A breath taking view of San Francisco downtown from the twin peaks viewpoint. And thats another skyline any photographer would fall in love with 🙂 As for the title, the light streaks on the road look like lava flowing through, dont you think so? 🙂
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..

As a child, I remember watching this sculpture in countless movies/cartoons. I finally got a chance to visit it last weekend and boy was I mesmerized by the sheer scale of it. There are thousands of pictures available for this landmark on the internet and I wanted to capture something unique, atleast I tried to do something unique :). I shot this at around 8 in the evening, just before the start of the lighting show. The sky had some heavy storm clouds and it was perfect for some long exposures. 30 seconds later, this was the result.
A video showcasing its construction for 14 years from 1927 was shown before the start. It still amazes me to learn that they could achieve this sculpting marvel about 80 years back!

‘Superior’ view at Duluth
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
