Well finally. Today we got enough sunshine for me to get to the lake. I shot this real quick on my way home from work. It was clouding up quickly and we got another drenching late this afternoon!

This reminds of being at one of the parks along the Niagara River in Tonawanda looking across at Grand Island.

Glenn - I love the new picture! It definitely stands out. For anyone else, make sure you go back and see it, because it's very nice.

I had to update my photo. I just wasn't that happy with the first ones, so I made another attempt on Thursday night. I wanted to get a little longer exposure and to include the rotation point. The rays coming up from below are from stray light from the other homes in the neighborhood. 18mm with the FA J 18-35mm lens,ISO 200 . This time about a 10 minute exposure at f/8.

Jon....

I wanted to sharethis with you, seeing as I mentioned it in a different thread. I was attempting to shoot the Perseid Meteor shower a few weeks ago. I wasn't successful in capturing any meteors, but I liked the results anyway. This was my first attempt at very long exposure.

I thought I'd post it under the monthly challenge because I thought it covered 2 different aspects of the "WIDE" theme.

Harriet and Kjell, thanks for the comments, Jay that is some beautiful color! It makes me want to get back to living near the beach after being here in Southern Germany for so long!

I'm changing my sunrise pic for another one from SA. A friend of the family and my workmate, Mncedisi Sitoto, gives us a private guided tour in his home town Uitenhage. Here he's telling us about the 1985 massacre: "The protesters came this way, the system (nickname for the insurrection control forces of the old racist regime) were standing there..."

It was a tricky exposure. To get an acceptable result I had to make two copies of the RAW file, copy the sky from the darker one and paste it in a layer on the lighter version. The sky is still partlyburnt out, but I hope it doesn't look too unnatural.What I need to learn is how to mask properly. Well I'm only fifty and have some thirty years to go according to statistics...
