I've revived my interest in photo impressionism (for art purists, post-impressionism). This effect is done in the camera, not in Photoshop. With the right light the effect can be accomplished with multiple exposures or with motion and a slow shutter speed. In this case I used a slow shutter speed with a wide open aperture and an ISO of 125.

With the cooler weather comes more opportunities to marvel at the evening stars; maybe even catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis. Think of all you would miss if you didn't take the time to look...

Four brave (or is that crazy?) kayakers enjoyed the challenge of tumultuous waters and freezing temperatures on Lake Red Rock today. With 15 mph NW winds gusting to 25 mph the conditions weren't quite difficult enough for our resident expert kayaker, John Pearson, to practice for his up-coming skills exams. John is testing for his ACA Level 4 Instructor Certification - a multi-day testing situation on Lake Michigan in conditions that make today's conditions on Lake Red Rock look like calm water. Good Luck John ~ we know you can do it!
