Time to wake up.
This is a 3 exposure, -2, 0, +2, of a sunrise just north of  Athens, GA.
I used Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 for post processing.
I love the way the colors turned out.  What do you think?

Here is an image I took at the Matheson Hammock Park just south of Miami, FL.  These are mangrove trees at low tide.  Within an hour the water level was at 12″. Image was processed in ACR and then in OnOne Suite 7 to add more detail in foreground.

I was up early taking some sunrise pictures.
Here is a barn on a small pond in our neighborhood.

This was a 1 second exposure to give it a little glow.

I need to go back to the beach.
This was taken from Mallory Square in Key West, FL.

Watched this beautiful sunset with my wife and brother.  Good times.

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.

Still cold in GA today.  I need to think of something warm.

hmmmm I remember when I took this image.  It was at sunrise on South Beach in Miami.  Warm morning.  Great sunrise.

I know I’m a little late for this but was on a long vacation.
This is the last sunset of 2012 as seen at my in-laws coffee farm in the hills of Medellin, Colombia, South America.

Just beautiful scenery.  I have lots of images I’ll be adding now I’m back in the USA.

This is a 3 exposure HDR image.  The fog was heavy this morning and I think it made for a great mood in the image.

This is from our holiday trip last week to Hilton Head, SC.  We were on a sunset cruise and I was hand-holding to get this shot.

I added a painted effect in Photoshop and kept it on the darker side to give it a more “dusk” feeling.  How do you think it turned out?

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?
