Sometimes lens flare can work to your benefit! I love the artistic effect.

This wonderful sunset over the Florida Everglades includes a starburst due to the f/22 setting, as well as an interesting multi-colored lens flare (NO FILTERS USED).

The image is a three exposure tonemap, and a flock of ibis birds flew through the scene, leaving a ghostly imprint on the sky.

Lightly processed in Photomatix and Aperture.

Shot using a Canon 5D with a Tamron 28-300 vc lens. Tripod mount.

Location: Tamiami Trail just west of Krome Avenue along the western levee on the edge of the Everglades National Park, Florida.

Featured in the World Wide Sunsets Group

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!
