Special

The sign at Summersville Dam was titled "A Special Place". I shortened it to "Special", as any time with Bob is special.

On Good Friday, we went back to Summersville (WV) dam, an earthen dam we had visited in 2005. The hydroelectric dam has a spill way and fishermen delight in casting their lines there. The picture at bottom right was taken in 2005. We were there at a different time of day and year so were able to do the self timer with the spillway in the background. I was back lit in the picture at the left, so I added a photoshop filter to it for effects. ("Filter", "Render Lighting Effects", "Omni")

I first cut a frame for the layout, but wasn't that happy with it, so I'll keep the cutout frame for later.

This is my 489th post. At post 500, I will select a winner for a nice giveaway. Any comments left until then is a chance to win! I appreciate your visits!

The frame that you cut out certainly would have looked nice, but the cheesecloth/gauze has a much more dramatic look. This so great Cindy - Have I told you how much I enjoy "traveling" with you and Bob. Thanks so much for allowing me to see your beautiful and interesting part of the country.

What a cool trip. The photos are truly amazing! I've never been to a huge dam like that, just a tiny one and even that one was scary to me, lol. I love the black and white with these photos and the white burst designs.
