About this Photo: The Greenery in Coral Cove / by Andres Leon

Coral Cove Park in Tequesta, Florida never disappoints. It is without a doubt one of my favorite places to photograph any time of the year. The unusually warm weather this winter is a probable cause for the excess moss and greenery on the coral rocks at the beach. 

This morning's sunrise was superb, but I wanted to focus and pay particular attention to the green and the texture this vegetation had on the rocks and the dramatic imagery it created as it contrast with the water, sand and the blue sky in the horizon. This image is the result of blending two exposures: one focusing on the rocks and the green foreground, and the other exposing the sky and clouds out there in the background.  This time I used a polarizing filter to help bring the colors and tones of the rocks and also accentuate the blue sky at the top.
