22 Dec 11.  Now when one thinks of Christmas type images, if you are anything like me, you think of images with snow. Ideally images with lots of trees, snow, and something to go along with the trees and snow. But what if you live in an area which doesn't conveniently provide such a setting, even though it might be available with a reasonable amount of driving time. Well, one thing you could do is find an image that basically meets all the criteria, and then manipulate it in the form of a negative image. Now in this case the term negative isn't exactly like that old orange masked piece of acetate called a kodacolor negative, but rather the opposite of the color which was originally there. So for today we start with an image of a valley with lakes taken from Sunrise Point, a hairpin 180 degree turn, and parking lot, just about a mile from the end of the road leading to Sunrise on Mt Rainier. We then invert it to the opposite colors of what was there originally, and now we have lots of "snow covered" (white) trees along with some nice dark ones that look reasonably like deep green, and some interesting colored water and shoreline. Not exactly the longed for snow scene, but an image that is interesting in its own right, or at least so to my eye.
