Sounds like my efforts to catch the comet too. No success, but great sunset shots.
This is just beautiful... and you caught a sun pillar too. I'd be happy with that, hope you are too. :-)

Well then, maybe love letters in the sand? I hope that wave didn't wash Kathy away, too.



Quoting Feather3:


Not my name..... I didn't even notice it until after I took the photo. A wave came at that moment and washed it away... I think it said 'Kathy'. And the back-lighting feature of the software did indeed give it a halo effect. :)

Quoting KisMokus:
Out of all the seascape photos you have posted, this one has most artistic appeal. Notice that your photo stacking or HDR software has added the telltale halo at the point where the rocks meet with, and contrast with, the sky. Did you write your name in the sand before you took the picture?

About Feather3

Feather3

Have lived on the Mendocino coast of California for almost 29 years. I have sold some photos, so I guess that makes me a freelance professional? :)I hope you enjoy these! My passion in art is drawing in pen and ink: birds. I have severe carpal tunnel that, while it seems to be getting better, has made it difficult to draw the smaller, finer details I was used to doing before - so in 2006, I took up photography and in July of 2013, the FujiFilm FinePix HS30XD and later, the NIKON D3200 came into my life :) - they are amazing pieces of equipment ........I have been drawing again, however, and am thankful! :) Exercises for the carpal tunnel nerve have helped *tremendously* thanks for a few folks here on WU! :) U NO HOOOO U R .... in addition to the CTS,in 2012, I was diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder; a genetic anomaly that for some women, hits hard with the natural hormonal changes of life.... so I get out less and less often. In May of 2014, my partner and I bought a house on an acre out in the forest.... so a lot of my photos will and have been, of our little place.... in October of 2014, my partner and I are getting married! :) He is a literal answer to prayer.... As a former wildlife rehabilitator (1986-2003), I frequently will receive calls to rescue wild birds - there are a few shots of these in my gallery, but I prefer to catch and turn in to a local vet or another rehabber, or catch and release, as the case may be, without a lot of stress to the critter by taking photos of an injured, scared animal. In my life I have also been a naturalist for a local nature center and have led nature hikes to identify area plant life as well as wildlife. It is from this perspective that I enjoy sharing my photos of the same, not having had the pleasure during my short stay at the nature center, but loving it all nonetheless. I think WunderGround is a lot of fun and have been enjoying this site tremendously - meeting other photog's from all over the world is one of the best - but seeing their photos! WOW! :)Be sure to visit my website - launched on 09/09/09, called Sunrise Sea Glass! Click on my website link to visit
