Early Riser...

On Saturday I returned home from a fabulous trip to Spain and Portugal.  I'm still jet-lagged and rising earlier than usual.

I took this picture on the Island of Madeira (Portugal).  There was a rooster and number of chickens wandering around near the bridal veil falls on the western side of the island.

This week's Texture Tuesday challenge is to combine one of Kim Klassen's textures with any photo.  I used Kim's texture "extreme grunge".

hannah said...

Hi Pat,
recovered from the big trip?
And going on another one if I remember rightly.
What's with the sticky tape bits? Is that a gimmick? The two bits look identical, so I gather they must be a tecture type thingie.
