Accidental Aqua

 Our backyard is surrounded by really tall trees, I stood in the yard after shooting the dogs playing and just aimed up and turned and snapped the tops of our trees, see above collage. nothing special at all.
Out of camera
 I was standing under this pine cone, only 6 feet over my head, and just Snapped and for some unknown reason the photo's came out with aqua tint.

 Pure accident.   I love the color and so does Hubby even though it is not True Color
 OF COURSE I DID! Play I mean  Now I am The Accidental MadSnapper
out of camera
 Above out of camera, below with Replace Color Filter that I had no idea was there until a blogger told me about it. Please whomever it was, comment and tell me. I can't remember who emailed me the info.

I love your shots of the tree tops, they look pretty special to me. The shape, textures and color variations of trees always capture my eye. And pine cones are very cool.

Very pretty Sandra. Don't you love unexpected photo surprises? And the pups look like they are having a very good 'chin wag' below. ;)

Great photos.
How did you make the collage? It's a very nice way to display your photos.
The last three are much like the ones used for the HDR (layering) effect.

I'd LOVE to have trees in my back yard. Heck. I'd love to have a back yard. :)

First of all I love the quote on top - so true.

I really enjoyed your pictures - that is my favorite color in the whole world and that just made the pine cones and pine needles just perfect!

Color filters????

Sometimes, the picture which one produces, is not the real-thing? Even when just snapping?

STOP! -grin- I can't take any more info, for now. I want to continue in my blissful ignorance, and just snap.

WOW, you said you might be changed, and boy you have!!! I went into ALL your new tabs and read every single word. I like it that they are to the point, easy to read, and have lots of good pictures!! The Jake pictures are something else. I had known the story, but these photos you picked out are pathetic, though they tell the story well. I do love the one of Jake with the sunflower! Then I came back and read your new post here. I love the color, but the trees as well. Blogger has some kind of filter changer??? Let me know about it when you find out. I love the aqua pictures better than the others. what do you think of the new comment forms? Wonder what else they are changing, you never know what you will find with Blogger.

Rose said...

We no longer have big trees in our yard...I miss them until we get the horrible winds and then I am thankful I don't have to worry any more. But I still miss them.

Reena Walkling said...

I love those surprises when they happen!

Ann said...

Accidental but a happy accident. I do like the color tint to it. Of course I always love the look of pine trees too. Wonderful picture straight from the camera and the ones you played with
