Wordless ... well, almost

Sometimes I have no words

that are beautiful enough

 to describe the joy

 of sharing this beach

with feathered friends.
~ ~ ~
 
 For these photos I used a program called Snapseed.
You can also use it on an iPad, iPhone, Windows,  Mac and soon Android.
It is pretty robust with textures, HDR, vintage and so forth.
Check it out.  Watch their video.
It's perfect for lazy editors like me!

Later, my friends,

It looks so peaceful there.
I LOVE Snapseed!!!

Ginny said...

The pictures are all amazing, especially the last one. I have seen Snapseed in my app searches. I will have to go back and give it a second look now. I have about six editing apps on my iPad, but don't use them that much because all my photos are on the computer and it is a pain to send them over, then back.

I use Snapseed often on my iPhone pics and never realized that you can use it for photos on your hard drive...good to know because it is so quick and easy...and I am sure I am a lazier editor than you!

Such great photos. The editing look great. I am at the beach myself and loving every minute of it.. Carlsbad Beach in California. I really haven't seen many birds hanging out on the beach.. Just some seagulls flying over head!
