A Day At Island Beach, Almost Like A Painting by 

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.

dedicated to the Jersey Shore.

    That ocean is nothing to mess with. Neat looking capture! What a storm it was!

  • yes Viv, it is hard to believe how beautiful the day was, except of course the ocean was unbelievably rough and the winds were picking up. I haven’t been to the Jersey shore in years and hope to get there this year. we love Island Beach.

    This place looks fantastic, not to commercial like so many of them are. We went to Seaside Hgts last year and you have to pay to go on the beach everywhere!
