Morning Sojourn

I stop by here every morning on the way to work. The Des Moines Marina and fishing pier. Of course it's dark-o-thirty when I stop by, this time of year. As I was sitting there eating my oatmeal and listening to Glen Beck prophesize about the coming economic and social Apocalypse, I was quite taken by the fog rolling across the water at the end of the pier. I decided to break out the camera and tripod once again to get yet another shot, to add to the hundreds that I already have, of the fishing pier. I made sure to turn off the radio, as I had the door of my van open, to insure that anyone passing by wouldn't catch me listening to Beck. I accidentally bumped my ISO up to 2000 before I took this shot. Actually this is a HDR of five shots run through Photomatix. One of the exposures was up to thirty seconds long. I really like this shot because of all the different lights. The light and shadows from the pier, covering the beach on the right is quite fascinating to me. I just love shooting at night. Coming back and discovering what the camera captures in post is such a adventure.


Thank God tomorrow's Friday, and thank you God for this wonderful day too. :)

Have a good one!
