Those who don’t live around here may not know, but Lake Erie has it’s own monster. Bessie, as she’s known, has been sighted off and on for nearly two centuries.
Personally, I’ve never seen the serpent. I have recently come across another Lake Erie Monster though, the Great Lakes Brewing Co’s tribute to Bessie. This IPA just recently hit store shelves near me, and on the recommendation of a good friend I picked up a pack. I’m not typically a big fan of pale ales, but all I can say is Yumm!
I shot this with a bit of a different lighting setup, looking for a high key effect. I had to re-shoot three times before I got exactly the effect I was after. I’m not even completely happy with this one due to the reflection of my lights in the bottle. But considering that I was sampling the subject between shoots, and that this beast is over 9% alcohol by volume, there wasn’t going to be a fourth shoot! 🙂
