Trout Museum at Night

Trout Museum at Night

A kind of boring building can become magical at night with the right lighting.  Maybe its the same with people; if we see them in the proper light we find out who they really are…  Maybe that thought is too deep for a Wednesday morning…

Anyhow, this photo is kind of extraordinary in a way.  Not too many years ago this photo would have been impossible.  I took this handheld at 1/30s and ISO 4000.  Big deal you might say.  Well, only a few years ago ISO 4000 was impossible – no film (at least available to a normal person) was that fast and no digital sensor could go that high.  1/30s was also not possible for me as i could not hold the camera steady at that slow speed – and now we have IS systems that compensate for hand shake.  What a wonderful world we are living in now days!

Frosty Morning on the Wiouwash Trail

Frosty Morning

A cold and frosty morning on the Wiouwash State trial – Neenah.  Last night it was really damp and the frost was everywhere this morning.  And then around luch time the snow came in and dropped 4-6 inches.  I took this before work and you can see the mist hanging in the air.  As always I over exposed by about 1/2 a stop to get the snow to white.  I also did a bit of burning in photoshop to smooth out the trial.
