Winter Sea  +SacredSunday™  #sacredsunday Curated by +Manfred Berndtgen +Robyn Morrison +Sherrie von Sternberg +Steve Barge +Chatchai Rombix and myself  +Beach Sunday  #beachsunday Curated by +Ross Campbell +Zen Sunday #zensunday Curated by +Charlotte Therese Björnström +Nathan Wirth & +Sky Sunday - Photography Theme  #skysunday Curated by +Randy Scherkenbach +Patrick Scherkenbach :- When I headed off to the beach a few days ago it was with the express intention of grabbing a few sunset shots. It had been a calm and quietly sunny day at the house and the beach was only a 5 minute drive away. So I drove down there, parked, got out and nearly got blown over! Man alive that wind was strong. Down on the coats it was blowing up a storm. It was incredible. So I walked at a 45° angle against the wind down to beach whilst holding onto my woolly hat to stop it from blowing away!  Heavy clouds obscured what was to be a lovely sunset so I had to abort that idea but the sea was dark, brooding and rough  and was thundering in towards the beach at a rate of knots! This is one of those images from that evening. I think it's a very powerful capture. Having lived by the sea all my life it's one thing that's a constant and is therefore very sacred to me.

Solitary Night:

I nestled my head under the stars
Wondering what they were saying
Perhaps a tale from the past
Perhaps a tale to be

Hey guys, here is another shot from my trip to Joshua tree. I still can't believe I shot the Milky way. It was an amazing experience!

How was this shot taken:
I actually need to thank my friend for forcing me to take this one. This is a 3 shot vertical panorama hand stitched in photoshop. I didn't have to light paint the rock, the natural light was good enough. Also, the light pollution was quite back.

How was this shot processed:
I first addressed the color temperature issues that the RAW file had, and made adjustments using levels, then it was about bumping up the contrast and brightening the Milky way itself. Also, I had to reduce the light pollution in post with an adjustment brush. In all took 15 minutes :)

For this week's spring theme, I'm drawn to one of the early flowers of spring (around here) where the tulip trees have been in full bloom for a while.

For #2012Project52, week 11: Spring/Fall, curated by +Giuseppe Basile and +Kate Church. The simplicity of these flowers also leads me to #ZenSunday, curated by +Charlotte Therese Björnström, +Simon Kitcher, and +Nathan Wirth.

This is my favorite photo from the Philadelphia Flower Show, thus far. I didn't take this as a black and white silhouette photo, but during post processing while adding what I thought was just going to be a black and white layer, I realized that I loved it like this.

I actually see this fitting the +SacredSunday Theme pretty well (curated by +Charles Lupica, +Manfred Berndtgen, and +Bill Wood). Very Zen. Hey! How about that? There's a +Zen Sunday Theme (curated by +Charlotte Therese Björnström, +Simon Kitcher, and +Nathan Wirth)!
