Storm Tonight

Jumping ahead a few days, our Hapless Photographer just heard the forecast on the shortwave. Big storm tonight. He’s not worried though, he’s got a sturdy boat and he’s an experienced sailor…. Moo ha ha ha ha!

Details: This shot is a combination of a computer generated seascape with stormy skies from about 3 of my images. The seagull was brought all the way from Indian Brook beach in Florida. I suppose to be “realistic” I should have made the seagull more of a silhouette, but part of the fun is having these little jarring notes in the image to make you think something isn’t quite right…

I used a wonky gradient filter to give the patchy coloured look to the sky, then used my graphics tablet to handwrite the caption.
