Grand Marais Minnesota Sunset

It pays to hang in there. I had thought about going home but decided to stay in town to see if I could get a decent sunset shot. Everything came together as I waited in the cold north wind. Actually forgot I had the ISO set from the moonrise shot but hey it worked!
1/125 second exposure, F/20, Circular polarizing filter at ISO of 2000 on my Nikon D700.

Everyday presents a new photo opportunity..."Hang in there" and shoot!

Split Rock Moonrise

I found myself at Split Rock State Park this week. I wanted to check the park out for future shooting opportunites. I met another photographer who said I might have to move over a bit. Huh? As he talked I realized he was there to shoot the moonrise! Soon the shore filled with more photographers. Sometimes you get lucky! Doesn't say much about my planning does it? I was blessed with a beautiful moonrise and all in all time well spent.

Every day presents a new photo opportunity...so keeping looking and shoot!
