La Honda Road in the Santa Cruz Mountains

While driving home from my wedding in the Santa Cruz Mountains of Northern California, my wife and I stopped for a few minutes on a tree-lined road just outside La Honda to take some photos of our lush and tranquil surroundings.

Most of the photos were meh, but for one brief moment a bicyclist peddled his way through my shot giving me something more fun to work with. Still, it wasn’t until I added a bunch of Photoshop masks and layers, as well as some neat effects from Topaz Labs, that today’s photo of the day manifested itself.
