Lifeguard Tower at Riviera Beach During Incoming Storm

Jan 8, 2013 | Florida Beaches & Coasts

I didn’t get a chance to see the sunrise this morning because of this storm cloud covering Riviera Beach. I was hoping to see a glimpse of the sun but the cloud coverage was way too heavy. This would be my first shot of this lifeguard tower with a dark storm scene in the background. I ended up shooting 3 exposures for this photo and merged it using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I also used Topaz Plugins to add some extra enhancements to the image.
