Bixby Pecan Orchard

Sunday afternoon was just too nice to stay inside and watch football games. Heather went to her exercise class and I took son to visit a friend who lives deep in the woods south of Tulsa. So I had some time to myself and my camera.

Bixby Pecan Orchard Topaz Glow

The scene above is a pecan orchard near the the Tulsa suburb of Bixby. Bixby has pecan orchards, truck farms, grass farms, and the most expensive real estate in Oklahoma.  There is something about a well tended pecan orchard that is very appealing especially on a beautiful warm winter day with a pretty sky.

I used Topaz Labs new “Glow” program to process the image. Somehow it really enhanced the visual entanglement of the branches. The scene reminds of ballet dancers with their arms in the air. Well maybe I’m getting carried away with myself.

I’m on the free 30 day trial at Glow. So I’m trying to decide whether to get it or not.

    Now that you mention it, I can see the ballet dancers, too! I think this image is going to stay in my head for a while…

    You have created a stunning picture — I love seeing the results of your experiments ! so I vote you buy the program. We saw our first pecan orchards when we stayed in Texas one winter and I too loved the look of the bare trees…. and the crunch of the fallen nuts as we walked. They were everywhere around us.
