Thanks for the kind words Robert, glad you enjoyed the images.
As for the north shore, it's late fall at this point for the area (quite a few leaves were already down as of yesterday) and there were 30-40 mph gusts today. Fall is on its way out. 40% chance of snow tomorrow - that should theoretically take care of any remaining mosquitoes.
I live in Sioux Falls and regularly shoot in MN. I use a Chamonix 045n and also an 1880s vintage Watson & Son half plate camera. I mostly use vintage or historic lenses, 1847-1920s. I photo at night a lot. In the past I've mostly photo'd moving trains at night using Nikon DSLR and about 10,000ws of flash power. This year I'm going to start using my 4x5 & b&w some to do my flash/train shots on the BNSF Marshall sub. I've already started using my 1951 Rolleiflex for that and like the results. I also like abandoned farms, and machinery. I took a number of photos at Rollag with my 4x5.
