Here is another image I dug out of my archives from my trip last year. This is Daytona Beach on a quiet but warm afternoon in December.
I understand this place can be a total circus during the Daytona 500 or during spring break or at Christmas and probably New Years and a bunch of other occasions too. But when I was there it was nice and quiet and Ray and I got that big long beach almost to ourselves.
I processed this image using one of Trey’s awesome Lightroom presets. (I’m sure if you’re a photography fan you know who Trey is but if not you should.)
Trey really knows how to make Lightroom sing and I have great fun playing with around with these presets. They are not the kind of presets that barely do anything visible. There are some really nifty settings being used and I learn a lot about Lightroom just deconstructing the presets. The one I used here is called “Big Wheel Race.”
