Road trip to Police Lake and Waterton

White Turtle IV, fun to drive on road trips

I needed to get out on a road trip so I decided to head on a road trip to Police Lake then to Waterton. My plan was to do some kayaking but mainly it was just to get out of town for a while. I am starting to need some wilderness time.

A road trip is not complete in the spring or summer without seeing some Mountain Bluebirds.

It always seems to be windy down there but this day it wasn’t bad. I got to see a lot of scenery and stop in and visit some friends. It was the first trip for the White Turtle IV and gave me a chance to figure out where all my gear was to go. I have to stay organized when i am out so I can find things when I need them and with a new vehicle I have to find all the storage spots to keep me organized.

The day turned out a lot better then I thought it would. Lots to see and take pictures of and a nice drive.

I think I found spots for most of my gear as well.

Adjust images in PhotoShop

Using layers to adjust images in Photoshop

I am often asked what is the best way to adjust images in Photoshop?  So I thought it deserved a post on the blog to help you get the best images when editing.

Question: How do you do color and density corrections in Photoshop?

Answer: I use adjustment layers whenever possible.  Why? If you use adjustment layers then save the file as a PSD you can go back and see what you have done. You can make small adjustments from the last place that you adjusted without starting over. And finally if you get one image looking great and you have a number of others that need the same adjusting then you can drag the adjustment layer to other images.

So how do I do this?

1 – Open your image

2 – Select Adjustment layer (see picture below)
