I'm fortunate to have some amazing clients that keep me busy most of the year. This time of year is a bit slow which allows me to really focus on new products and services to offer my clients in the new year and also to recharge my batteries a bit. One way I do that is getting out and enjoying what mom nature gives us. This morning I popped over to the Thiensville Dam again to see what was going on. I saw a river with a crust of ice, geese, sunrise and a waterfall which allowed me to create this image. It's two images combined. I squeezed the lens opening down to get the falls to slow down. This slower exposure allowed much more orange from the sunrise to build in the image. Then I took a second image with the lens much more open to freeze the moving geese while creating a shallower depth of field. This blurs the background a bit. I then layered the image, added some additional color in the trees, added a gaussian blur to the brush strokes, took out some sun spots and added a slight vignette. Here's the final image. Hope you like it.

Great clouds and cool breezes this afternoon. Here's a short time lapse from this afternoon out on the Port Washington WI breakwater on Lake Michigan. This is about 45 minutes of images taken 15 seconds apart condensed to 8 seconds of video. jamesmeyerphoto.com #yourhomeport #ozaukee #wiwx #cnnweather #midwestmoment #discoverwisconsin
