Crops require irrigation in the Oregon high desert. Thankful for the green, I couldn't stop taking photos of the irrigation systems we drove by in the Zipcar, Engine, a Ford Escape.

As I looked through the couple dozen photos I took, I picked the ones with shapes and vistas which appealed to me. In the background, Three-Fingered Jack, a 7,844 foot tall glaciated shield volcano named for its distinctive shape.

One more with Three-Fingered Jack in the distance.

Next I uploaded my choices to PicMonkey to alter each one with one or more of the apps there. I am so pleased with how each of these nine images turned out.

I realized I had art here, not just photos of irrigation systems.

Dynamic, motion-filled art.

Do you agree that these images are art? I really would like to know what you think. Thank you.

Mt. Washington, in the distance, is 7,794 feet tall deeply eroded shield volcano which has as its main peak a volcanic plug, heavily eroded by glaciers in the last ice age.

For me, this art provides nourishment, not only for the crops, but also for us.
