Yesterday I went back to Kohler Andrae to catch the dusk there. Being on the sand dunes while the sun sets gives awesome photo oppurtunities:
This pictures and other scenes like it are just plain breathetaking.
Its been about 2 years, but I finally managed to get myself up at 3:30am and drive 2 hours to catch the sunrise at Port Washington. It took me the whole day to recover from such a switch in schedule but it was worth it. Catch such scenery is just breathetaking:
Its the scenery you could only dream of. I want to catch the stars over (...)
I finally got around to Peninsula State Park during the autumn leaves bloom and it was great. The shoreline lined with orange/red leaves was one to behold and made photos like this possible:
Went for a short 2-day trip of Door County Today and hit stopped both a Sister Bay and Ellison Bay. Took photo at their Marinas as it was quite a site. Wish I had a full-frame Camera with me though.
Sister Bay Marina:
And Ellison Bay Marina at night:
I'm getting better (...)
Went for a Short trip to Lake Kegonsa State Park for some night pictures. Discovered I needed to keep the exposure time to less than 30 seconds or there will be distortion with the stars. But the docks were nice:
And like I said at 30 secs there is distortion on the stars, this is what I mean, I think I need (...)
Went back to one of the most beautiful places in Wisconsin -- The cliffs of Wyalusing State Park last week and it was great. Using longer exposures and other techniques, I was able to photograph the Mississippi River Valley at Dusk:
Went to Devil's Lake again tonight. It was completely clear and the sky was full of stars. The trees and lake made great night objects to place the stars against:
Loved this shot. Found a decent way to deal with noise at high ISO but still hoping to get a Canon 5d MKIII (...)
Went to Wildcat Mountain for the first time in two years again for some dusk and night photos. The stars were pretty good:
There's still a lot of noise in the night photos. The T2i doesn't work well at high ISOs. Need a MK3, but can't afford the $2500 and another $800 for a lens. I did get a (...)
My last stop in the state of Colorado was Garden of the Gods near Colorado Springs, Colorado. The rock structures were great in the garden and the overall landscape was very beautiful. Its also free(I think, didn't see a ticket booth).
By the ways, this place is now called "Garden of the Bobs" since (...)
The first part of the Nexy Day's Journey brought me to Pike's Peak. The hike is 13 miles one-way and I didn't have 2 days to blow unfortunately so I had to settle for the drive. However, my car overheated because of the high grade and I had to walk the last bit to the top of the Peak. However, the view was great:
