Santa Cruz Sunrise

Sunrise in Santa Cruz, California and I have switched themes to the beautiful Hew.

I plan on uploading larger images in the future and of course they’ll all be CC-BY-SA.

A Curious Seagull

A seagull on the pier in Santa Cruz, California.

This was taken early one morning on a sunrise photowalk with Marcus. It was so early I almost slept in and had to hurry to catch up with him!

Star Trails in Utah

Star trails around the North Star, Polaris in Utah, United States.

This is a long exposure shot of 930 seconds shot at f/8. The night was fairly clear but cloud crept in during the long exposure. It was a glorious night. We were up in the mountains and away from most light pollution apart from the huge hotel 200m away to the right but you have to have some comfort, right?

Next time I’m going to try stacking shorter exposures using StarStaX and I have to avoid “bright” foreground objects. This photo was pushed too much and shows too much noise. 🙁

Braving Warm Waters at Seaside

2010-09-14-0404-m

Seaside, the town where The Truman Show was filmed is in Florida. Automattic held a Grand Meetup there in 2010. It was so warm and humid during the day that I rarely went out.

We went for a photowalk at 7:30am one morning before the heat got unbearable. By the time we finished an hour later it was just getting too uncomfortable.
