The North Shore

The heat of a hot summer day slowly eases its grip the closer we move towards the cold waters of Superior.  The sun’s rays dance on the surface of the water and it warms the stones on the beach.  Like a beautiful symphony the water laps upon the shore and the steady breeze whispers off the leaves and trees.  The view is spectacular and the day wonderful.  

 

Silver Efex Pro 2

All of my black and white images lately have been processed in Silver Efex Pro 2, and this one is no different.  Using SEP2 it was easy to open up the shadows of the foreground rocks while still maintaining the detail and the brilliant whites of the foliage.     Besides a few quick clicks in SEP2 the only thing I needed to do was sharpen.
