Juno Pier Chasing the Storm

May 15, 2011 | Florida Beaches & Coasts

I planned on doing a series with this photo called “Chasing the Storm.” However this HDR image turned out so good I decided to post it by itself. I’ll post the rest later this week.

This is a photo of Juno Pier, taken a while back… so far back that it was shot using the 5D Mk1, which broke during my Thailand trip in 2010. There’s a whole set of unprocessed exposures from that day. I remember chasing this storm from Juno up to Jupiter… not like it’s far, but I stopped at five locations within 60 minutes! It was fun, I still can’t believe I never processed any of them!
