OBX Here We Come!

OBX Here We Come!
In half an hour or so, we'll be on our way once again to the wonderful Outer Banks of North Carolina. In all, we'll be gone 11 days. Hopefully I'll be able to upload a photo here and there, but comments will be a bit limited.

This image is of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. The clouds and sky were near perfect at this visit last summer, but just for fun I jazzed the whole thing up a bit with Dynamic HDR treatment (not usually my style, but we're getting outta Dodge, so I feel jazzy this morning)!! TGIF!

Terrific "Jazzing" work, Monnie. This is a wonderful image. And, of course, I have a strong prejudice in favor of lighthouse pics.

Well, I hope they were ready for you down there. Jazzy, huh? Barb said we should get a couple of them. 11 days... Well, I missed your send-off, but I'll be here awaiting the goodies like this that you'll bring back.
