South Carolina Coast

A simple composition along the Atlantic coast on a windy stormy day. The sand was blowing so heavily it created the appearance of fog as it whisked along the beach. I wanted to capture the look but wasn’t able, it was too subtle. This is an HDR image with some added post processing. I softened the clouds with a motion blur and converted the image to Black and White.

I just updated my Photomatix Tutorial with screen shots of the yet to be released Ver4.0. Lots of new features and a new interface look.

That’s Venus under the Moon.

It was a great day of shooting the fastest riders in the world at Budd’s Creek National Motocross event. I shot my Nikon D2X infrared camera and had lots of fun experimenting with panning at various shutter speeds.
