Shadowness - HillbillyDeluxe I'm Tom. I like photography. And hockey....LOVE hockey! C'mon Pookie... en winter is the new black <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />After a great day of Christmas skiing, I happened upon this small lake. A perfect way to end the day! Tip: When you return from being in the cold outdoors, don't take your gear out of your bag. Leave it there and let it warm up slowly to room temperature. Condensation wreaks havoc on electronics and lenses.

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.

Best 29 bucks I've spent in a long time! There's a link at the bottom of to a PDF in English for more info about this area.

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!
