Drive north on Hwy 61 from Duluth, MN for approximately one hour and you will arrive at Split Rock State Park. Once in the park, drive down to Pebble Beach. Then walk toward the lake and you will see the island.
I used a Hoya 9 stop Neutral density filter and stopped down to F/22 to get a 47 second exposure. The long exposure recorded the movement in the clouds and created this dramatic, moody feeling. Technical info: Camera: Pentax K20D Lens: Pentax DA* 16-50mm F/2.8 Exposure: 47 Aperture: f/22.0 Focal Length: 28 mm ISO Speed: 100
