Today's Throw Back Thursday is from a sunset in Girl Scout Beach, Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. I took this picture when I was deployed there in 2011-2012. Enjoy!!!
It's been a while since I did anything in black and white. I went down to The Slot diving spot in Guantánamo Bay and thought about doing a long exposure with a B+W 10 stop neutral density filter--- I was after the silky look of the water as well as the movement of the clouds.
When doing my post processing I did a conversion to black and white and also cropped the image so that the naturally ocurring "S" shape will be accentuated. I'm pretty happy about the results!
Drama at The Slot!
I've never done a mega post of pictures, so here I go!
While stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba I took my camera and took advantage of the opportunity and snapped pictures around the bay. I have to say that the skies over GTMO are pretty strange. Rarely you will see clouds and when present they will be pretty high up in the sky. Sunsets were for the most part boring but I did manage to took some amazing scenes.
