Sea Oats

I took this this evening when my daughter called me and told grab my camera and come take pictures of the red sky at sunset. By the time I got to where she was, the sun had already dropped behind the marine layer. On the way back to the house, we took the "short cut" and walked past the sea oats. They looked great against the colors in the sky.


Little Cutie

This little cutie is on holiday from the United Kingdom. She's here with her father and grandparents visiting family here in America. We were invited to a BBQ that was being held for them.

When I took these pictures, I was sitting back, out of the way just watching. I was using my 70-300mm lens.

Here "A" was playing on the steps in the pool. I just love the look on her face! Since she was standing on the steps in the pool, the right side on her face and neck have a tourquoise hue.


This one was taken after the sun had diappeared behind the apartment building and she started catching a chill.

Playing with Post Processing

I was playing around Hue/Sats on this picture this morning. I took this while at the beach yesterday evening. All the sea gulls were in groups. I was able to approach these 3 without too much disturbance.

I used my 70-300mm lens, ISO 200, SS 1/640, F/6.3

PP was playing with Hue/Sats, adjusted levels, unsharp mask and cropped.
