Here’s a little thing I shot on my phone while boarding the Kingston ferry yesterday.
I shot this on my old 30d the night before the 4th of July.
Watching reflections is always enjoyable. This held true on the fourth of July as well.
I spent the night watching for the flicker of a lighter, then get ready to start the long exposure.
The glowing orb is the moon. It’s been bright these past nights.
I have dozens of these, but I feel like the novelty of it wears off quick.
But I may as well include one more for good measure.
This looks small, but for scale reference, look at the house and the people in the lower left corner. It was definitely not small.
This looks like a palm tree, which means it’s about time for me to make like a tree and leaf!
This was an experiment with doing macro time-lapse. (The pinecone is about the size of your thumbnail) I thought it would be interesting to have shadows move over the pinecone, but it turned out it was much more interesting just having it in the sun and watching it open up some. I will definitely be playing with this more.
Last week I took a much needed day off and time-lapsed a few clouds. I love watching time-lapse of clouds. It gives them life and movement that are almost impossible to grasp by just watching them in person. Soon as to changes the speed and context though, they give the sky a mood and a story.
These were in about a 4 mile area in the hills outside of Wenatchee.
The day was lovely enough, that even with four applications of sunblock, I managed to get sunburns.
