“Morning After the Storm”

Morning After the Storm

A predawn image from the public dock in Eastpoint. Most of the oyster beds were closed this morning and most of the boats were still tied up at the dock. The day before had been rainy and cool, this morning was cool and breezy. Shortly after this image was taken the skies began to clear and the moody skies were gone. I really liked the bicycle someone left behind, it added to the somber mood.

Another image from the last Apalachicola workshop. Ty was working on Eddie’s boat motor to get him back out on the bay. Life is hard enough without motor trouble in the Apalachicola area. I hope they got it fixed, I never saw Eddie launch while I was still there. I hope to photograph them again on the next trip.

I saw the beard from the car as I rode past. Eddie and Ty were working on the outboard motor on the oyster boat. I stopped and started talking to them as they worked. I took a lot of photos of them working, but this was the best of the lot. Single raw file processed in Lightroom 5 and then converted to B&W in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.
