I found some new toys to play with in Photoshop Elements.
To start with I wanted to show you another image of the Olive-sided Flycatcher.
Isn't this a handsome bird?
O.K. on to the new toys.
To some of you this may be old stuff,but I guess Im a slow learner.I just found these Grayscale Masks at About.com.
This is a fun way to add a border to the image.
A couple of days ago we had some thunderstorms pass by.
As the sun was about to set,the light on the now distant clouds was so lovely.
This image is taken on our yard,again,I added a mask for interest.
Note the Willow on the left,it was at the top of this tree,where the Flycatcher was sitting.
Here is one more shot of the same thunderstorm clouds.
I love all the details in clouds like this,and the orange glow of the setting sun just enhances that.
A third version of a Grayscale Mask was used.

Though for today:
Remember,there's no cloud too dark,
For God's light to penetrate.
If we keep on believing,
And have faith enough to wait.
