Hike to a Glacier - page 2

(6) The path grew narrow at times, with steep drop-offs.
(7) We went past many small waterfalls, and hours after we had started, finally saw Grinnel glacier, which was slowly melting.
(8) When we looked back, we were awed by the lovely view of the three lakes by which we had climbed. It was such an amazing experience that Harry and I took our three boys back years later so they could share in the memory, too.

Photo changes:
All of the foreground photos are 40 years old, so I tried to make them brighter and closer to the original colors. I really changed the picture of the three lakes, but still couldnít capture the blue-green of the lakes without it looking fake.

The background photo is a stock photo that I expanded to fill my two pages and altered a lot so it didnít compete with my older, less sparkling photos. I used a couple of papers from various kits (see below), changed them to B&W and/or re-colored them, then used them on overlay or multiply.

Reflections Of The Heart Value Pack (frames,modified; berries, fastener, leaves, paper mini 3 used as background overlay) by Jen Reed
Swim Like A Fish Paper Biggie(paper 15 used as background overlay) by Jen Reed
Butterfly Kisses (both alphas, gold paper behind title alpha) by Jen Reed

    Your photos are gorgeously beautiful and I almost feel I"m there! Enjoyed your journaling and I like how you framed your title.
    Oh wow ! Great 2-pager! And fantastic photos - what a great hike to do. I love the placement of the photos and the main one as the background.
    Love both pages! great photos and arrangement. The color is perfect for your photos.
    I love all the photos and journaling. Stunning two page layout.
    love the use of the bigger photo for bg and great job you did on getting it to not compete with the other photos.
    The background photo looks good here - looks like the same vintage as the foreground ones.
