Mt Gardner Inn And Fly Shop
Painting - Digital Photograph
Mt Gardner Inn and Fly Shop
� Omaste Witkowski
This photograph was taken in Winthrop Wa (Washington State), in the beautiful Methow Valley. The Methow is a small jewel of an area not too far from Seattle in the Pacific Northwest. Okanogan County is such a great place to live for all of the sunshine and outdoors recreation.
I started with a digital photograph and used a HDR process to tone map the light. Then I applied a finishing oil paint layer to add texture to the overall image. I did some tonal work to even out the colors and make them realistic to what I was seeing in nature but not excessively.
I am interested in photography as an "unusual" or "unique" image making process. In other words I enjoy starting with a photograph of an ordinary scene or subject and then I try to make it my own by adding unusual processing techniques. I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as i enjoy creating it.

Quality Lodging in the Methow Valley
Great rooms at great prices
At the heart of the scenic Methow Valley, in the western theme town of Winthrop Washington, is the Mt Gardner Inn. A perfect spot for travelers looking for great rooms at great prices. Located in the center of 3 million acres of public land, the area is known for world class hiking, biking, fishing, climbing, horseback riding, water sports, birding, scenic drives and cross country skiing. North Cascades National Park is a 45 minute drive from the inn.
Take a short 15 minute stroll to downtown Winthrop over the new pedestrian suspension bridge and along the lovely meandering Methow river. You may just see one of the resident bald eagles or steelhead trout along the way.
Once in town, choose between numerous eateries from fine dining and the local brew pub with award winning brews to a delectable bakery, mexican fare and western home cooking.
Shop 'til you drop at galleries, boutiques, antiques shops, and souvenir stores.
The Mt Gardner Inn is proud to house Winthrop's only flyshop. Offering hundreds of fly patterns, gear, and accessories, Flyfishers Pro Shop has everything you need to outfit yourself for our local lakes, streams and rivers.
Winthrop has a western theme ordinance so all businesses must pass a strict review process to get their signage and buildings approved. Because of this, the entire town has a very rustic feel with rough hewn cedar and board and batten construction, even on new buildings. Just wait until you see all of the artfully painted signs and period storefronts when you come into Winthrop town limits.
The Mt Gardner Inn is a great choice for quality affordable lodging in Winthrop, WA.
We are proud to welcome dogs too! (Standard rooms only)
See you soon!
"One of the best budget spots in town is the Mt Gardner Inn. A little mom-and-pop place run by a friendly young couple who keep the place in tip-top shape. The furniture is new and the rooms are spic-and-span. There are several room options, including pet-friendly rooms and more luxurious rooms with private decks."
