Trees and sky, near Bishop, California

This old image from my files lacked satisfactory resolution, so an art filter helped represent my impression of the scene.  The clouds and sky were left unedited, while the balance of the picture was transformed with Photoshop's Posterization filter.  The resulting combination of color and effect reminds me of a Currier and Ives illustration. 

Bishop presents striking autumn scenes with an assortment of colors.  The Owens Valley floor and the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains and White Mountains offer rugged terrain and many combinations of viewpoint, color and texture.  Like many of my favorite images, this picture makes me wish I could be there again, to see this scene in person.
