Flagler Beach, Florida.
Such an amazing place… miles and miles of beautiful sand, and very few people. So much space to beachcomb…
The boardwalk is one of many that span the short hop over the dunes from the roadside of the A1A… one of the most magnificent coastline highways in the US, running from Miami Beach in the south all the way to Jacksonville in the north. Large sections of the highway are so fragile that they’re under threat of being consumed by rising sea levels, and though so much is being done to counter the erosion, I can’t help but think the breath-taking views it provides will soon be but an amazing memory.
HDR from 3 bracketed exposures at 1,5 f stop intervals.
Photomatix was used to blend the 3 exposures, and I settled for a more discreet effect, which this program lets you achieve easily to taste wirth some simple and intuitive tweaks. For me it’s the best HDR program around, and the price for the full-blown version is comparatively affordable.
