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.

Morning Golf

This was a sunrise image that I took.
I added a “painted” effect in Photoshop and added golfer.

Does it make you want to play a round of golf?



Miami Beach sunrise swim

Care to take a morning swim?
Color was not Photoshopped.  It was a bright orange.
This is off Miami Beach.


Day 3 of 5

This is for day 3 of my 5 day Black and White challenge.

This was taken at sunrise at Matheson Hammock Park
in Miami at low tide.

Beautiful morning at beautiful location.


Early Morning Golf

I’ve been very busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to upload new images. Anyway, here is something I came up with yesterday.

What are your thoughts? Can’t tell you hard it was to get the ball in focus, lol. Sunrise image is from Miami beach.


Lone Mangrove Tree

I took this image at sunrise at the Matheson Hammock Park near Miami, FL.

The water was about 12″ and it was mirror-like.  Great morning.

Beach Needed

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


Greece Sunset

This was taken from our hotel.  Great view.

I added a painted effect from Nik Color EFex.

Something from Greece

I’ve been bad.

I haven’t been up dating the site.  I’ve been on vacation.
BUT, now I have lots of pics to show.  I’ll start with the view from our hotel room in Santorini, Greece.

This was great to wake to and see at sunset, that pic is coming soon.

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.
