Inspire Me Thursday Challenge: Faraway Places

"Vacation in Paradise"
I found this rather uninteresting photograph taken from a footbridge across an unidentified river. I altered it by soaking the photo in water, sanding some of the surface areas, then adding color with Lyra watercolor crayons, which I mixed and dispersed with my Niji brushes. I mounted the photo on a piece of cheap watercolor paper for stability.
