Greenbo Lake State Resort Park
Greenup County, Kentucky

It\’s still a bit chilly and snowy at the park and  we had a great walk on the Fern Valley Trail.  You might call this our home trail, we seem to walk it more than any others, so I think I\’ll start a collection of photos taken along the trail for each month of 2013.  It\’s a very nice trail that makes a loop right back to the parking lot, but it isn\’t what I would call a very photogenic trail.  Being a very calming walk with a nice vista, I always enjoy it but can\’t say it is a trail that routinely yields unusual or even very nice photographs without a bit of work and timing of the visit.

I\’ve been experimenting with toning in general, using Lightroom for duotones and curves for split-toning and general colorizing.
