Its Roar Awoke the Sun
Niagara Falls
Taken 2/20/2015
I took 2 days off work last week and we went to an indoor waterpark in Niagara Falls, ON.  On Friday morning I planned on getting up to shoot the sunrise right at the edge of the Horseshoe Falls.  Thursday was unbelievably cold out so I wondered about wether I'd actually be able to handle the elements for more than a few minutes with nothing between me and some of the coldest breath Mother Nature had to offer!  Well I decided it was not an option to pass up on this rare opportunity so I set the alarm!  When I got to the van it showed -8 as the current temp.  I shivered while it warmed and suddenly realized I had a problem.  Being the non plan-ahead type I didn't have my gloves...  They were in the hotel room with the sleeping family.  I'll be fine I said.  Well, the wind chill was around -38 and let's just say my hands still burn a little under hot water from the slight frostbite.  Never again will I make that mistake.  I probably could have stayed another 10 minutes otherwise.  That being said I got a bunch of cool shots to share since while I was doing these long exposures I had my wife's camera (better than mine).
This is a 51 second exposure with ISO400 24mm f/8.0 using a B+W 10 stop ND filter.  The ND filter was put on in the car since I knew it would be too cold to screw it on.  This meant I couldn't auto focus or see anything to manually focus, but luckily infinity worked great.
Hope you like!

Remember the first 5 scrapbook photos = profile header?
Happy 4th Birthday +Google+!
:)
 
Thanks to +rahul roy for asking me to make a G+ graphic. It lead me to make my own call to action button for people to add me to their circles. Feel free to use it for your profile or page if interested:
Just make it your 5th photo in your Scrapbook album (or 6th if you want it NOT to show up). If you don't know how to reorganize your photos in albums it's easier than it used to be (picasa web albums workaround)
Just go to your photos -> your albums -> scrapbook -> options -> organize album

My photo was on the local news!
"A local photographer is a finalist in an international photo competition..."
+WKBW TV | Buffalo, NY aired my photo of the South Grand Island Bridge that's in the running for the Viewer's Choice Award in the +American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 2015 Bridge Photo Contest.  It was pretty amazing!  Of course I recorded it and made sure my Mom knew to watch!
Still time left to vote if you haven't already :)

I was always into gadgets and electronics so when computers and the Internet really started to gain traction – I felt right at home. Back then it was download 1 song over the phone line and it would take all night. Now we can get 10 songs in a minute or just add the to the cloud with no delay at all. Studying Media Arts at SUNY Fredonia gave me the building blocks needed to ultimately do anything I wanted with my Mac. My wife Nicole (who totally rocks) also attended Fredonia leaving with a Fine Arts degree in Photography. 10 years later with thousands of projects under our belts I feel confident you’ll be very happy with what we can create you.

Some of the best pizza in the area. I often get slices heated up for lunch. They are always fresh with 5-6 varieties to choose from. Love the regular pepperoni, plain cheese, & sicilian kinds.

Great food, nice atmosphere, a lot of beer on tap. BBQ Brisket sandwich and Blue Cheese Burger (with bacon added) are my favorites. Make sure to grab some of their sides.
