ABACO DAWN: WHERE NATURE MEETS ART…

DELPHI DAWN: WHERE NATURE MEETS ART…

There’s a moment when certain photos suddenly look as if they are paintings. This may be especially true of skyscapes or seascapes – or both together. Here are some recent daybreak views from Abaco which could as easily have been painted from a bright palette. And in case you think the effects have been produced or enhanced by some photoshop-style jiggery-pokery, all these images are exactly as I downloaded them, and no ‘special effect’ settings were used to take them. I just pointed and shot… J.M.W.Turner, what could you have done with a Pentax?

  1. We have been so busy enjoying the dinner conversations that we have missed the sunsets. Will correct that situation when we return in April!

    • Linda, these were sunrises – so set the alarm for 6.30, and carry on with the dinner conversations as usual! Actually, the sunsets, though often spectacular too, never seem to make such good images shooting over the coppice and pine forest; the sea makes a much better direction for photos.

    • That’s very kind, Scott. The amazing thing is that the effects were achieved simply by altering the zoom, nothing else. It’s always hit and miss to shoot directly at the sun, but sometimes it just works out… RH
