Lake Michigan Sunrise

The sun had just crested the horizon when I shot this. This is the shore of Lake Michigan very near the North Avenue Beach. This image was shot as a bracket of three images in 2010 and then I ignored the photos till a couple days ago. This was a super cold morning in Feb.

I processed the HDR using Aurora HDR Pro. The more I use the software the more I am liking how it works. It definitely has a softer look. It’s more Le Tigre and less Blue Steel.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
