10 Oct 13.  Leaving Wallace, ID in the rain, we drove to Kalispell, MT, just outside Glacier National Park. Well, "just outside" turned out to be a hour outside the park, but it was a nice community and our motel hosts were quite nice. The drive between the two cities provided little of interest save for a horse or two, one old building, and a city named for what we thought was a waterfall and but had no falls and only a river with a couple of scenic areas. We managed to pass by the old building in between rain squalls, so I stopped and took a couple images of it. I've chosen one for today's Theatrical Thursday presentation, and made some slight modification to it in the form of simply rendering it as a watercolor. Other than that and a small amount of cropping, it is as we saw it if one sees things in water colors. The location is about an hour out of Wallace but that is about as much info on it as I have. I thought the old derelict made for a nice composition against the trees when I saw it, but while I was working on it I could "visualize" a much more interesting work by making the conversion. When placed side by side, this version and the original shot, there is no doubt that rendering the scene in water color is dramatically more pleasing. One might even consider rendering this as a cross stitch work. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/250 sec @ f / 5.3.
