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.

    Beautiful picture!! I bought the SX20IS on your recommendation and am very happy with it. I just don’t seem to get the results you do!! My “eye” doesn’t seem to work as well as yours!!

    I really like this – and it would look great in B&W as well, although I know it’s not your thing.
