I wish I could show you the pebbles in this shot 🙂 But the reason I framed it this way was to highlight the serene water and pleasing twilight colors.
Location: Pebble beach, @ Split rock state park, Silver bay, MN.
This is a 115 second exposure with a moist lens and a wet tripod as bonus 🙂
Split Rock is one of the oldest lighthouses in USA. Built in 1910 at a cost of $75000 it boasted an advanced lens/light system imported from France. I took this shot around 6 in the evening… and the smooth water is the result of a 76 second exposure..

Searching my archives, i found this gem. Minneapolis has a well established light rail transit system and this is one of the stations at the MSP international airport. The tunnel walls are not actually gold as the title suggests (duh! :P) but its the result of a 5 exposure HDR created from a single file. HDRs work best when you want to emphasize colors and textures in a scene.
This is lake superior, again. I shot this at Duluth, MN at around 5AM in the morning, before sunrise. Look straight into the frame and you will find a clear horizon with a hard transition between sky and the lake.
This is a 63 seconds exposure at F9. Please also take a look at the color version of this pic HERE
A lovely sunset view over lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. Took this shot using my friends new camera. The ‘twinkle’ effect on sun is due to the small lens aperture used to capture this scene. Somehow, it looks better in black & white 🙂
A big hello to everyone! My first post in Noisy Pilgrims 🙂 This is Sri Dhanush from Minneapolis, MN, USA. I am currently pursuing my masters here.
I took this shot behind my house. Its a quick and dirty HDR just before the sunset that i took sometime back. Love the way the sky and sun turned out in this one.
