1. Minimalism

Happy 1-1-11!  A new year, a new blog, plus a new challenge….I can’t believe I am doing this for my 3rd year….and either can my family!  🙂

Well, while the east coast has been buried with snow and the west coast drowning in rain, us Nebraskan’s  have been getting slammed with freezing rain and cold, cold  temperatures.  Today our house was warm with family and friends, but outside was frigid and unbearable!  I did take a quick ride around the lake to get out of the house and noticed how the tree branches and bushes stuck out among the white snow and ice on the lake.

I processed this in lightroom….adjusting the white balance and clarity…and then added a vignette.  I then finished off the framing and text in PSE9.
