Sunset at Loxahatchee Slough Wetlands Area


Saturday evening I went with a group of friends down to the Loxahatchee Slough, a wetlands preserve area, maintained by Palm Beach County. I took us abot 30 minutes to hike to this spot for the sunset. I’ve been here once before… back then it had more water, however the foliage was all dead. Now the place is lush with healthy green plants, but the area is dried up! Go figure. It might not have been as perfect as I would have liked but the sunset came out as beautiful as I expected ;-)

    This is you at your best. I love the wide gamut of colours you can achieve only with HDR. Love it!

    I took some sunrise shots this week and I don’t know how they’ll turn out. I was shooting handheld. Planning to get out again tomorrow or wednesday to try from a different place and take the tripod out too.

    Inspiring work dude. Really inspiring

    Beautiful sceneries! Kim, you sure know how to make a landscape look fantastic! Do you always takes three shots (-2, 0, +2) or sometimes you take 5 or 7 shots? I read that when you take more shots, your chance of getting noise is less important.
