Playing with Tumbleweeds
Another image from the Channeled Scablands. It can be windy there, which is how I presume this huge pile of tumbleweeds formed. I like how the only difference between the cliffs and the tumbleweeds is texture. In reality, the cliffs were orange-ish and the tumbleweeds were tan and grey. Here’s a different processing of the same photo, this time maximizing the color difference.
It is also not strictly accurate: I took almost all the color out of the tumbleweeds and boosted it a little in the cliff.
