Guana River

I am trying to give you a break from the birds of St. Augustine Alligator Farm. This is an oyster shell beach at Guana River Research Reserve in Palm Coast, south of Jacksonville and north of St. Augustine. The whole beach is protected as a archeological site. The driftwood snag adds foreground interest and there are just enough clouds to populate the sky for depth.

Canon Sx20IS at 28mm equivalent. F4 @ 1/1000th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

In Lightoom, slight cropping bottom and top for composition. Recovery for the sky. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Blackpoint slightly right. Sharpen landscape preset.

From St. Augustine FL 2010.
