Although I was here hour prior, I didn't anticipate the situation with the clouds nor did I contemplate shooting a timelapse. Shooting this after the main sunrise, I wanted to show the reflections in the water along with movement with the clouds within them.
In what I assumed to be a rapid clearing of clouds (curse you Intellicast) was seconds of beautiful light and slightly lit clouds. I had seen a tiny beaver off to the left side grabbing some plants and floating under the dock to its home on the other side, he emanates just before the first light blast and floats away.
Being friends with a photographer who's friend is editor of a magazine has its perks. I was able to submit images and was approved to be part of a magazine spread. It is amount one of the biggest thrills of my photographic life.

Local Milwaukee television news station WTMJ puts out a weather calendar each year. I was new in landscape photography at that time, but was thrilled when I was choosen again for the 2004 weather calendar.

The first of two times that I had two images put into the WTMJ 4 calendar. Although it was just a small cover image, it was a bigger confidence booster.

Although this will be bundled under contest & awards, the image was published nontheless. As a third place image I was proud of this. It was hanging at the Wisconsin State Fair that summer.

Canon has been my brand of choice for more than 10 years, it is what I am comfortable with. I use a wide variety of lenses, from Tamron to Samyang and a few Canon lenses. My favorite lens is a 17-35, I used it for most of my landscape and have had the lens for most of my DSLR shooting life. I normally use one tripod at a time, but I do always use one.
I would love to hear from you. I will try may best to get back to you within one to two business days. You can also follow us on Twitter or Facebook to support what we are doing and to see new images.
