Summer Wanes and Beyond Layers

On Wednesday after work, Edster and I, along with my stepdog, Bruno, went down to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to walk the towpath, enjoy the weather, and of course, take photographs!  The towpath goes along the former Ohio and Erie Canal and has become the jewel of Ohio…33,000 acres of green between the metropolitan areas of Cleveland and Akron.

Kim challenged us, on Day 60 of Beyond Layers, to use scripted textures and a special recipe to create some warm, scripted images.  Her inspiration and God’s gifts of nature just on the cusp of the weather changing to Autumn winds, produced these three.

Waning Summer



It was a beautiful walk while it was in the 80s and fair, you could sense the green in the leaves were getting tired and the trees on their last leg just before the Autumn wind down…and bright goldenrod left no doubt that change of the season is just on our doorstep.

With gratitude,

  2. These are beautiful, Denise!
    Yesterday I was asked by a very good friend of mine, to do an image for her son and his wife to be, for their wedding. My friend would love to have a quote from ” The Prophet” of Kahlil Gibran, and two trees in this image, and you just gave me the inspiration how to do this in a beautiful way!
    Thank you so very much, Denise!
