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.


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.


Colombia Sunset

This was an awesome #sunset over the #coffee hills of #Colombia, #southamerica.  GREAT vacation.

The coffee hills are beautiful, day or night.


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.

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.

Now let the weekend begin.
