Jupiter Lighthouse Marina Gloomy Day

Jun 27, 2011 | Marinas & Boats

This past weekend has been nothing but gloom and doom, with rain clouds constantly passing by. I’m not complaining since Palm Beach County is in need of some serious water. But it sucks when you got the itch to shoot but there isn’t anything to shoot because of the weather. Hopefully this week will be a little better.

The photo here was taken at the Jupiter intracoastal, in the background you can see the Jupiter Lighthouse. I’ve been trying find different angles of the Jupiter Lighthouse and this is one that I haven’t gotten yet.

This photo was taken early this morning. I woke up early enough to catch the sunrise but it was pointless because of the hazy clouds over the eastern horizon. You can see it in this photo, I wasn’t expecting much from this image because of the light. But somehow it ended up looking pretty cool when I converted it to a duo-tone image.

This was a three exposure HDR image. I included the even exposure along with the Photomatix image to show you where I started from and what I ended up with.
