FTs in Fruita, Utah’ (Part of Capitol Reef National Park)

I have just returned from a six-day ‘Road Trip’ to Southern Utah, where I visited three National Parks and five Utah State Parks. While I was in Capitol Reef National Park, all of the old fruit trees were blooming at the time. Part of this National Park used to be an old settlement where 8-10 Mormon families used to live. Long ago, they planted apple, apricot, peach, and plum trees in this fertile location. The fruit orchards are now being maintained by the Park Service.

I cropped this photo in Lr, and then took it into Topaz Studio 2 where I added the Orton Effect filter to give it some softness, and then added a vignette.

Spring is finally starting to blossom out in Idaho. Had to work hard to select the red flowers, but I did it!

Looking up at my shirts from the bottom of my closet. All edits were phone edits: square crop, a bit of vignette to soften the edges, and Palma filter.

I experimented with several options - which is fun. In the end, during golden hour on this glorious day on the mountain, I put my phone on the ground in some tall dead weeds. I was surpised to see the color shift in the sky. I also used the wide angle option.
