- This photo of the Battleship Wisconsin as reflected in the Suntrust building in downtown Norfolk has an almost abstract look after applying a little HDR effect. Still not sure if I like it but thought it was a different view of an often photographed Hampton Roads landmark. Canon G11, 1/320 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200.

Wisconsin Fog

- The early morning fog burns off a valley near Spring Green Wisconsin. This fog went from completely dense to gone in about 20 minutes as the morning sun rose above the hills and burned off the fog. Thanks to Cindy for dragging my butt out of bed to capture this image. Canon 7D, 1/200 sec @ f/11.0, ISO 100.

Shining Brow

"Shining Brow" is the literal translation of "Taliesin" the Welsh name Frank Lloyd Wright gave to his 1911 country home and studio in Southwest Wisconsin near Spring Green. Wright positioned the home on the "brow" of a hill, a favorite of his from childhood, rather than on the peak so that Taliesin would appear as though it arose naturally from the landscape. Canon 7D, 1/60 @ f/16, ISO 200.

House on the Rock Resort

- We are staying at the House on the Rock Resort in Spring Green Wisconsin for a few days. The resort is is a very cool building built on a hill side over looking the golf course. This view is from across the 1st fairway lit by the late afternoon sun. Beautiful blue sky day in Southwest Wisconsin. Canon 7D, 1/15 sec @ f/22, ISO 100.

337 - Nose Job

From 365 Project
The bow of the USS Wisconsin at its pier in Norfolk Virginia. This is not the original bow. In May 1956 she collided with destroyer USS Eaton in a heavy fog off Virginia. The Wisconsin's bow suffered heavy damage, the Eaton fared much worse. A 120-ton 68-foot long section of the bow of the uncompleted battleship Kentucky was used to replace Wisconsin's damaged bow resulting in the largest "nose job" in history. The Wisconsin's nickname "WisKy" comes from shorted versions of Wisconsin and Kentucky. Canon 7D, 1/125 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 100, 27mm equivalent focal length.
