Jupiter Island Beach Storm

May 18, 2011 | Florida Beaches & Coasts

Normally I don’t like shooting beach scenes using this perspective because of all the leading lines that it produces. What also happens is buildings, like condos, ends up getting captured as well. I prefer to keep them out of the image. This time I didn’t mind buildings being in the photo. I feel man made objects and storms kinda goes well together.

This image was going to be part of a series that I’m doing called “Chasing the Storm.” I planned on posting all the photos in one article but I don’t have much time so I’ll be doing each one separately. Once I finish posting all the photos from the series, I’ll do an e-book for it so you can enjoy it in the comfort of your e-book reader ;-)

Now that we are on the subject of e-books… some of you are probably wondering about the HDR Portrait e-book and when it’s going to be available. I am working on it and it’s about 90% done. I’m pretty sure I’ll have it completed by the end of this month.
