Jetty Point

Jetty Point

Another from that intense afternoon at Jetty Point in Arcata California. The light was spectacular. The seas ahead of the squall were amazing. The wind took your breath away. And that literally breath-taking experience is what I attempted to capture. The standing stone of the Jetty dominates the foreground and anchors the image. The sweep of the violent sea behind provides the energy. The sunset touch in the clouds warms the scene just slightly and pins it in time.

Sony DSC H9 at 31mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/250 @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

Some color temperature adjustment was required in Lightroom to eliminate a slight blue cast from the cloudy light and to bring out the colors of the beginning sunset. Some Recovery for highlights. Clarity and Vibrance for Presence. Sharpened slightly.

From Northern California.
