SUNRISE - DISGUISE A BORING SKY
I'm not a beach person. I truly believe my life would be more fulfilled if I enjoyed being surrounded by hot, glaring sand and my body broiled to a medium rare by the sun. Not to mention, dealing with a painful sunburn and the inevitable shedding of skin like a python. Sorry, not a beach person.
But when Linda and I had an opportunity travel with friends to explore Amelia Island, I was ready. After all, I enjoy shooting sunrises and I know that I would be off the beach by the time the beach lovers arrived and the conditions I outlined above had developed. Oh, I should mention I love fresh seafood.
So I ventured out and set up my gear for the expected golden rays of sun peeking through the dramatic, pink clouds. The sun came up and not a single cloud in the sky. Just blue water and blue sky. Thank goodness for Lightroom plug-ins. Topaz Impression saved the day. This ended up being one of my favorite images of the trip.
