Unreal Twilight

This image started out as a digital photograph. I took it using a pre-set "filter" in my camera called "Sundown" which enhances the colors of sunsets. Then after I downloaded the image into my computer I altered the foreground in Photoshop, eliminating a car, a telephone pole, and reflections and dust smears in the windshield through which I took the photo. Thus I present to you an "authentic" image of an October twilight which is not very real at all. There was a sunset, and there were trees, but their reality has faded before the artificial, which is what you see and remember. 

I am almost through with my week of elder care and friend visiting and hope to be back in my studio soon.
