September photo processing

 The oil slick processed in many different ways in Photoshop today.  This is a photo from the Can-Am Model T meet last week end in the Langley, B.C. area.  It was a very well organized and enjoyable meet, run by Mark and Suzanne.  Despite the rain I managed to get quite a few photos to add to the album on my web page, if ever I get the time.  Right now it is more fun playing in photoshop.
 A September sunset taken from  the back deck.  It really was this colorful.  Just added a bit of levels adjustment.
I am slowly getting photos from our trip to the Prairies sorted and processed.  Most are shot from a moving vehicle.  This is a roadside water snapshot from somewhere in Saskatchewan.  
  You can see the Qu'appelle Valley, Saskatchewan, in the far background.
 This is Reed Lake, in Saskatchewan.  A huge lake that is in the Chaplin area of  southwestern Saskatchewan.
More of the Qu'appelle Valley from Highway #6 near Southey, Sask.
I really like the impressionist painters style of this shot.  It has the shimmer of the distance on a hot day in Saskatchewan.  I like the road leading way back to the background showing the distance perspectives and how the train divides the near from the far in photo.

Aside from the Can Am we were away on the Island Challenge run on the September 12th week end.  The weather was wonderfully sunny, and we had the Island's beautiful scenery on the old island highway to Courtenay and back.

I have only had a few days with time out in the garden, and am not getting as much done as I would like to.  We have had some rain and the garden is looking a bit better.  We are removing and pruning back some of the over grown trees and shrubs, which is time consuming work.   The weather forecast for next week is for sunshine, so perhaps I will get some time out in the garden.  The michaelmas daisies, cyclamens, heathers and a few other plants are in bloom.  There are lots of bees in the daisies.  I have a delphinium and a montebretia in bloom on the deck.  I have not put in any Fall annuals, but the chrysanthemums in the stores certainly look terrific.  It has been a good year for figs with all the heat this summer.  We have eaten 40 of them with a few more to ripen on the tree.  Delicious.
