Cuyuna Lakes MTB Festival Art Show

June 9th was the Cuyuna Lakes MTB Festival.  The theme was the "Spirit of Cuyuna". "pieces should portray the theme of mountain biking’s relationship within the community of Cuyuna Lakes."  I entered my photo of Boot Camp Trail.  HDR photo processed with HDR Photo Pro and enhanced with Photoshop Elements 9 and Topaz Labs plug-in.  Photo was printed on canvas, giving the look of a oil painting.

That is my trail bike in the photo.  The photo was taken when I was riding the trail in October, 2011.  If you have a chance, check out the trail system in Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area, Minnesota (Crosby, MN about 2 hours north of the Twin Cities).
