A stormy view from Breach Inlet on Isle of Palms, SC

Storm at the Breach

A storm blew through the area today and I had the time to get out to the beach.  I knew there were some rock jetties at Breach Inlet near Isle of Palms which would work nicely in the images I was looking to capture.  Anyone who loves landscape photography knows that storm light often makes for dramatic photos and this image exemplifies that concept.  These were taken as the remnants of the storm headed out to sea.

For this photograph I drug the shutter a bit using a polarizing filter to slow it down so that I could get a slight blur in the water to imply the motion in the waves.  This is a black and white conversion in Photoshop with a bit of cool blue filter (#80) added on top to add to the stormy mood.

I like the composition with the strong rock at the bottom to anchor the image.  The line of the rock jetty leads the eye out to sea and to the dark storm clouds overhead.
