Cure for the common cold

cure for the common cold

Here is some relief from the cold, a warm memory from the beaches of Aruba from last year. Something fascinating about sun and sand. The photo is shot using the wide-angle Canon 16-35mm at the widest 16mm -- hence the boats in the background seem to tilt in. That is just distortion because of the wide lens but often the distortion from wide-angle lens creates a pleasing, intriguing effect.

I've used Nik Color Efex Pro to process this. I've used a bicolor filter to highlight the blue/yellow or cool/warm tones in the photo from across the horizon.
