Module Five – Chapter One
I have just returned from a week in Bonifacio, Corsica. I spent a lot of the time photographing the cliffs and granite rocks on a nearby island in preparation for this module – Texture in Landscape. How lucky to have such a magnificent natural landscape in front of me at this time.
To start with here is a reminder of the beautiful blue sea and sky!
On the recommendation of a friend, I have just downloaded the free image manipulation software GIMP and have been experimenting with the images of the cliffs below. I know there is a lot more to learn but this is a start! Against the image number I have written the GIMP function have used.
