Sunset Pond

A peaceful evening overlooking the water. The temps have been a little more bearable this week in the 80s with lower humidity. How is the weather where you are?

Lake Sunset Long Exposure

This is a long exposure image using an ND1000 (10 stop) filter. The longer shutter speed time gives the water a smooth texture. Settings were: SS 4 sec, f/14, ISO 100

Just as a comparison, below is the same shot as a regular exposure without a filter. You can see how it now shows the ripples on the water. Settings were: SS 1/125 sec, f/14, ISO 160. I also didn’t take the time to edit out the power lines in this one πŸ™‚

Both images were taken with the Sony a7 III and edited in Capture One and Snapseed.

Sunset Shots on an Illinois Interstate

Took these while traveling through Illinois from Milwaukee to St. Louis last week for my daughter’s volleyball tournament.

Sometimes taking pictures of the scenery, even if it’s blurry and through a dirty window, helps keep me sane on those long car rides.
