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.

Miami Beach Sunrise

I miss the beach.  I miss watching the sunrise on the water.
Here is a tone mapped image of Miami Beach, FL.
Used Nik Color Efex 4 for processing.

Spring has sprung

1st day of Spring! Yeah.
I wanted to post something that made me think “warm”.
This is a 3 exposure, -2,0,+2, HDR image.  This was taken on the beach near South Beach Miami, FL.

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?

Kayaking at Sunset

This was a sunset shot taken at Corolla, NC, OBX on the bay side.

It is a 3 shot HDR image.  I combined 3 exposures using Nik HDR efex Pro.  The cool thing about the software is how it fixes ghosting.  Since the kayaker’s oar was moving in all 3 frames, I was able to choose which frame I wanted to use.  I picked the frame where the oars were moving the least.

I think it turned out pretty good.  I like the look and feel and the color.  What do you think?

 

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.

Sunset on the Water

Nothing like spending the day on the water.  Other than watching the sunset on the water.

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.
