Spot of Blue

Spot of Blue

Took this during a break in the craptastic weather here in Fort Myers, Florida. It was my usual spot but the light and weather made this super interesting. This image wasn’t enhanced at all color wise. This is really what the sky looked like when I took the image. I was standing out on a pier with the wind gusting all around me. In fact, shortly after this was taken it started to piss down and I had to shove…

Caloosahatchee Sunset

Caloosahatchee Sunset

One from the archives. I have shot and edited more than a few of these but I just like them. I keep finding news ones that are just different enough to make them worth editing. I will be in Fort Myers, Florida for the next 5 or 6 weeks. Hope to get some new images along the river now that I will have time to explore and scout spots. I need to get into the habit of shooting daily again….

Gold Fading To Blue

Gold Fading To Blue

This is a sunset on the Caloosahatchee River. I have published similar images before but I always masked stuff in. This is straight out of the camera relatively speaking. Not going to write up too much about this. It’s one of those images that you get lucky to capture with a camera and it turns out well. It’s just being at the right place at with a camera and a tripod. Editing wise nothing but loading my A7R camera profiles…

Fade To The Stars

Fade To The Stars

I have published the landscape version of this photo before. I figured why not publish the portrait version. You get a whole different perspective of the image. The image shifts all over the place color wise. You go from the black water to the bright bridge light reflecting off it. Then you have the bridge itself and the buildings in the distant. They all twinkle like stars at night. However, there are real stars visible. That isn’t noise in the…

Blue Hour Clouds

Blue Hour Clouds

Since I was playing in the archives I came across some night shots I never published. This would be one of them from when I was in Fort Myers, Florida. Which I will be heading to in about 30 days. This is is the magical blue hour that photographers talk about. While it may look like a product of rain or a storm the reality is that is just the clouds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico and with…

Under The Bridge And Golden

Under The Bridge And Golden

Shot from the Route 41 bridge in Fort Myers, Florida. No idea what the real bridge name is but I do know the road name so going with that. This was shot a couple years ago. It was meant to be HDR when I was just learning about it. So I had 7 images to stack which would have introduced so much noise that it wasn’t worth the effort. The image being published is just a single image. It’s amazing…

Sunset Over The Caloosahatchee River

Sunset Over The Caloosahatchee River

One of the unpublished from the archives. I shot this in 2015 I believe when I still had my Olympus EM1 gear. I have sense moved on to full frame Sony and Nikon but I still have some great images. This image was part of my great learning curve for doing HDR. I would shoot a ridiculous 7 exposures. I had no idea what the hell I was doing with HDR and I never realized that the more images you…

Postal Sunset

Postal Sunset

This is another sunset over the Caloosahatchee River in Fort Myers. I was setup on the riverwalk that runs along the river doing one of the many sunset photos I managed to take while I was there. I really liked how the pylons framed the image. There is enough detail there to let your mind fill in the blanks but it’s dark enough that it doesn’t distract from the focal point of the image. Editing wise I went with faux-HDR…

Distant Sunset

Distant Sunset

I return to Florida even though I’m in Thailand at the moment for this image. I am amazed at how many images I got out of this one area just by changing the angle and moving around a bit. They are similar but always different. Editing wise I did the usual routine then started to mask in bits. I wanted the sky and the dock/pier thing to pop but leave the water soft. It was too distracting so masked in…

Watching The Setting Sun

Watching The Setting Sun

It seems the trend has been me doing sunset photos on a Friday. That is the assumption that there is a weekend approaching. Sadly I am in Chicago and I am doing a 9 day straight without a breakĀ on an extended project. On the bright side once that is done I’m off to my happy place, Thailand! I am going to guess that the pier with the cover on it is for viewing the Caloosahatchee River. There were lots of…
