I saved my favorite photo of the week for the last day of the week. I love the combination of the colours in this image. The yellows of the grass against the blues and pinks in the sky. The image was created using Photomatix Pro and layering that image with the original raw image, along with a bit of tweaking in Lightroom. I kind of want to be able to write more about this photo because, as I say, its one of my favorite images that I processed this week. But the time is getting onto 2 am when I write this and I am feeling really tired.

Cattle Point is a great little spot to wander around. Accessible just off the Uplands park area in Victoria, British Columbia it offers great views of The Chatham Islands, Discover Island and San Juan Island located in Washington state.

Here is the original image

For anyone who actually reads down this far on the page I want to give an update on how the blog is progressing. So far things are pretty much how I want them. BUT, I am trying really hard to get a lightbox set up so that the images can be viewed with less distractions. The issue I am having is I upload the image as a Featured Image in WordPress. By default Featured Images do not work in Lightboxes. So I am trying different lightboxes in an effort to find a workaround to this issue. Hopefully I will have one before this post is posted and you won’t even be reading this message. That is assuming anyone is reading it anyway. yeah its late. Time for bed…

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
