Hello Weekend


Do have a place where you can just let go?  I've defined that any lake or ocean will do as a place of serenity.
 Serenity:
1.a disposition free from stress or emotion 
2.the absence of mental stress or anxiety 


Give your photos a Texture Twist!
  1. Layer the Gray Skies Texture on the overlay blending mode at full opacity 
  2. Blend the Tall Tale Texture on darken at full opacity too
  3. Create a clipping mask between between the two textures with [Ctrl Alt Click] 
  4. Open the hue saturation dialog box with [Ctrl U] and slide the saturation bar down
  5. Last add another layer of the Gray Skies Texture and set the blending mode to hue at around 75% opacity

  4. Nice photo! For me it's the hiking trails in the area, when it's just me and the dog out there I can just forget the rest of the world.
