The Cliffs of Moher

Though an amazingly beautiful place to visit, The Cliffs of Moher in southwestern Ireland is also a tough place to photograph well - weather, wind, a ton of tourists, but I definitely recommend a visit.

At the time I was there, it was extremely windy, so I couldn't do any long exposures, even with a sturdy tripod. There was also a lot of low cloud cover and haze over the entire area.

When I started processing my photos, I knew right away that I was going to have to push the limits of Lightroom's dehaze slider, something I hadn't tried before. I was impressed. It worked out pretty well. Maybe not well enough to make a large print, but well enough to have a nice photo from the moment. Up top is the 'after' image and here's the original photo:

Fisherman and Lines

One of my favorite images from Ko Olina on Oahu, Hawaii. This one has the subject framed by the two fishing poles in an interesting way. I could have cropped in, but I liked the lone fishing rod on the left, and it doesn't hurt to have photographic objects in sets of threes (really, it's a thing).  I also love the colors and contrast between the rocks, the water and the sky. Wish I was back there right now!
