Sun Flare Party



I am joining Tracy at Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures Sunrise, Sunset or Sun Flare Photo Party today.

I shared these photos before but I thought that they would fit right in with her party. :)

This sunset over Lake Michigan was taken last summer,
I only lightened a bit in Picnik.

A bit of Sun flare down at the marina.
I just added a bit of color and edited it with Picnik.
One day I will get Photoshop and learn how to use all the yummy textures and actions.




Until next time...... enjoy your day!!!


Hugs!!

Terrific photos! Sorry I've been missing, viruses and a trip of Island have prevented me from commenting.

I hope you don't mind I post this scientific discovery here, as photos are art! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/art/art-news/8500012/Brain-scans-reveal-the-power-of-art.html Aloha Raliegh

I am a TOOOOOOOOTAL fan of sunsets. Total fan. I could stare and stare at them. In fact, I do. I squeeze every last drop of loveliness out of the views I see.

Nothing quite compares to a Lake Michigan sunset (I'm pretty partial though;)) Gorgeous pictures, as usual, Michelle! I wish I had your knack for photography...my sunsets never quite turn out.

Enjoy the warmth!! I hope you have a fabulous week friend!
