First Sunset, Ft. Lauderdale Beach, FL 2014
On my first opportunity to shoot a sunset Seascape in 2014, I came across this combination of clouds and fading sunlight off of Ft. Lauderdale Beach. I added some foreground interest with a bit of beach and sea grass, and some slight motion to the waves, resulting in a painterly effect.
Hopefully, the promise of this scene, and the new day to follow…are a sign of good things to come.

Before it gets too much further into the new year, here are some of my favorites from 2013.
Looking forward to creating more in 2014.

Dog Fight, Hutchinson Island, FL 2013
Starting off the new year by posting some late 2013, unpublished Seascapes. My favorite beach to photograph is on Hutchinson Island, north of Palm Beach in Jensen Beach, Stuart, FL. With rock formations and regular high surf, in my humble opinion it is one of the best, if not the best, place to create seascapes in South Florida.
Here are some images that I captured there during the magic light of one 24 hour period.
In 2014, I’m sure I’ll be back to the sea… again.
P.S. My New Years resolution is to significantly increase the number of collectors of my Fine Art Prints. So…if you, or anyone you know is looking for iconic sea, land or cityscapes, or intimate portraits of animals or jellyfish…send them to http://www.barrystevengreff.com or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s to 2014.

Last Glimmer of Light, Winter Park CO 2007
Missing the snow and cold weather this winter, I am posting a couple of old favorites that I have previously posted. The trick with photographing snow is to not over-expose the white stuff. Best accomplished in overcast weather, make sure to keep the detail in snow by capturing edges, footprints or anything else that might break up the all white scene. The situation above was an exception to the rule. The very last glimmer of sunlight was disappearing behind the mountains and barely highlighted the far away peak. The low clouds and tree-line below makes this winter scene. In the printed image, you can clearly see snow on all the trees and the ridges in the snow on the peak.
Equine Snow Scene, Winter Park CO 2007
Above, this beauty stood alone in a fenced-in meadow with a bare forest behind. Seeing this perfect winter scene, I pulled over and captured the image before the animal moved and the composition was gone.
In December, the Colorado Rocky Mountains are truly a …winter wonderland.

This one is for Richard. Our friend, colleague and all around great guy.
The message he left us will always be true…that he is out fighting for truth, justice and the American way.
