Sands of Point Reyes


 
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist   Sands of Point Reyes
Sands of Point Reyes

-----------
It was Labor Day, last year, around 3 pm. The day had been warm and balmy but when the fog rolled in, the winds came along for the ride and the cold was invading my bones when I shot this.
-----------
Reprocessed this yesterday, using Photomatix tone mapping, and then did a fair amount of dodging and burning to enhance the light dance on the sands.

  This is an especially beautiful scene you have presented, Michelle. The color of the sand and sky interspersed with clouds and their shadow make this image very appealing.
You always lend your special talents to the sky. You sure know your way around up there Michelle. Fine work.

  Limentour beach!! Carolyn F. is wrong, it's really foggy only during summer, (and there is a lot of places with microclimat). Beautiful image, Michelle!

  Excellent creation Michelle. So many scenes like this are taken but by those who don't have the vision, or the expertise, to capitalize on what they have. You have a very definite helping of both the needed components to accomplish this great end result.
