I thought this might be an appropriate image for this week's theme.


This image was taken on Hwy 22 north of Dickinson, North Dakota during the summer of 1996. In PS I used the auto level tool... fooled around with the fade and then just left the image as it came out initially using the auto level. I was just struck by the contrast between the greenish hue of the landscape and the muted blue of of the sky. Just seemed to capture in my mind a hot summer's day and the wide open spaces of the Dakotas.

Interesting processing Jan which has rendered that dried, washed out look so common in summer in many parts of the world. Wide open space indeed,
David
