Photographer’s note: Captured in CameraRAW with my Canon EOS 5D Mk2 camera and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM zoom lens. RAW conversion and basic edits completed in PSE11, and advanced edits in Photomatix Essentials. Although this image has the look & feel of a classic oil painting, no post-edit brush strokes have been added—it is a straight photograph in that regard.
Storm Clouds over the Caribbean was photographed in Tulum, Quintana Roo, MX on the Yucatan peninsula. The entire peninsula is a bucket list destination for sure, but the Caribbean side is especially beautiful. A trip to the Maya Riviera should definitely include: Tulum; El Ruinas de Tulum and the often overlooked biosphere at Sian Ka’an. Pick any one of the beautiful beachfront hotels in the Zona de Hoteles, or opt for cheaper lodging up in town. Five Star dining and secluded jungle retreats are yours for the asking. This particular image was captured on my way to Sian Ka’an, the 1.3 million acre wildlife reserve and UNESCO World Heritage site. As the title suggests, storm clouds were indeed building over the Caribbean, and finally dumped their payload on me about halfway through the day. However, the drenching was worth it, because they added real drama to the scene—what I would call an interesting sky (with character). This image would look terrific as a large (38 x 48 inch) Canvas Print, it has the look & feel of a classic oil painting, but is actually a straight photograph without any post-edit brush strokes added.
