Journey of a body on this earth

Up On the Hill


I haven’t been out to take pictures in forever.  I took three bracketed photos and worked it up in Photomatix and then Photoshop after that.  It was fun working on the image and I hope you like it. 🙂

Hopefully I’ll get back behind the camera more regularly soon!

  1. Nicely composed, seems like a summer day to me. 🙂

  2. Beautiful place! Love the perspective of this, I want to walk and lay on that grass and enjoy the sky!

  3. Fantastic results, Laura! 🙂

  4. Great perspective! I feel like I could just step into the photograph 🙂

  5. Such a beautiful shot, Laura. The colours are stunning and I love the wispy clouds in the sky. Love the angle too – makes the house look oh so inviting 🙂

    • Glad you like it Mabel, thank you. Just FYI, I’m sorry I don’t see your post in my stream. I may be missing it as the reader prevents me from liking after a certain amount.

      • I always like the vividness in your photos 🙂 I haven’t been blogging much 😦 Been busy of late but looking at a new post come Thursday 😉

        • I’m so glad you like the vividness. I’ve tried other things but it just doesn’t feel right to me. Aww…no wonder I haven’t seen you. I’ll look for the post in my reader. Thank you Mabel!

  6. what a peaceful and beautiful site.

  7. ‘I haven’t been out to take pictures in forever.’ i had a feeling this was the case.

  8. I’d live there. Lovely.

    • Hey! You’re back! I think I saw one of your posts in my reader awhile back. WP is preventing me from liking everything in the stream though which is completely annoying so maybe I’ve missed some since. And thank you. 🙂

  9. Great photo even more impressive since you used HDR to get a natural touch.

    • Thank you! I’ve thought about doing a video on it but it would be so long. There are a few different sections to the image to give it that “natural” *cough cough* look. 😀

  10. Very nice Laura – just the right amount of PhotoMatic’s where it looks very natural.

  11. I like very much that you’ve understated the extra processing and resisted the frequently-overdone tone-mapping that many find so tempting. I’m sure that one was great fun to work with!

  12. Laura, I like how you included the rock wall. Nicely framed.

  13. Such a wonderful and peaceful setting — great photo Laura. I espec. like what I think is flowering rosemary in the foreground.
