Test Shot

Awhile back I invested in ND filters with the intention that I would begin to learn to use them properly.  I’ve read, watched videos and studied other photographer’s work in preparation.  I also added an app to my phone to help me determine the correct timing based on camera settings.  After a couple of failed test shots, I managed to get one that gives me hope that with a bit more practice, I will be able to capture more shots using the filters.

States of Water

A Lovely Day at the Beach

There’s nothing like a little sun, a lot of water and some time to wander the shoreline.  Even in the cold of northern Minnesota there is reason to explore the nooks and crannies of the rocky shore of Lake Superior.  Being an ice hunter, I go searching for the creations of nature while they persist, but knowing that what exists today will be gone tomorrow.  However, in it’s place will be new creations formed by wind, water and cold.
