1740 - Mining For Gold


I guess you begin to see a pattern here: this is again no current image, again it was taken from the same bridge as the images in the last post and in “1731 - Dream River II”.

Straight from the camera the image did not do anything to me, but somehow I wanted to try what I can make of it in Photoshop. I think the result is pretty nice and although it does not at all look like what I saw, it feels like what it should have looked like ๐Ÿ˜„

As to the idea of coloring, that’s clearly the result of my exposure to Roland’s images. Glad he has a blog at last ๐Ÿ™‚

The Song of the Day is “Mining For Gold”, either from the Cowboy Junkies' original 1988 “The Trinity Session” album, or from the 2007 “Trinity Revisited”. Great music, introduced to me by my friend Bill Birtch. I’ve linked to “Trinity Revisited”, but honestly, you can’t go wrong with either of them. Hear the original version on YouTube.

The colour and the detail is just magical, I love it.

Well, it took me a while, but now I'm pretty proud of this gold. Of course gold comes in all sorts of colors, but I think this one nails the clichรฉ ๐Ÿ˜„

Hi Andreas. I know you from Roland links. I like this photo. The color effect along with simplicity of the subject have created a nice abstract photograph.

How very bragging... how loud and narcistic this water comes along. I am just happy to know, it was your work that made it look that way. I think this Roland has a questionable influence on you. ๐Ÿ™‚ But for the quest to produce gold from water, you succeeded really good. cheers ยฎ

[...] you remember the golden water in “1740 – Mining For Gold“? Well, I’ve tried the same procedure with some other images, some of them may turn up [...]
