The cover photo was taken by Thomas Schultz on a cold day in November on his first trip to Creede, Colorado. Landscapes, urban exploration, ghost towns and abandoned buildings have always held a fascination for him. This photo was taken with a Canon EOS 5D camera with a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens. The image was initially post-processed in Adobe Lightroom, adding a texture overlay in Adobe Photoshop. His carefully chosen textures, also original photos, are shot on location and added to enhance the images, giving depth and richness to a piece, creating atmosphere. Once a texture is selected for an image, layer opacity and merge options set the mood for the final photo.
