Photo of the Week
Late Afternoon at Nags Head Pier
This was shot just as the sun was about to dim out toward sunset. I shot with a neutral density filter so I could use a slow shutter speed of 1/3 to 1/2 second, with the camera on a tripod. I kept shooting as the waves kept breaking in order to get the best ones. I wanted to contrast the sharpness of the pier with the motion of the water. The high tide was washing right up to the dune, and my camera, so I had to shoot and then move quick as the water came at me. I did warm and saturate the colors to get the effect I wanted.
I hope you enjoy it,
