These photos were taken in 2008 on a very hot fall day. It was so clear, and so bright, that I couldn't get many good shots. Even the dry grasses were glaring! So I decided to re-edit them with a little antique look and a little HDR look. I started out with a Photoshop filter called Find Edges...and just a bit of that helped with the glare in many of them. Then I added Perfect Photo via antique and HDR effects.
Such a special place, the ghost town of Bodie was threatened to be closed at one time due to California's economic situation...but is still being maintained and protected by our state at this time.
