Happy Easter to All! I wanted to post a special image on what for many people is a very special day: Easter Sunday. Whatever our own personal belief system may be times like Easter are a way for us to come together, with our own families, in a way that encourages us to consider the less fortunate within our wider world community. It should be a time for reflection, for quiet and for peaceful contemplation. It's also a great time to take a step back from this very hectic and strike torn world in which we find ourselves and recommit to our real life's purpose. Mine is to employ photography to share the wonders of our natural world and to explore and promote the positive aspects of the human condition.
The above image was made at sunrise on a bleak morning between heavy showers. Fortunately I was there ready for those few brief moments when the sun radiated through illuminating the rocks, beach and water in a glorious light.
Adobe Lightroom was used to process the original color image prior to further editing in Adobe Photoshop CS3 where the image was rendered into black-and-white then split toned resulting in warm highlights and cool shadows.
I hope Easter provides you and yours with a break from the rigors of day-to-day life and allows you all to find a sense of peace and purpose that you'll be able to take with you into the future.
