Cool Lines!

There are some cool lines in this photo. The tree appears to be connecting the telephone poles to the mushroom-shaped cloud plume in the sky on the left. The cloud shape is the edge or base of a cumulonimbus cloud system that is dumping heavy rain and thunderstorms in the near distance.

Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at 17mm, ISO 200, f/22, 1/10s. Lightroom curves adjustment, color balancing.

Thanks for visiting!

Clermont Harbor

kleblanc_089

Here's what's left of Pepere's house on Forest Street in Clermont Harbor, MS. The current owner's brother is living ('camping out') on the property. His name is Paul from Canada who says the place had reminded him of his grandmother's before Hurricane Katrina. He's been collecting storm debris to decorate the place (building a shrine / Katrina junk museum). He welcomes visitors and cameras and was very interested in hearing about the family history on the property.

Gulf Coast Lots for Sale

This is typical of what the Bay St. Louis Mississippi back-bay looks like. Plenty of vacant lots for sale and plenty of new construction. This is from our trip in June '08.
