|Cormorant on piling|
This was taken near Galveston Bay. Obviously a very windy day with large crashing whitecaps. Our area was expecting a front that was bringing severe thunderstorms along for the ride (a few tornado/funnel clouds as well). The pilings may be casualties from a hurricane - a destroyed pier not yet rebuilt.
Sometimes it is calming to look at images without a lot of clutter. Joining in Two Scoopz Focus 52 - click here to see other images that represent minimal.
I messed around with the RAW file, making a few adjustments (even worked a little fusing/HDR - but I didn't like the result) and eventually settled on making it black & white (keeping the few RAW adjustments). 105mm macro lens (what I had with me at the time)
