A sunset with lifeguard hut. I used a motion effect centered on the hut to give this effect. Thought you might like it…

Holiday Surf…

Hi all,

Hope you are all having a great holiday season.

I was walking off some of the Christmas goodies and getting some fresh air and a little exercise around Hermosa Beach. There was only a few surfers around the pier and not much of a swell but caught this shot before heading off  home. Hope you like it.

New Images up on Behance


Under Hermosa Pier by Mike-Hope

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know I have some new black and white images on and thought you mike like to take a look and let me know what you think, as this is seems to be a good show case for the new Sony A7Rii pics that I have taken recently. I trying to keep them all B&W for the moment but will probably add some color as I go along. I have to say I still love the camera and haven’t bought a dedicated Sony lens yet. Still saving!!

The other side of Behance is the Adobe site MyPortfolio which comes bundled with the Adobe Cloud subscription.


Thanks for taking a look…


A walk on the Beach…

Just walking around on Hermosa Beach when the weather was a little less pleasant and left the beach a little empty, I grabbed a chance for this late afternoon shot with the new Sony A7Rii and an old Canon FD 28mm manual focus just topped it off with a few sailing boats enjoying the high breeze before  returning to Redondo King Harbor…
