A photographic journey throughout the State of Wisconsin during different seasons, all captured by Chris Biela between October 2015 and January 2017 on a Canon 5D Mark III.
All seasons of amazing nature from my neighboring state. There is more to it and it is impossible to capture it all. Most of my pictures were taken in State Parks, State Forests and city of Milwaukee. I would love to add some more sequences from northern part of the state but that is my plan for next project. One of my best nights shooting was photographing perseids in Gov. Thompson State Park. In the summer of 2016 when camping in the park lots of my night time lapses came out really bad because of changing temperature causing my lenses to fog. I traveled over four hours to get to the place with really small light pollution and ended up with basically couple of time lapses but witnessed amazing astronomical spectacle. Afraid of bears (we saw one a mile away from camp), wolfs howling, coyotes passing by I stayed all night watching meteor shower display. With almost 60 meteors visible per hour that is something you will never forget. Hot summers, early sunrises, frozen waterfalls, lakes, rivers, colorful trees in the fall, snowy and cold winters, beautiful sunsets, lots of wild life. All you can find in Badger State. Breathtaking views from Devils Lake State Park, Kettle Morain State Park, Kohler-Andrae State Park, city of Milwaukee, city of Sheboygan, Wausau and many more. All shots taken with Canon 5D Mark III, two Manfrotto tripods. Edited in Lightroom 5 and Sony Movie Studio 13. I shot around 25000 stills for this project.
