Cellpic Sunday – 7 May 2017

Breezy Point, Minnesota.

Last weekend, my Civil Air Patrol role brought me to a resort in Northern Minnesota. The resort at Breezy Point has a history going back to the 1920’s when wealthy publisher Wilfred Hamilton (“Captain Billy”) Fawcett built a home and a lodge big enough to accommodate around 700 people. You can now rent the home, and bring all your friends. It’s nine bathrooms and 11 bedrooms can support a large family gathering easily. In an upcoming feature, I will share a gallery of high dynamic range (HDR) images captured at the resort.

About the photo: I woke early on our last day there to capture the morning sunrise. This early cellpic from my Samsung S7 seemed to foretell the upcoming colorful sunrise display. As it turned out, this was about as good as it got. The cloud layer thickened as the sun rose and eventually the sunrise was lost in the shade. Captured at f/1.7; 1/60 sec.; ISO-80. The rule for Cellpic Sunday is simple. The image must be captured on a mobile device.
