Canal Park Lighthouse

My wife and I were in Duluth for a concert last weekend.  This provided an opportunity for a photo I have tried to make a couple of times, but the weather never agreed, and clouds, fog or rain prevented.  I knew this time of year the sun would rise into a position that it would appear to sit atop the Canal Park lighthouse.  I used an application called The Photographer’s Ephemeris and found the general area I needed to be to capture the image.

Monday morning, the skies were clear, and I was able to capture the image below.

A Couple from Beartooth Pass

I was in Montana for my cousin’s wedding last weekend, and decided to make use of the trip to get over towards Yellowstone for a couple of days after the wedding.  It was mentioned to me that I might want to make my way through Beartooth Pass if at all possible, as it was supposed to be one of the best roads out there.  I can attest to this, as the drive not only provides some stunning views, it was the most enjoyable drive I have ever done.  If you are not one for curves, heights and enjoy a technical drive, it may not be for you…but I fully understand why there were so many motorcycles and sports cars on the road with me…as it was pure fun.

It’s Been awhile

I know it has been a long while since a fresh post has been made.  But I was shooting pretty steadily up until November 2015.  Then work got a little hectic, and the camera didn’t come out much over the winter.  But I have been shooting pretty regularly again for the past month…I just haven’t been posting.  One of the things that I have started to take a shot at has been architectural photography.  Right now, I am focusing more on the entire structures….I seem to be seeing the lines and curves of buildings more so that detail.  I found that kind of odd being when it comes to automotive photography, it is the detail that I lean towards.

I have also been working on some timelapse stuff as well.  I have a few short 10-12 second snippets I am currently working on as I get familiarized with the technique and learning to see movement.  Once I get some of the clips done, I will post them up as well.
