[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It was frigid, as it usually is before sunrise in late December.  But that didn't stop me from making this photograph.  Setup on a tripod, my camera took a number of images as I stood there shivering.  Even with hat and coat and warm boots I was still chilly.  But the arrival of the new day was just beautiful and I was joyful as the sun rose.

This photograph was taken with my Canon 5D Mark II using my Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 set at 52mm focal length. My 5D was set at f/16 at 1/40 of a second shutter speed and an ISO of 100.

This is actually a merge of two photographs, one with the lamp in the tower and the other (with a better sky) without the lamp.  Processed in Lightroom to bring out some detail in the shadows, and then a round in Photoshop for spot removal and a trip to Color Efx Pro for a little color processing.

Fine Art Prints

for Purchase

A little about me . . .

Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens.

Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but can't decide on my next camera) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape and travel photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times!

Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!

Peace,
