Lake Michigan / Gillson Park Wilmette 3/28/15
In the 20's.
Some days I just hope for a little ice. With evening temperatures in the 20's plus wind speeds in the teens, I felt that we might get a little ice back on the beach. The sun beat me to the horizon as I could already see its glow above the trees as I drove into Gillson Park, but it's not seeing the sunrise that I desire. It is that illuminating glow that transforms otherwise mundane objects into magic.
This was the very first shot of the day, a relatively simple foreground subject with the water blurred with a longer exposure using ND filters. I'm stacking a 2 stop along with a variable ND for about 6 stops of ND.
This was a good start to shooting with an hour of photographing that only ended because I could not feel the shutter anymore with frozen fingers.
