This last week, Angela and I had planned to be on vacation along the Niobara River in northern Nebraska. However, the wildfires in this area caused the trip to be canceled. We decided to do fly fishing in Gunnison. After spending three days in Gunnison, we stopped at Salida on the return journey home. After parking, I spotted a mural and was immediately attracted to make this image. It appeared that there were several products illustrated in this mural over the years.
As we made our way through the town center, I found these kayaks that had been strapped to the wall.
While in Salida, we strolled along the Riverwalk. The Riverwalk is located along the west bank of the Arkansas River that flows through Salida. Outside the Public Service building is a colorful tree sculpture. I decided to gjve this the image the Simply HDR treatment.
After strolling along the Riverwalk, we meandered around some stores. Inside a book store, was this colorful bookshelf.
Angela motioned me the backyard located at the rear of the bookstore — she knew I could not resist making an image here.
Across the street were several horse sculptures. For this image, I used Snapseed to convert the image to monochrome and added a frame.
Also across the street was the fire station. I liked the reflection of E-114 in the water puddle on the concrete driveway. So E-114 got the Simply HDR treatment to enhance the reflection.
The trip to Gunnison was an enjoyable but unplanned vacation destination.
