roadtrip part 3-a color study

besides being a geological extraviganza, yellowstone is a most wonderful area in color study-my god! i hope to use these photos for future dye combinations-i hope i can capture the beauty and awe that the great mother has bestowed upon us.

the pale blue and bone color is just so dreamy and calming:
yum yum sludgy squadgee scum! (above)

for the love of orange!!!!!!
okay-only two more photos for this post:

now if i can only figure out how to reproduce these colors-and call it the yellowstone series. sara! oh sara!

Those are killer color combos and what great inspiration. Name your dye results for the place that inspired them. The yellow is like BrylCream though - a little dab'll do ya.

Fantastic photos, Steph. Color enough for a hundred projects!

What a magical place.. .I am envious as I have always wanted to see it. You certainly could get those with chemical dyes, but I have never seen someone get that turquoise with a natural dye!

picasa is a free editing program from google, handy for incresing color saturation
