Digital Art Meme – Oklahoma Rock on Tulsa’s Turkey Mountain

Oklahoma Rock Topaz Glow Whisker Wires

The Oklahoma Rock is a landmark deep into Turkey Mountain. If you haven’t found it yet, and it is not hard to find, then you really haven’t had the full Turkey Mountain experience. Lots of legends about this rock. One or two of them might be true. Otherwise you have to believe that the Native Americans here before the arrival of the white people already knew what the state would look like.

It is also part of a popular geocache. It is an offset cache where you go so many feet from the rock in the direction that the rock is pointing. That’s great except the rock has been pushed over and propped back up so many times that that doesn’t work. I found it by searching in an arc of the required distance around the rock. Even then it took me several tries.

Fortunately for us Oklahoma Rock fans it is not on the property proposed for an outlet mall. At least for now.

I ran the photo through Topaz Glow. I have seven days left on my free trial. I still haven’t decided whether I’m going to buy it or not. They should just let you use it for free until you decide to pay it. Don’t you think?

    The whole photgraph is interesting and the rock especially so … not only does it look like Oklahoma, but I see the very large face of a ground hog on the front of it … Sorry, I am always seeing things that aren’t really there. Guess in some peoples book that would make me a little nuts, Ha! Nicely done, Yogi …

    Interesting story about the rock. I had to look up geocache —had no idea what that was. I like the earthy colors, too.

    Re: Glow.
    I had planned to buy about 3 or 4 Topaz effects —was trying to keep it under $200, but someone told me they always have a great discount on Black Friday. So bought the entire set of of 15 for about $250. (I think the regular price was $470.) Then, they came out with Glow. Since I had the entire set, I got it for the introductory price minus an additional $10. But I have to say I don’t find much use for it. I don’t like the really strong effects for most things. I like the more subtle ones like you used above. Instead of fiddling with the controls, I usually duplicate my image on a new layer in Photoshop, use the Glow effect on it, then I change the opacity on that layer until it seems to be “just enough.”
