Anderson Valley

I decided to try a little digital landscape work with a beautiful area that we used to drive through on our way up to Mendocino in mind. The Anderson Valley is situated about 35 miles from the coast and is dotted with scenic wineries and lovely sheep farms along the way. Our trips were always a step back in time and place and a reminder of quieter, simpler ways. This is a collage of different images all cropped , layered and painted in photoshop. I liked that it turned out looking quite a bit like a photo from the area.
