This weeks From Clicking to Creating is a catch up on where we are, and a photo prompt post.
We left Utah on Thursday and headed for Idaho. We knew we could boondock in Idaho, at a place we had stayed last year. We love Wyoming, and the Jackson area, but it’s not the best for boondocking spots. So we came to the Snake river for a couple weeks instead. We got settled under some trees, which at the time seemed like a good idea.
The 2 Lil Owls prompt this week is, Out the window. This was looking out the window, kind of, I did stand outside to get this shot.
The Dogwood 52 prompt this week is my favorite, Photographers choice. I can do what I’m told and follow the prompts, but I prefer to do my own thing. Just ask Al how much I like being told what to do. Lol.
Anyway, I started looking though my photos to try and get some kind of an idea what I wanted for this week. Photography is slim to none when we are in Utah, so I had to use some photos from earlier in the year to create something. I’ve had this idea in the back of my head for a while, it’s not ground breaking, but just something fun.
I took these 4 images into Photoshop and created a layer mask for each one, so I could get the image I wanted. This tutorial on the Adobe website explains layer masks, and how to use them waaaayyyyyy better than I can. I’ve never tried to combine this many images, so it was fun to experiment, and I learned quite a bit in the process.
After a month at the Imperial Dam LTVA, we’re on the move again. Last Friday we did the dentist trip to Algodones, Mexico. We both had cleanings, and the Dentist advised Al on the tooth that he was worried about. Crown probably next year, and since a crown is only $280 there, it won’t be that big of a deal.
Saturday morning we set off with the idea of going to Oatman, Az. again. My hope was, there might be new babies since we had found that one in the wild. We found a place to boondock that would be close to drive into Oatman the next day. The area around Oatman is pretty nice, big canyons, and lots of jagged mountains. We had rain almost all night on Saturday, and woke up to cloud covered canyon walls.
