I sometimes over process images, there is a definite skill with that and for me a steep learning curve. Then sometimes I take a photo and get it into the program and I think that is overdone but, actually, nothing was done to most of this image. It was taken a few moments before sunset as the last of the rays hit these beach grasses.

Remember the Alaska posts start tomorrow, Sunday, with Wednesday, which is followed on Monday by Thursday etc. I will NEVER keep this all straight for the 120 plus days.
