There are few things more relaxing and reliably beautiful and yet unique than watching a Caribbean sunset. Time lapse video.
K Street in Washington DC is famous for being the center of the lobbying universe.
The Marine Corps Memorial, more commonly known as the Iwo Jima Memorial, sits right next to Arlington National Cemetery on a rise that overlooks the Potomac and with a view of the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and US Capitol.
For Timelapse Tuesday, one my first experiments in timelapse video, this one looking straight down the Reflecting Pool toward the Lincoln Memorial. I love how the seagulls stay in the middle of the Reflecting Pool; I assume there’s something under the water directing flow there.
Another of my early experiments with time lapse video with a stills camera (in this case, a Nikon D300). One thing I particularly like about this one is the way the multiple layers of clouds add depth (or height, I guess).
Lake George, just northeast of the Australian capital city of Canberra, is normally a major freshwater lake. But right now it’s completely dry, a good indication of the kind of drought pretty much the entire continent is suffering.
Whether or not some glass negatives bought for $45 at a garage sale are in fact long lost Ansel Adams originals has been hotly debated of late and got me thinking about my own visit not so long ago to one of Adams’ main stomping grounds, Yosemite National Park in California.
I took this time lapse earlier in the year while visiting friends in the Towamba River Valley. You wouldn’t know it from the video, but it was stifling hot that day–really hot–and the clouds look dramatic but led to no rain, a problem for the region that was afflicted with drought.
Summer tourists swarm over the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in this timelapse video.
A Blue Moon comes around once every few years, but it falls on New Years Eve only every quarter century or so. New Years Eve 2009 was one of those rare occurrences. Since I knew I would have a great view of the moon over the water all evening while celebrating, I figured it would be a good chance to try my first real experiment with night-time time lapse photos.
