About the Banner #20


The last banner was shot early in the morning on Fire Island over Memorial Day weekend. There was a cool mist over the calm water and whomever had set up this beach chair had gone elsewhere.

I enhanced the saturation a bit for the banner, but I do like the more muted tones of the original, and especially the way the ocean and sky come together in an ambiguous horizon. Unfortunately, given the horizontal nature of the banners, that part of the picture was lost.

  1. Hey Andy, your photos are fantastic and this is a particular favorite of mine. What lens are you using? I have a D80 with an 18-135, but I'm not sure I'm ready to throw down the cash for an 18-200mm Nikkor (I'd rather spend it on a 12-24mm superwide). The 70-300mm is pretty appealing though. I've been pretty satisfied with my 18-135, but for distance shots like that, I love the intensity you've gotten. Tripod?

  2. Andy, I love your site, and I mean this in the kindest way possible, but it's "whoever," not "whomever."
