Palm Tree Growing Over Lake Catherine

Jul 24, 2011 | Floral Plants & Trees

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

This is Lake Catherine, where I took my boat for it’s first launch. I’ve noticed this palm tree before but it never looked like this. I think because of all the rain we’ve been getting lately this palm tree is much more vibrant than usual. I had my eye out on this shot ever since I took the boat out. Unfortunately the sun sets haven’t been too thrilling lately, even today it kinda fizzled out. Hopefully I’ll get a better shot tomorrow evening.
