Wisconsin River Sunrise

This stretch of the Wisconsin River is one of my favorite locations to watch sunrise.  It is just downstream from a paper mill in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. A gentle southerly wind will direct steam from the mill over the river often resulting in a spectacular sunrise. On the day this image was captured, the sky was clear and a slight mist was rising from the river. Light from the rising sun highlighted both the steam and the rising mist.

This image is a high dynamic range (HDR) constructed from seven separate images. The images were captured using a static aperture but variable shutter speed resulting in a full f-stop between images. Images were combined using Photoshop CS3 and a Photomatix tone mapping plug-in.

    Dr. Sanderson – may I purchase the rights to use this image for our physician recruiting purposes? If so, could you let me know how to go about obtaining your permission? Thank you,
