Shot from Rickenbacker Cswy, Miami, FL


After the sunset colors all but vanished I climbed down the rocks that bordered the sea wall to get some of the rocks in the foreground. I didn't get too far as the ground was super soft, no surprise there really considering that at high(er) tide the whole area is under water.


Sitting at a super exciting workshop in Coral Gables right now... that's how far I am allowed to travel job wise... ha, ha. For people who don't know that's about 8 miiles south of where I work and 22 miles from where Iive. I am so thrilled... :-D

Well no strong foreground AKA rocks here, but I like the colors and on the larger view on black you maybe can see some textures from underwater seaweed just below the waters surface in the foreground. And this is a 70 seconds exposure, as it was already very dark. Time to pack up and go home.

Hobie Beach, Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL


This is my favorite tree on the beach. Unfortunately I am not ot only one that likes it, so it's difficult to get a shot without anyone else in the picture. The wide-angle lens really helped as I was almost leaning against it getting between everyone else and my tree. :-D


Please also have a look at the larger view on black.


Here are a few more shots featuring this tree: Vizcaya at Sunset and "You've Been Framed".

Brickell at Sunset

Shot from Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL


I was shooting the sunset on the south side of Hobie Beach and when I looked to the north I saw THIS.


You should have seen me sprinting along the beach to get to the end of the pier, under the Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge to the other side... LOL. I knew I didn't have too much time, because (i) it was already after sunset and (ii) the colors don't stay there for too long.


I managed a few more shots which I will upload once I have a bit more time, i.e. after I cleaned up the mess the dogs left behind.


They know I am leaving tonight and are a bit upset... I'll miss them too.

Shot from Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL


This is not the greatest shot of all times... the cool puffy clouds had pretty much all disappeared, the sun was still fairly high in the sky for a sunset and in "the wrong spot", a bit more to the right would have been nice. Oh well...


I mainly took this to see "how wide 17 mm are on FF" as compared to 10 mm on a 1.6x crop camera, like my 40D. I know, 10 mm on the 40D should be equivalent to 16 mm on a full frame camera. But I need to see things for myself. Here is a similar composition from this location shot with the 40D and my favorite lens, the EF-S 10-22. The 40D shot looks indeed a tad wider (as expected).


I still think I can live with 17 mm, i.e. will get the EF 17-40mm f/4L to complement my other lenses. Also, it has the same filter size as the EF-S 10-22 so I can use my filter holder and filters I got for that one and don't need to get new ones.

My dear Flickr friends,


Sorry for disappearing so suddenly. I meant to leave this note yesterday, but it was extremely crazy at work and then my computer crashed just before I was about to leave to go to the airport.


I just arrived in Austria where I'll be visiting friends and family. I won't be online too much over the next three weeks but will check in as often as I can, if I can handle the slow dial-up internet connection at my parents' place that is... so not too often... cause it took me 5 minutes to get to the homepage... LOL. Uploads will be impossible at this rate.


Till later. Hugs!

Sunset at Hobie Beach

Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL


I had to pay my favorite tree another visit before it is gone too. I hope that won't happen, but all my favorite places seem to disappear or become inaccessible (more to that later).


In a way this shot also goes nicely with my last post. How's that? Well, yesterday I told you the "crazy bird lady" story and when I posted the last photo of this tree, I complained that everyone likes this tree and it's so difficult to get a shot without people in it. Hung suggested in his comment: "You should scare everyone off by acting like a crazy homeless lady asking for hand-outs to buy more camera equipment. That should get rid of them."


So crazy bird lady meets crazy homeless lady... LOL... and guess what? It worked! I didn't have to shoo off any people for the shot. They all stayed away from me.

I needed "to get out" after work yesterday and even though it was completely overcast I decide to drive over to Virginia Key and take in the ocean breeze. By the time I get to the toll station it was almost sunset time and the sky at the horizon just exploded in color. By the time I managed to pull over and get set up the color was already vanishing, but I still was able to get this.

Sunset in Miami, Florida shot from Rickenbacker Causeway fishing pier. Last of Miami until I return again to South Florida.


HDR - 9 exposures (photomatix 3.3, cs 3.0) Used newest version of Photomatix and like the results a bit better. Seems to get rid of the original exif data though - shot with a Nikon D300.


Please view on black and large:


On Saturday in Boston, our son-in-law skillfully maneuvered us around the city while I was able to capture a few of my favorite sites from the backseat window! This bridge hadn't been built when I lived in Bean Town in the 60's! Was fun to revisit as a tourist!

I wanted to be a few more miles south to shoot this, but in the end I was just glad that I made it to a spot that offered a view of the sunrise over water.

Rickenbacker Blues


Shot from Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL


I have shot at this location before - quite often actually - but I just like coming back here. You never know what you’re going to get.


This time I had no luck with the sunset, but got nice clouds before sunset. And I was quite surprised that I had the place to myself. Usually the place is hopping with fishermen and getting a shot without people in it is almost impossible, especially when you want to shoot the palm trees. They are extremely popular with them.

As sunset approaches, cormorants perch on the cross beams under the Rickenbacker causeway that joins Miami, Florida to Key Biscayne. Biscayne Bay flows underneath.


Be sure to view this on cormorant color.

I'm not a landscaper shooter, but I have wanted to shoot the Miami Skyline for a long time, and today was the day for me. I had a blast, unfortunately the rain cut my visit short but I shall be back.

Time to revisit some "old" places. It's been close to 3 years since I have been over to Virginia Key for a sunset shoot.


Now would be the perfect time to shoot sunset after work, if the clouds should cooperate and I should get out on time that is. I will try and swap my handbag for my camera bag. ;-)

So I've been "stuck" in Coconut Grove for 10 days. I hoped to get at least one sunset shoot done at Key Biscayne, but the weather wasn't too cooperative in the evenings. Yesterday, Sunday, it looked pretty good, though, so I drove over to Virginia Key.


When I got there the sun disappeared behind a cloud and it looked like the sunset to be a non-event, again... bummer. I slowly made my way back over the Rickenbacker and when I got to the top of the Causeway it all of a sudden didn't look so bad at all.


So I pulled over and wandered off to the beach and found this little boat (canoe, kayak... or whatever it is). I didn't have too much of a chance to compose the shot as the owner appeared out of nowhere and took it away from me... :-((

. . from the Rickenbacker Causeway.


As I said on an earlier post, I did manage to get time off one morning, picked up a rental at 7am, and went exploring. As I was coming back from Key Biscayne this marvellous vista of downtown Miami opened up in front of me. The exif shows the pic was taken at 8:20pm, but that of course was Bangkok time in the camera . . it was actually taken at 9:20am, Florida time.


This one is worth viewing large.

Well, actually not just South Beach, but the Port of Miami, Fisher Island as well. But that was just a too long title.

Give it a few more weeks and the sun will be setting behind Villa Vizcaya, hopefully... and I'll take the telephoto lens with me.

It's time for the weekend... I am running out of shots to post after last weekend's shooting wasn't so fruitful. Digging in the archives I found this shot taken a few months back.

There is no denying the Beatles had a HUGE influence on modern music as we know it. I for one was inspired to pick up guitar because of them.

But an interesting note is that aside from Paul's Hofner bass, the rest of the instruments they played were all American made!

George's Gretsch guitars were made in New York. John's (and George's) Rickenbackers were made in California and Ringo's Ludwig drums were produced in Indiana... Ringo was so proud of his "Imported from America" drums that he had the Ludwig logo printed on the bass drum head (it didn't come from the factory that way) So there you have it. The British Invasion was played on American Instruments... Kinda cool huh? :)
