taken in August 2005 [original photo just posted before this one]
it may be a beautiful day, but don’t be deceived. NO ONE could go swimming – the waves and rip tide were extreme. this was the week of Hurricaine Katrina, and although it looks lovely here, those beautiful clouds were the beginning of the storm coming. I tried to get the photo to show how LOW and heavy the clouds were – they were beautiful but it was surreal the way they dipped down to the earth.
applied Advanced HDR for some fun – it had an almost painting like result.
