I had no idea MS was so much into professional photography  – Microsoft Professional Photography.

Dawn in Kirkland

I was pretty happy with my initial hunting trip to Kirkland lake at 4:00 AM and I don’t know if these shots do justice to the place. From the past few days I have learned that waiting is a key in sometimes getting a really nice shot and for these they took me quite a while. But personally I think they came out better than I expected. May they aren’t the best of shots but hey give me a break ok.


They are pretty high exposures and I call them “Under a blood red sky” after U2 album and “Dawn“. Hope I improve in time and hope to get feedback too.
