On the day after Valentine’s Day I made little to trip to the beach and came across this Snowy Owl. I grabbed a couple of shots. I am not a wildlife photographer, but I’ll take a few photos when the opportunity shows it self.

Ice Boats on Mecox Bay

Thursday January 18th I made a last minute check of the ice on Mecox Bay and found the ice boaters out. Most were  getting the last day of ice racing in before the weather warmed up. The racers were excited because the ice was smooth and fast. Trying as many runs as they could before the days light vanished.

Took a hike at Montauk Point and couldn’t resist taking a few photos. The Lighthouse of course, and a few other iconic Montauk Point images.

Advantages of Digital

Below are two images that I recently captured at Montauk in Camp Hero, the park on the ocean side of the point. I was unable to upload the unedited images due to problems it created in the galleries. In both images the foreground shadows are very deep with what appears tom be little our no detail. Originally shot in color and exposed to preserve the highlights then processed in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik softwares. Besides the obvious conversion to black and white I was able to extract a great amount of detail in the shadows. These are not a HDR images, (high dynamic range). HDR images are a merge of several different exposures.
