Cape May Point – Turn Around

There is more to the Cape May Point story I shared in my last post. It is uncommon for me to shoot directly into a sunset. I am usually drawn more to what I refer to as the backside sunset.  Essentially looking 180 degrees from the sun. I love the softer more pastel painterly tones usually found in this direction. On this night I was not disappointed! Once again, after recovering from having my breath taken away, I made about three compositions of what I saw and felt. Isn’t it wonderful how different the colors are in the very same sky at one time! My head was on a swivel looking back and forth as I exclaimed out loud, can you believe this?!?!

      Thank you Mary. I just showed up and was presented with incredible beauty. So blessed.

    John, the color is dazzling. Only a Fuji could have captured the complexity of this image.

      I tend to agree with that assessment Jim. Fuji does color right. I am using the Camera Calibration section of LR and applying the Provia conversation most of the times and am amazed at what happens to the color. Spot on!

    This is SPECTACULAR, JB!! I love it and much prefer this over the directly into the sunset one. Yes, the color is amazing!

    Heh, one of the first things I learned from you…. look behind you.

    Love the footprints, an image where they work really well.

    • JB July 23, 2016 at 5:05 pm #

      Yup, agree, normally I’m not a fan of the footprints.. 🙂

    It’s really pretty and colorful. That place sure has a lot of great moments.

    Dazzling color! Wow.

    Sometimes, don’t you just feel bad for the few colors that were not lucky enough to be chosen for a photo? This is just splendid!

    • JB July 24, 2016 at 8:34 pm #

      Never thought of it that way Janice…. now I’m not going to photography color unless all are included… I’m gonna be all B&W so as not to offend any specific color…

    Brilliance! Turning around, seeing, savoring and admiring the end of the day display of color and light masterpieces unfolding and changing each second… Love the tidal debris trail amongst the footsteps leading into the image and complimentary patterns and overall flow of the harmony of the sky, clouds, water, land and delicate dance of light. Brilliant moment and capture JB!
