Iceland Waterfalls

date February 10, 2017 location Iceland comments 0 Comments

While I haven't taken any major trips in some time, it has been fun going through my old Iceland pictures. When I first got back from my trip I must have glossed over this one, but looking back it really captures what Iceland was like with the waterfalls, blue skies, mountain ranges and of course waterfalls.

I-290 Through the Fence

After a few failed attempts at finding a good angle of the Chicago sunrise, I crossed over Morgan Street on my way to a UIC parking garage when I found a hole in the fence. This is the Eisenhower expressway from behind a chain link fence.

Today's shot is a long exposure taken from UIC. I used an ND filter and high f-stop to achieve about a 90 second exposure just before sunrise.
