course, since the river park is a park, there are a LOT of other dog smells!

  4. Love that blue! There are many glacial silty rivers in Alaska where this scene plays out. It is really beautiful. The light in this image is special too! Great job.

    • Thank you so much Carrie! My daughter and her husband and children lived in Palmer, Alaska for 15 years. They moved to Phoenix now. Wondered if you live anywhere close to Palmer?

      • Oh I visited Palmer a couple of times. I don’t live in Alaska anymore, wish I did most days although that is fading since moving to Northern California. I lived in Fairbanks, AK for 6 years with my husband, he was going through graduate school. We explored and adventured a lot and saw as much of the state as we could. It is quite a place.
        We now live in Arcata, CA near the coast and the redwoods, it is beautiful and raw in its own right, I am happy here, haven’t been able to say that in almost 9 yrs. So, that is GREAT!

          • Yes, it is not for everyone. I totally get that. With darkness brings an opportunity to go within and to form strong bonds with friends. People are very real there and seeing the sunlight change so dramatically from week to week (7 min each day lost or gained) it felt very alive and I embraced that.
            I didn’t know how much I appreciate it until I left, we moved to Los Angeles, huge change. Happy I found a middle ground. Arcata is rural, real, raw and beautiful without the temperature extremes and isolation. Good fit for us πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
