“Give Me Faith” – Landscape Image

I sat on this landscape image for at least six months. I knew what I wanted to do with it, but just never had the time (or patience) to get there. It’s a composite made from several frames and was quite a nightmare to work on.

During a trip to Ocean Shores, Washington, I set my camera on a tripod in the chilly ocean water. I captured images (HDR in sets of three) as the waves crashed onto the beach. I didn’t know until later that the sand had given way under the legs of my tripod ever so slightly every few frames. The water was moving, the clouds were moving and my tripod was moving! Combining the frames manually in Photoshop was very tedious.

All-in-all I am pleased with the results – it just took far too long to process!
