Lentner Farm Supply

I might do away with describing ‘levels’ of Photoshop manipulation in my photos. They’re pretty much always over-cooked. This shot, for instance, had decent tonal-range. At one point. But that’s been ‘modified’. In Adobe Photoshop. Boom.

Red River Valley of the North

Cookies? Pretzels? Over-saturated landscape?

A little south-east and a bit above where I grew up (as the commercial airliner flies).

Dr. Rumack: “Can you fly this plane, and land it?”

Ted Striker: “Surely you can’t be serious?”

Dr. Rumack: “I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley.”

I’d love to darken that big flower in the lower right (it’s really competing for attention), but apparently my computer (and thus my Photoshop access, etc.) has moved on to greener pastures. ‘Technology’. Face-palm.

*NOTE* Flower has now been burned-in…  for a small thing it’s SO much better!

When we were up north last summer I finally caught this barn in the sun. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Another shot from summer… have a great weekend, everyone!

Man with Bullhorn: “It’s the authorities! We got you surrounded!”

Ulysses Everett McGill (cowering in hayloft): “Damn! We’re in a tight spot!”

Grain Bin

I was a bit surprised how many people correctly guessed ‘grain bin’ in Friday’s cryptic post! I mean, Laura nailed it in the very first comment, and Lenore was quick to follow! As were Juana and Robert (although I suspect they had a little help from Google – cheeky monkeys)! 😉 Many more folks were on the right track, too… good work, everyone! I’m impressed!

This challenge is now officially in the can… or the bin (so to speak).

Bechyne, North Dakota

Today’s Action Chanel 5 in-computer forecast: 90% chance of fake showers.

I wonder if I could ‘make it rain’ with ‘fake 100 dollar bills’?

Totally Kidding. There’s no need to alert those rather humorless dudes at the Treasury Department. Again.
