Enjoying Siesta Key Beach sunset

We, myself and my family, are so lucky to live just minutes from one of the best beaches in the US, Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, FL.
I love taking sunset images.  I like it even more when there are a few clouds to add the little extra to the image. Nothing tonight but still great to watch.

Beach Needed

The cold is setting in.  I miss the beach.
Here is a nice warm beach sunrise from Miami, FL.


Destin Sunset

On a recent trip to Destin, FL., I had a chance to use my new camera, Sony NEX6.
I like the clouds in the background.

Destin Sunset


A little warmth for my mind

TGIF.  I wish it was warm, I wish it was warm…
Here is a sunrise from Miami Beach.  This is a HDR  image.  I used NIK   software to process.  I like the added grain in the sand and water.  Makes me think warm.

Sexy Model on the Beach

Sexy model, my wife, was walking on the beach as I took this image.  This was the beach at Hilton Head, SC.

I love the way the reflection on the waves over the sand.  What do you think?

Sunrise Splash

This was a 3 exposure HDR image.  I took this shot off South Beach Miami, FL.

I like the way the splash is shown in the sun rays.

Sunrise with my Sister

This was sunrise at Corolla, NC, OBX, with my sister.

This was her first ocean sunrise she has seen.  Beautiful morning.

Morning Sunrise

Woke up for sunrise this morning in Corolla, NC, OBX.
Great beach.  Water wasn’t too cold.

HDR After a Rain

After an over-night storm, I shot this pier near Sunny Isle, FL.

I used Nik Efex Pro filter to add toning and cold effect.


Had to say it-

“‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change
And the  bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can’t change
Lord help me, I can’t change

Lord I can’t change
Won’t you fly, free bird, yeah”
