Mandarin Orange Monday 20

Welcome again to Mandarin Orange Monday. My pictures this week are based on photographs I took at Green Patch. You might remember I transformed a painting for Mandarin Orange Monday which was inspired by rocks there. This time it is rock pools  – which I have always found fascinating. I remember at school we were taken on a Geography excursion at a beach and what did we do? Examine the rock platform and the rock pools and weather pits. Apparently there is a difference, one is u-shaped and the other v-shaped in cross section. My wonderful geography teacher Mrs Bookes would be proud of me if she knew I was writing that.
This week I experimented with my new Photoshop filters, Topaz Labs  and Color Efex, for the first time. So much to learn but so much fun!

  1. Lori, these are awesome photos. I wish I had something similar in my Photoshop Elements. At least I don't think I have anything that changes parts of photos.

  2. My goodness you were prolific today and they are all beautiful in different ways. I love the contrasting colors with the oranges. I am going to have to look into those new PS toys … they seem to do very interesting things as does the artist 🙂 Have a wonderful day Lori …Andrea @ From The Sol
