"Sunbathing"  by Bradley Shawn  Rabon

Throw Pillows

Available to buy on…

When a friend from Redbubble, Karen Millard came to visit me on my last day in Jersey, we spent an afternoon at Gorey, photographing the castle and the harbour in this small village. It was very difficult to take original shots with her following me around ( he he he, just kidding Karen), but I did enjoy trying out my HDR techniques. I took this lovely shot of an old boat enjoying a sunbathing moment as it waits for the tide to return to the harbour. I love the rustic feel of the harbour in Gorey. You can sense the history that this castle and village are steeped in.

This is a HDR image combining 6 bracketed shots, using Photomatix Pro for Macs, and adjusting some tones and lighting in Enhance Details as part of Tone Mapping.

Primarily a landscape photographer, my enjoyment of taking photos has developed from a young age. Originally from Texas, I now live in England and am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery. I enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, and camping. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three terrific children. I am a strong Christian and I believe that my love of photography and any talent I posses in capturing images comes from God.

    I have not been to Jersey for a long time, but I remember so clearly being fascinated by the boats in low-tide, especially early or late in the day. I like the gritty look that the HDR has given the ground here.

  • You are genuinely awesome. Thank you my wonderful friend for the compliment. I love the boats in Jersey. I know exactly what you are saying.
