The Show at the Beach

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.

And to follow the tradition, I took some normal fireworks photos as well.FinishedIMG_1932

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!

Rolling Clouds

FinishedIMG_[5634-5746]

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.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a mediocre photographer. To make up for that though, I am good at post production. (Which is good because I’d be out of work if I wasn’t) This example is a bit of an extreme case of how much things get cleaned up after the fact, but ultimately everything gets some treatment.
