This is a sunrise over Lake Michigan, behind the Kewaunee, WI pier and lighthouse. I like the way this photo gives the viewer a good idea of just how long this pier extends into the lake.
Because I combined four separate images (each 24mb) to create this image, it resulted in a huge file. The file was large enough to choke my computer to a near standstill. It took me many hours, twiddling my thumbs while it processed, to arrive at the final product.
Unfortunately, the narrow format of my website doesn’t do justice to the panoramic view. To view a larger version – one that will stretch the full width of your monitor – click on the image.
The earth begins to stir to as the sun lights up the horizon. This is the pre-sunrise image I captured yesterday morning.
To get all this sky into one image I had to take three individual shots and then combine them
This was how I saw it and captured it from my backyard. These are the kind of colors I want to photograph near the lake and lighthouses for, but on a work day I can’t make that happen. Sometimes you have to settle for what you can get and know, some other day, it will be different. Where were these clouds and color last Saturday?
