This guy was being coy and wouldn’t come closer for his picture. I could see him through the trees diving into the creek to find his New Years dinner.

This photograph is by my son Nicholas. This was taken Friday along Boulder Creek. The water had crested and receded leaving this mud.

I took the picture below on Saturday. People weren’t the only ones out seeing the flood damage. A raccoon had been here as well.

I went to Boulder yesterday to get some pictures of the flooding. This bridge is adjacent to Scott Carpenter Park and was in my Blizzarded post. Here is the non-flood image.

I wanted to take the picture from the same location as the earlier one, but that place was under several feet of water. Also note the water has receeded. It was 3-4 feet deeper.

Here is a view from the other side of the bridge.

Bridge Over Boulder Creek

Bridge Over Boulder Creek

This picture was been in process for a long time. This was taken in March. I have always liked the scene and composition but there were a few technical difficulties to address.

  1. The lens filter had a bit of schmutz on it and it fuzzed up one part of the image.
  2. The sun is behind the canyon wall which is behind the barn. This caused a lens flare in the image.

I had to increase my editing skills in Aperture to fix these up.

In addition to my typical adjustments (crop, exposure, contrast, saturation) I used other adjustments on specific parts of the image. I used;

  • Burn
  • Tint
  • Retouch

Let me know if you can see where I worked the image.
