header art # 6 – 122411





being yesterday was the first full day of winter, thought it was probably time for me to replace my fall foliage leaves image

this is an image of my first snow fall here in burlington, vermont –

i got lucky 😉


Red Berries with Snow


Original Image

the original is quite a picture, used it for my post, “First Snow – Original Inspirational & Places Poetry & Video

i guess i should qualify “quite a picture” as quite a picture for me 😉 since i haven’t since much snow in my life time 😉

but i do really like the contrasts and patterns


Text Tool in Photoshop

besides the obvious cropping, and a very tiny bit of lighting adjustment, the major thing i did was play with the “yoga-adan” text on the image

once i’d chosen the font size, placement, and color, playing with the text adjustment options was kinda fun

clicking on the shadow box effect brings up all kinds of adjustment options, lengthening the shadow, the shadow color (which decided i liked red rather than black), and the type of color overlay

from there, other adjustments included textures and gradients and such, none of which i used

i did experiment with the stroke option, liked the inside stroke effect, but eventually opted for adding a bit of the outer glow effect, with a reduced opacity



a reduced fill on the color intensity brought the right glow-ish pink i liked to the border


i hope ya’ll enjoy the current winter header, and time will tell if it’ll hold all winter, or other enticing images prod me to do another 😉

happy holidays everyone!
