Just this past month, Vanguard Professional Thomas Nighswander visited Lake Michigan and took along his trusty ABEO Pro 283CT tripod for the trek. Check out some of his images below and then click through to his blog for more!



"This February I traveled to the west side of my home state of Michigan to capture images of frozen Lake Michigan and it’s numerous lighthouses," Nighswander said.

"With our unseasonably warm weather this year the lake was open water, but the lighthouse’s did have some ice on the pier. I decided what a great opportunity to try out my Vanguard ABEO PRO 283CT carbon fiber tripod."

"I wanted to use the spiked feet feature on the slippery surface…and I have to say the ABEO PRO 283CT PRO performed admirably."



"After a couple cold hours of shooting my travel partner and I decided to drive North to the sandy beaches of Silver Lake Dunes and The Little Sable Lighthouse."



And here was the amazing result of Thomas' Silver Lake Dunes detour.



Visit Thomas Nighswander's blog for the complete set of images, and be sure to follow him on Facebook to stay up to date on his many travels and award winning landscape photography, as well as his successful National Photography Workshops.


A quick note... The ABEO Pro 283CT has since been discontinued, however we recommend the ABEO Pro 283CGH or ALTA Pro 283CT.
Special thanks to Thomas Nighswander!
