My wife and I spent a long weekend at Mackinac Island last weekend. I decided to start another thread instead of adding to the one I created from last year's visit here.
The ferry to the island actually went under the Mackinac Bridge -- this is the first time in all our visits it took this route. I think it had something to do with their reduced schedule after Labor Day. Anyway, it gave me a new perspective to shoot the bridge.
I also recently purchased a Lee filter kit, and also added a 10-stop Hitech ND filter for the kit (the Lee Big Stopper is back ordered for about 7 months). I experimented with some long exposures during sunset.
A new addition to the island in 2012 was this plate steel sculpture by artist Thomas J. Moran of a prominent Michigan citizen. Tell me if you recognize who this is.
There was a vintage baseball game being played while we were there, played under late 1800 rules -- no gloves, catches on a single bounce were an out, etc. We watched a couple of innings.
Here is one of our favorite historic homes on the island -- it's called Brigadoon, and is next to the Island House hotel we always stay at.
Here's another sunset shot from a different evening. It's not a long exposure, but I did like the outcome.
