Weekly Photo Challenge – Out of This World

This weeks Photo Challenge, Out of This World, has us “share a picture that takes us on a journey into the unknown.” Here are 16 photos with my interpretation of the challenge. First up are a couple of flora photos…

One of my favorite places in California is Point Lobos when it is overcast. The rocks look out of this world…

The last 3 photos are from an area that has shown up in TV shows and movies…Vasquez rocks. The formations have appeared in episodes of NCIS, CSI and Star Trek, to name 3. As for movies, they filmed Blazing Saddles and The Flintstones there. I processed the photos to give even more of an Out of This World look.

For a list of TV shows, movies, and music videos filmed there, check out the Wikipedia page here.

    • If you ever make it back to California, Point Lobos is just south of Carmel and well worth a few days scouring the reserve. Nature is truly an artist there, as you noticed with the rocks I showed.

      • I’ve been there once but don’t remember what I saw — seals or a lighthouse? or maybe I drove past. For some reason I see the sign in my head but I’m not pulling up anything else from the memory banks

The final image size is 6000 x 4000 @ 300 dpi. File size is 4.46 MB.

Weekend Freebie 05-11-18: Blue Grunge Texture

Each weekend, starting Friday evening, I will be giving away something for free; to start it might only be textures, but as I get more into (digital) mixed media, it might be digital stencils, digital brushes, or even an image that you can use. I hope that you enjoy creating with the freebies.

Today’s freebie was created from a photo of a table that has been used for many painted art projects, using a texture as a mask, a color overlay, and lots and lots of playing around to get the look.
