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!

I asked the dock to stay still. It tried its best.
