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

Fire Hydrant in Corn Field

Over the weekend I saw this strange looking item near this corn field.
After looking at it for a second I realized it is a fire hydrant.
LOTS of detail in the hydrant and foreground.
Processed using Onone Suite 7.5 to bring out more detail.
This is a 3 exposure HDR.

Calm down…it’s Friday- HDR Sunrise

OK, here is something to calm you down.
A peaceful sunrise in the FL Keys. This is a 3 exposure HDR.
Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 was used for processing.

Now let the weekend begin.

Moo…it’s Friday

Happy cows near the west coast in California.

Moo.

HDR-Storefront

This is a shot of a retail storefront I shot and processed as HDR.  This was 3 exposures. I combined and tried to go a little over-the-top to give it a more vibrant look.  I love the clouds and the sky. Shots were taken with Canon 5D.

Teepees in the SouthWest

While traveling out in the Southwest, I found this little store.  Behind the store were these teepees.  I love the clouds rolling in.

Miami Sunrise

Getting ready for the long weekend.  Hope everyone enjoys the holiday.
This was a sunrise shot just off the coast of downtown Miami, FL. (Miami is to the left of this image).
I added just a little tone mapping thanks to Nik Efex Pro 4.
Storm was rolling in.  I had to get out of the water.  Didn’t want to be struck my lighting holding a metal tripod in the water. lol.

Over-the-top HDR Mangrove Tree

Sometimes you can go too far on a picture with HDR, this is one of them.

I went too far just to see how much grain and detail I could get from this image.  I like the colors but I think effect maybe too much.  What do you think?

Ocean Sunrise

This was taken just to the east of downtown Miami, FL.

Being on the ocean at sunrise is very calming.  Reminds me of my Navy years and my few months on the “Ike”, USS Eisnhower, CVN-69.
