Landscapes and Seascapes

Purple Haze – as this weekend rushes up to meet us, I would like to wish everyone an awesome, safe, and happy weekend! Also, a special announcement: This weekend will be my LAST weeekend of Active Federal Service. I will be signing out of the military onto my retirement leave next week! yay! As you all know, this means I will be moving…eww…packing and wrapping and sorting and ..well, you know what all has to be done! As a result, my blog entries may slow down for a couple of days until I can get my office set back up at home.
For now, this image has been extremely successful on my purchasing website so I hope all of you enjoy the color filter and the article. It just goes to prove that I have been around a while, and that I do love me some Jimmy Hendrix classic rock! Though one of my favorite tunes is Voodoo Child, I have not yet obtained a shot that I feel would accurately reflect that one. So, I will leave you with a portion of the lyrics;
“I am standing next to a mountain. chop it down, with the edge of my hand. well I can pick up all the pieces, might even make an island, might even..Raise a lil sand!” Happy weekend everyone!

Location: Edisto Island, SC, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens, Iduro CT213 tripod, Indro BHD2 ballhead, and a purple sky filter.

As always, your support is grealy appreciated! If your interested in supporting my bringing these images back here for your viewing pleasure, please see my “About” page for the info and the discout code.

  1. Cool shot Stan, I hope the move goes well. I got a similar effect last year by varying the colour temp on the camera.

    Since I don’t have the artistic touch of a photographer I greatly appreciate the work of others. This is beautiful and does represent Hendrix quite well.
