More time lapse photography

So I got done with ripping the roof off the porch, soaked in a hot bath, cleaned up and decided to go out taking pictures.  I’m really liking this time lapse thing.

I started off trying to get anther nice set of pictures of the sun setting, but the clouds were too thick on the horizon and it didn’t look like things were going to turn out too spectacular.  That and my camera seemed to be possessed at that spot.  When doing time lapse I use my wireless remote to click the pictures.  That keeps me from moving the camera and doesn’t jiggle the camera blurring the picture when it’s dark out.  I’m counting every 15 seconds and hitting the button when the camera starts taking random shots.  Sometimes 2 or 3 in a row, sometimes 6 seconds apart.  Then it would go a minute or two without taking any extraneous pictures, just to start up all over again.   This lasted for about 15 minutes, and then all of a sudden stopped.

But I noticed that the clouds on the south east end of the valley were a lot more interesting than the sunset, so I switched my attention down there.  Here’s the compilation of the time lapse segments:

And here are a few singles of the shots I took:

I’m going to try some other stuff with time lapse, so expect to see more here.

Really cool pics. Its good you saw the clouds over Mt. Olympus last night. We were out for dinner and coming back along 215 they looked like they were funneling into the mountains. They also had different shades of color and sun so there was a lot of depth. Thanks for the time lapse.

Wow. I haven't heard the WKRP in Cincinnati song in 3 decades. Mind blowing.
