Where's the Water Gone???

By MrsS    
Back to an old favourite before we head off to hopefully get new material tomorrow.

Loved the light on the fg rocks - - looked really odd without any water anywhere near the lighthouse, and we were all getting blasted by the sandstorm.

There did appear to be a storm of a much wetter sort on its way to us, but it never materialised (thankfully)

0.6sec @f22 ISO100 Lee grads and polariser

Whatever you get up to have a super Friday and Weekend Smile

Thanks for stopping in - - hope you like it, as you probably know, I'm having trouble with my processing at the moment, in particular with how dark images are - - so all comments really are useful Smile

Nice work Fran, looks like your processing of the image is at last catching up with your camera work. Look forward to seeing your new stuff.

EDIT: Reading that again it sounds all wrong, I hope you know what I mean and don't take it the wrong way. Your processing really brings out the detail and colour in this, it looks good Fran.

Thanks Robin - - it's got my "trademark" drop shadow, white frame, did try it against a black bg, but thought it was too much - - would upload it as a variant but you can't alter just the bg colour Sad

Thanks Chris, I realise about the sky, it was a weird day, lots of drama, but really hard to expose for Smile

I'll be ok once I get out with the camera, I guess!! Wink

Someone must have pulled the plug out and drained all the water....I too thought that the sand was water taken with a slow shutter speed! A beautiful shot and great composition, Fran.
