Splash Walls I2017's "Splash Walls" was one of my most popular captures of the year on my Social Media Accounts and Art Shows. But more important to me was that this was the first time that the two biggest inspirations of my life accompanied me. My future wife and our bond of joy baby boy charged me positively. It was our little one's first sunrise and for that alone, I will always cherish these magical moments. When we arrived I noticed roughly 30 photographers shooting from the north side of the pier - so I decided to go to the south side of the pier and catch the sunrise with Anglin's Fishing Pier in front of it. Oddly enough I saw only two other photographers on the south side of the pier. So with the camera ready in hand I got as close as possible to the waves without getting wet and laid down on my stomach for the shot.
A glimpse from belowI captured 2017's A Glimpse from Below" at sunrise in September. With my camera firmly set on my tripod, I then began taking multiple shots for my (HDR) High-dynamic-range sets.
Blu DeerfieldI captured 2017's Deerfield Blu just before sunrise in September. As I prepared my camera for a long exposure shot I noticed a subtle blue haze take over the environment. I quickly adjusted my camera to a desired focal point and...Deerfield's warmly lit pier works as the perfect counterbalance to the calm, cool but undeniable blue haze. When reflected on the tranquil ocean's surface this stunning moment is easily captured in time.
Castillo San CristóbalOn the first morning, I woke up early so that I may experience a refreshing sunrise in Old San Juan. After walking around Old San Juan for several hours observing and absorbing my wonderful culture I began to wonder why it had taken me so long to come back. Regardless, I decided I would attempt to come back home more often... 10 years - It was my first time back since 2007 but as expected Puerto Rico's atmosphere enchanted me as much as it energized me. "I pray that my final days are here home en El Borinquen."
Morning CalmI captured 2017's "Morning Calm" with the idea of framing the bottom of the photo with the subtle waves from that tranquil morning.

Deerfield GoldOn a cool September morning in South Florida, I captured 2017's Deerfield Gold. It was my first time visiting Deerfield's captivating Pier so like a curious child I attempted to capture every angle with absolute focus and wonder. This to me was the golden moment, the golden shot. Hence' Deerfield Gold.
The Rising SplashI captured "The Rising Splash" early 2017 with my smartphone. At that time this particular smartphone was a replacement for the supposedly "volatile" Note. A phablet which in my opinion was exquisitely designed to meet all my needs but none the less risky to own. I quickly learned that the replacement was also able to capture amazing moments. Although I have almost always captured most of my moments with a DSLR, In 2014 I started to capture moments with phablets & smartphones. My lead example is the Note 4, It was the first phablet that I felt truly captured my moments in the most accurate way. Since then I have continued to experiment while producing satisfying results. Pompano's battered 54-year-old pier hasn't been fully operational since Hurricane Sandy swept through in 2012, but according to city leaders, its replacement in 2019 will provide Pompano Beach with a new unique experience.
La Garita I (The Sentry Tower I)Las Garitas de El Viejo San Juan are a national symbol of Puerto Rico. Several weeks prior to Hurricane Maria's malevolent arrival. I was blessed by the love of my life with a trip to Puerto Rico. These next few days, I praised the fortune I shared of my loved island with my beloved ones... On the first morning, I woke up early so that I may experience a refreshing sunrise in Old San Juan. After walking around Old San Juan for several hours observing and absorbing my wonderful culture I began to wonder why it had taken me so long to come back.
