All of Colorado is in a drought currently, some areas more severe than others. I had to evacuate in 2012 for the Waldo Canyon fire so fire is quick to come to mind when the drought becomes so prevalent. I first thought of the old red door texture I shared with the class. It reminded me of parched earth with the cracks in the paint. I remembered I have an old 3D map of Colorado that I inherited from my Dad so I decided to try the two images in a composite photo. As I work on this we have a light rain, so I am grateful for that! I used the clone tool on a few spots that looked like old paint on the red door image. I used the burn tool very lightly around the edges because that seemed a natural for this composite photo. Cue the Bonanza Theme Song! Map image: ISO 100, f/13, 225mm, 1/8 sec
