Texture Illuminated 4.13.12

On the last day of my Spring Break, Friday, we drove up to northern Washington to the Semiahmoo Park and then to Birch Bay. We were almost to Canada and I had never been that far north before. Both parks were beautiful and unique. It was an amazing new experience and a great place to recharge. 

Location: Semiahmoo Park
Settings: ISO 200, 250mm, ss1/400, f/22 (sunlight wb)
Intent: The sparkling of the sun and the texture of the clouds
LR Processing: Clean edit with basic settings and tone curve to add definition

Location: Birch Bay Park
Settings: ISO 200, 18mm, ss1/100, f/22 (sunlight wb)
Intent: The texture of the rocks and the lines of the water and beach
LR Processing: Clean edit with basic settings and tone curve to add vibrancy

"The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself." - Henry Miller

  1. Beautiful photographs! I especially love the first one with the sun sparkling on the water. I like the quote by Henry Miller, too! :)

  2. Wow! Both of these pictures are gorgeous! The scene there is quite powerful somehow. Fantastic light!

  3. Beautiful! I love the sunflare you captured in your second shot. Next time you should go all the way to Canada. :)

  4. Both are such beautiful photos! The sunflare is so gorgeous!!
