Week 13 … #12 Wild Card, Quiet Oasis

Historic Spanish Point, Pioneer Boat Yard

A friend recently told me about Spanish Point in Osprey, and with the Holiday weather being awesome, we ventured down to explore it this past week.  Through the years, the pioneer dwellings and prehistoric Indian remains have been preserved, along with the formal lawns and plantings and an actual Aqueduct.  I enjoyed walking among the mangroves overlooking Little Sarasota Bay and taking in the serenity of this quiet oasis.

The original image was mediocre.  So I went to work on ‘spiffing’ up the image, since I thought it represented the quiet solitude of Spanish Point.  It was first edited in Lightroom using a Photomorphis texture and then over to Topaz Studio for some more edits.  Hope you enjoy.
