Happy Friday everybody! This scene presented itself as I was hurrying back to my car on New Year’s Eve after taking the Boom Island Lighthouse image here. My feet were terribly cold, but I could not help myself. The beautiful light on the Minneapolis skyline behind this walking bridge convinced me to take the picture.

I tried getting this shot in one frame, but the sky would not cooperate. Fortunately, the autodetect feature in Magic Lantern only selected to take 3 exposures: 0, -1 and -2 EV. I absolutely love this function for HDR bracketing – what a time and space saver! Without it, this would have been a minimum of 5 exposures, but most likely 9 due to the AEB function on my Canon camera (you can see what I’m talking about in my Current Photographer article here).

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Laugh more!

    Very pretty shot with a great leading line, Jim. That flag is showing there was a stiff breeze. :)

    Love the blue tones Jim, worth the frostbite and loss of toes I’d say

    I like the composition. It looks rather cold from where I’m sitting.
