Hanging gardens of the Rockies

I liked the abstract effect I got with Photoshop in HangingGardens of Quadra a couple of months ago, so I decided to try the same Photoshop filters on a watercolour of the top two falls in Johnston Canyon near Banff. Unlike on Quadra Island, where the gardens had ‘driftwood, ceramics, and metal sculpture combined with flowers and arrayed around rock pools or hanging from trees,’ the canyon featured an impressive, but much less structured, display of moss and icicles.
