One of my favorite locations to photograph is on the north shore of Massachusetts and in addition to Cape Cod, it’s a location that I return to time and time again to photograph. This particular lighthouse, while somewhat difficult to find and access, is one of my favorite spots. Like many coastal areas, the best time to photograph this location is at lower tide and it’s possible to capture the reflection of the lighthouse in the wet sand. I wish this area wasn’t so far from where I live on Cape Cod. I processed this as an HDR image using Aurora HDR 2018 which I’m a huge fan of. I think it’s one of the best HDR processing options out there and I like the more natural look. I must say however that despite processing this using Aurora (with a few tweaks in Adobe Lightroom first), the sunset was really this vibrant. In fact, it ranked up there as probably one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen. By the way, you owe it to yourself to give Aurora HDR a try…it’s made by MacPhun (soon to be Skylum software as it’s now available for PC users as well). You can download a trial version and see for yourself how awesome and easy to use it is.
