Since I live in the mountains with no coast within a 2 hour drive, the small river near my house was the next best option. AND I highly recommend you download this app for your smartphone: ND Timer. It really helps when trying to figure out the exposure times in the "bulb" setting.

We found quite a few! Unfortunately we couldn't enter them all.... Then we found this beauty! Abandoned but not totally trashed. Very little vandalism or graffiti. A gem of a find! Thanks for looking but be warned....more HDR will be coming down the tubes!  Update July 2014: I re-edited this and made it less HDRish and more like what I actually saw that day. I prefer this version. Thanks again for looking.

Saw this and felt there was something there but never got around to processing it. Now...three years later, I did. Hard to believe it was just three years ago....I really need to go back there again!
