I had taken a shot like this previously at night a long time ago but returned a couple of weeks ago to shoot it at dawn and this time came prepared with a wide angle lens too.


  1. Canon 40D, 10-22mm EFS. FL: 10 mm
  2. 13 seconds @ f8, ISO 100
  3. No Filters
  4. Adobe Lightroom 2 & Adobe Photoshop CS4

Photography for me is an outlet, a way I can express myself through images rather than words. I look at the subjects I shoot from every possible angle that I can imagine and with the right light, the vision in my head becomes a reality. My passion for it began after high school and over the past several years it has become my release, my way of seeing from a different perspective..
