Having A Highland Moment.

I was 'talking' to Ferret on Facebook this morning, about various different parts of the country.  As we talked, I found myself looking at images in a folder named 'Inverness Source'.  And for the last half hour or so, I've been looking at some of these images, tweaking them a bit, and generally having fun.  I'd forgotten how much I enjoy doing that.  I use Paint Shop Pro, rather than Photoshop; someone recommended it to me, years ago, and I've stuck with it.  Cheaper than PS, and similar in functionality, at least at the level I use it at...

I started with a view, untweaked; my friend Alison used to live here...

Funnily enough, in the same folder, I found an image of my own view, the one I live with, here in Norfolk: they are not dissimilar in some ways...



I've probably said before, that Norfolk and the Highlands are very similar; it's just that in Norfolk, the scenery is horizontal, while in the Highlands, it's vertical.  You can see how flat our view is, compared to the incline in the Highland hills in the image before it.  I love both landscapes, but find the Norfolk one easier to live in, somehow... its openness seems to encourage me to be open, too.

But I digress... no surprises there, huh?

Then, I started playing with images...





Fun.  One or two of these, I suspect, will eventually be printed out on Bertha.  But not right now... I need to get on with my soon to be born grand daughter's quilt, and the Christmas presents I'm working on.
