Description

While the American White Pelicans are migrating through Colorado, they provide opportunities to practice my birds-in-flight techniques. During a visit to a local state park, I shot pelicans and various scenes around the lake to see what I might put together for a weekly photo challenge.

The paddleboarder glided with ease through the lake waters, and I thought it would be an interesting fantasy to put her among the clouds and with the pelicans.

Four images compose this scene. I created silhouettes of the pelicans and paddler in PS then layered them on top of the sky. I used masking and cloning to position bits of clouds around the paddle board.
