More from our family trip to Woolaroc last weekend. We left Tulsa and it was all warm and everything and by the time we got to Woolaroc about an hour later it was chilly and windy but we had an interesting sky so it was all worth it.
goose Trumpeter Swan I encountered Wednesday night. He was very cooperative and even posed for me. When I got a little closer he decided he had enough and waddled off into the water. Telling me to back off the whole time.
Thanks to my friends DrillerAA and EGCamera girl for setting me straight on what species this is.

This is what I call the Bear Fountain located on the Arkansas River Park Trails. I caught it one morning recently after dropping the kid off at his school. I used Topaz Labs Impressions software to create the painted effect.

I cheated a little bit today. I went back to last Fall to find my photograph for SWF. This is a scene on Turkey Mountain’s new Zoi trail. I am not cool enough to know what “Zoi” means but it is a nice trail that doesn’t get a whole lot of traffic mainly because you have to hunt a little bit to find it. It is one of the few places on Turkey Mountain where I have seen deer in the last year or so.

Son and I went hiking Sunday. Used to be I would get way ahead of him, now he can get way ahead of me. I don’t think we were ever meant to walk side by side. Such is life with a teenager.

Appeal to the Great Spirit is a sculpture in Tulsa’s popular Woodward Park. I redid my digital photo using Topaz Labs Impression program using one of the “Colored Pencil” effects.

Something I can’t get enough is gas lights. We have them at work alongside our parking garage and I have taken many photos of them over the years. I love the warm glow and romanticism of the the lights.
I processed this photo through Topaz Impressions using their “Colored Pencil” filter.
My brother Bob left this morning to head back to Corpus Christi. We had a great time while he was here. We Thanksgiving together, ran in a race, went hiking and geocaching, watched a couple of football games, and had a few beers.
He’s a patient guy. Maybe too patient. I was telling him that he needs to check my blog from time to time just to see what I say about him. He says he isn’t worried about it. So as he was leaving I said, “Hey Bob, since you are wearing yellow get under the tree.” He did so I decided to see what I could do with it.
So I ran it through Topaz Impressions and decided on this. I don’t know I think he’ll have to come back next year with the yellow shirt.
