"Not bad," says this lady who prefers the middle of nowhere to cityscapes. 😉
Not a bad sunset last night over the mountains! I especially like the fact that you can see fine detail of the trees on top of the mountain despite the flat and minimal appearance of this image. Thank you, telephoto lens!
One of the best things about shooting the Moon this time of the year is that, yes, it stays light so late. And it is particularly special when the full Moon falls on the Solstice for the first time in more than fifty years!
I captured tonight’s mysterious near-full Moon in Scorpio rising above the horizon.
These images were shot using the same bulb exposure (in most cases). I suspect the colors are created by particles, atmospheric effects, and the Moon's path through the sky.
(My optics are rusty, and it's late. This is my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!)
I've finally gotten around to assembling 'real' timelapses out of individual images that I've photographed. Naturally, I started with my favorite subject, the Moon.
The individual photographs for the full-Moon video looked like this:
And the final product—like this:
Vine's square format is bothersome, but it seems to retain a slightly higher resolution than the Instagram version.
I photographed the second timelapse tonight and assembled it so as to resemble vintage sci-fi films (including the soundtrack). The individual images I shot look like this:
The final video turned out like this:
Yet again, the Instagram widescreen version is worth referencing in terms of the way this mini-film is meant to be seen, excluding the resolution reduction.
I don't normally end up in this place at this hour, but I'm glad I did, since I was able to witness this subtly lovely and calming scene.
