How has your week been? Mine has been good but tiring. My husband started a new job and I started the new semester of school. We have a new schedule which involves us getting up way to early. It has been an adjustment and I am just glad it is the weekend! Here is hoping the kids sleep in tomorrow. I missed a couple posts this week so I am going to use this one to play a little catch up.

First I ran the picture through HDR toning. Then I decided to give it a different crop. I cropped out the entire bottom of the picture to focus just on the cliffs. Then I added a texture and done.
