Thanks to all who took part in last week's playing card challenge. This week, as the weather gets colder here in the North, I thought we might go somewhere warm, very warm! So here we have a sandy desert, what will you make with it?

 

The “rules”:

  • Anything goes, as long as it meets the forum rules on decency, copyright etc.
  • Anyone, and everyone, is welcome to have a go, whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert.
  • There are no prizes apart from the chance to practice, show off, or bring a bit of humour and fun. Don't be shy, join in and have a go!

 

To download the image below at 3840 x 2160 pixels, with an embedded ICC colour profile (sRGB), hover over the image and click on the circle with the arrows at the top right. Then, when the image opens in its own window, right click and choose “Save Image As/Save Target As” (or similar depending on your browser).

This is another beautiful image, Dave, and very appropriate as we are all seeking our own little oasis of a sort during this pandemic. I did have to listen to the Stevie Wonder song again. 😊

Rafael,

Love your image composite!

It reminds me growing up. We had that framed print.

K, thank you very much for the kind words. Christina's World is one of my favorite paintings by Wyeth. He was originally from Pennsylvania, where I have been living for the last 40 years. He is a local hero, of course. When I was still actively employed, I worked with a relative of his, which increased my interest in his work.

"I hope Christina can make it to the oasis..."

 

Real life Christina was Wyeth's neighbor. She couldn't walk, but refused to use a wheelchair and preferred to crawl. She's strong and she'll make it — I have no doubts! Nice idea, @Rafael Aviles.

Dave, like I said, it is a classic moment in cinema history — the first time we see Omar Sharif in the film Lawrence of Arabia.  I can understand why a lot of people would not get the reference, as the film was released in 1962.  An incredible 58 years ago.

I thought about this and about the fact that the sand dunes said ice cream to me, and realised I can look at pretty much anything and think of ice cream. 😞

Dave, a bit late, just before seeing your post, I had decided to add this:

 

The sand horse awakening and smelling the water may worry the palms.

It’s seems Dave’s sand dunes have moved to Florida.

Moderate/warm temperature most times.

They fit rather well don't they, with the bonus that it is easier to get a drink 🙂 Nice job blending them together K
