This was an HDR time-lapse from Twin Peaks. It was a glorious moment because mother nature was behaving, unlike the last 2 early morning efforts where I was too fogged in. I was also shooting with my new Nikon D700 and a new 14-24mm ultrawide which is just a great combo since the D700 is a full frame camera!
There were a lot of long nights and early mornings, most of the time it was really cold and foggy. Living on top of a hill allowed me to look out and observe what the clouds, fog, and light would do. When it looked right, I went out and hoped for the best.
This time lapse took about a year to put together. I chose "Paradise" because San Francisco is that to me. You can be in the heart of an urban jungle one minute, and the next you can be at the beach enjoying the sunset. I guess that's what makes San Francisco unique, and well, perfect. I know I didn't cover every part of SF in this piece, but I hope that this gives you all a better idea of the beauty that this city has. It was pretty fun putting this piece together and I'm looking forward to making another soon.
