Matting and framing in the studio today. It’s always exciting and reassuring to see how an image can be transformed with a simple mat and appropriate frame around it.
Today was definitely a good day and in keeping with this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from Cheri I have also put the above images in a Mesh gallery for comparison. If you have time I would be interested in your input comparing the two galleries in the pole below, particularly as I am not yet sure whether the Mesh gallery is the way to go. I suspect the Mesh developers would be interested too.
As promised, our second unforgettable day visiting Antelope Canyon in Arizona. After the Lower Canyon with Ken’s Tours, posted on Friday for Cheri’s Weekly Photo Challenge, we didn’t think it could get any more spectacular. Well how wrong we were as you will see in today’s Mesh Gallery of photos from Upper Antelope Canyon originally posted on April 20th. I hope you enjoy them if you are visiting thechangingpalette for the first time, and for my wonderful followers I hope you agree that they are worthy of the re-post.
Antelope Canyon, Arizona – Part II
This was a never-to-be-forgotten day made even more special by our Navajo guide, Kim, from Adventurous Antelope Canyon Tours; thanks again Kim. The feather from a great horned owl found on our visit to Owl Canyon with her became the treasure of our trip and now takes pride of place in my studio back home.
For this weeks Photo Challenge, Cheri created a Mesh gallery highlighting her glorious summer’s day along the US Pacific coast, and invited us to recount a similar memorable day of our own. I have chosen one from amongst many that was truly a day we shall never forget, our visit to Lower Antelope Canyon, Arizona in April this year, which I originally posted on April 19th using the traditional WordPress gallery format. I thought for today’s challenge I would create a Mesh gallery for the first time, as Cheri has suggested, and would be interested in any feedback that compares and contrasts the two formats.
Antelope Canyon, Arizona – Part I
For the amateur photographer that I am the day was like having a buffet table full of delicious desserts all in one sitting and feeling overwhelmed by all the flavours that come one after another. Having seen so many photographs online of the Canyons that always seemed almost unreal in their beauty to find oneself finally walking through this amazing natural wonder words seemed to be insufficient to describe the feelings of awe and amazement. The following day we visited Upper Antelope Canyon, which I will post in a day or two.
