High winds are blowing down Lake Superior today creating large waves at the western end of the lake. At the time this image was taken, winds were running around twenty five miles an hour. Later in the day, the winds are predicted to grow in intensity and I will try to return to see how things look.
Another visit to the St. Louis River as it flows through Jay Cooke State Park.
As intriguing as this image is, it represents a tragedy. I dropped the pouch with my Sony RX100 Mk5 on the garage floor and ran over it. Amazingly, the camera actually works! This certainly says something for Sony build quality. However, I do not have access to any of the display functions and the viewfinder will not pop up. I’ve taken photos with each of the settings on the camera and now have a rough idea of the setting for each of them. I did speak with a camera shop to see if it was worth repairing, they guess-ti-mated at least $200-$400. It would cost me $45 to send it in and get an official estimate.
This image could also have been better with a shorter exposure to bring out the detail in the flowing water.
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Tamron SP 28-75mm F/2.8, ISO 50, f/11, 20 sec, 10 stop ND filter.
In hindsight, I think I could have gone with a lesser stop filter and shorter exposure to maintain more detail in the water.
Although I was enjoying being near Lake Superior and Split Rock Lighthouse, this single pussy willow bush caught my attention.
