Down to the Lake

At the end of the road is the boat launch, will have to return on a better day with a boat and fishing rod.

Superior Dawn

The reward of being willing to get oneself out of bed early in the morning are moments like this.

Canon 5D Mark IV, ISO 50, 15mm, f/10, 3.2 sec and the usual mucking about to achieve the desired effect.

 

Autumn Road

Since the sun wouldn’t work with me, I chose to push the colors a bit to achieve the desired effect.  I think if the light had been a bit brighter, the image would have a more natural tone.

After Dark

Recently, after hearing that there would be better than normal northern lights, I headed out to my chosen destination and set up for the show.  Sadly, it turns out the show started after I gave up and went home; however, I at least tried to capture some night sky shots, something I haven’t done much of.  The results are a good starting point to help me learn how to do better in the future and how to improve my post production.  One lesson is to not pick a very windy night as it leads to camera shake on the tripod.  Next time I will not extend the tripod all the way open, keeping more rigid and close to the ground.
