Lake Erie Overhead by morganpt

On the night of the June 26th storm over Lake Erie, I headed to the Marblehead lighthouse to make pictures. The night was chaotic, with a wild lake, crazy wind (40mph), and rain everywhere (3.5 inches that day). The story here: http://ift.tt/1H11GhQ

To get the “dramatic angle” amidst the crashing waves, I climbed to a rock outcropping, held my camera above the water, and took a series of handheld shots at 1/4s and 8fps. For the bottom part of the image, my camera was completely submerged. I combined two of those images to get this.

As usual, best seen large on black. Press “H” and “M”

Lake Erie is Mad by morganpt

On June 27th, gale force winds swept across Lake Erie and churned up the waters to cover most of Port Clinton, including some homes. Here is the storm, a bit calmer the morning of the next day. I also put up a Color version, after today, I’ll delete the one that is less “popular.” I’m really interested in what folks think!!!

This shot is a composite of three shots – one for the sky, one for the midground water (that wave) and one for the water in the foreground. The settings are:

Sky shot – ISO 200. f10, 10secs, B+W 3.0 ND filter
Midground Water – ISO 800. f4.5, .7s, B+W 3.0 ND filter
Foreground water – ISO 800. f8, 2.3 secs, B+W 3.0 ND filter

Lake Erie is Angry by morganpt
