I found myself in Des Moines last evening to meet with Hubby on his way through. After having dinner together I headed to Capital Hill to capture some evening summer shots of our fine State Capital. I was pleased to see all the construction at the front of the building is finished,the new landscaping with benches and plantings overlooks the city skyline,and the sunset was a lovely one. I also went to the corner to capture the Capital reflected in nthe Wallace Building,the largest funhouse mirror I have ever seen. The image was distorted like a wierd acid effect had melted parts of the building reflected.
After I left the hill, I headed to Grays Lake just South of downtown, I still wanted to capture the colored lights on the padestrian bridge in the park. The last time I tried about a month ago a thunderstorm rolled in before it got dark enough.
The parking lots were full,there were alot of people out enjoying the evening air. There was some wind, so the longer exposures I tried blurred, even though I was using a remote shutter and tripod. The first shot turned out to be the best, Isn't that the way it always goes,LOL
