Many Thanks to WordPress

Hmmm… Just who is that gray-haired old man?

Featured on

Now this is a pleasant surprise. I’ve been featured twice now on and this time for a subject near and dear to my heart. Many thanks to the folks at WordPress for hosting my blog and for bumping up my end of the month stats.

Here’s the final image for this month. Back in the good old days of B&W film, this shot would have taken hours and hours to create in the field and in the darkroom. Using Adobe’s Lightroom 3 and Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro, it took only minutes. And to be perfectly honest, I would never have gotten a shot with this much contrast and sharpness using my old Canon F1-N and 75-200mm FD zoom.

Ain’t technology grand!

  1. Fantastic image Jeff, no skies like Texas skies.

    One nice thing about a beard is I can still believe my hair is black since I don’t have to look everyday to shave. 🙂

  2. I love Nik Silver Efex too, Jeff. What I’ve found though is that you still need to start out with a good to great image. Your image today reflects that (pun intended!). Have I told you lately that I love your clouds? I am sure God paints them with his brush right over Texas.

    • Thanks Sabrina,

      The Lord and I discuss this almost every evening. So much beauty to enjoy and share. What more could we ask for?

      Have a great weekend!
