open to possibilities......




















My contribution to Kim's texture tuesday. Theme for today is 'OPEN'. I took this photo of Lake Michigan 2 weeks ago when we were experiencing a very mild winter day. Temps were in the upper 50's and the sky was just beginning to turn a pale pink as the sun was going down. Unfortunately, I left the beach area before the sunset was in full bloom. My daughter captured it on her iphone and I should've used one of her photos to alter. Instead I chose one of mine and played with the hue & saturation as well as levels and added a warm photo filter.  I added 2 of Kim's textures: one layer of embrace and 2 layers of evolve. Then I added text.
What better photo for the theme 'open' than the wide open spaces of a huge body of water.
Live your life creatively~ And always be open to possibilities!
