About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

    Very creative! What program do you use to do that?

  3. Retired One. I'm really enjoying this.

    Anonymous, Thanks. I'm using Paintshop Photo Pro X3. I promise I will not use it to touch up photos other than to do "extreme" make overs like I've been doing!

  4. These are beautiful! I think that I almost ordered that program. Now I think I will!

  5. Sandy, I did a lot of research before I bought it. I didn't want to spend big bucks on a program because I'm a tightwad...and it seems the big programs have such a learning curve. It has taken me quite a while to even pretend I know what I'm doing with this and I still have a lot to learn, but it is so much fun!!!
