1. St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. This sequence was taken just east of the lighthouse looking east. The mud flats were exposed but the tide was starting to come in. There are nice antipodal crepuscular rays as Venus' Belt rises (i.e., the shadow cast by the earth.) I had used the "spot remover" function in Lightroom when processing the images, and it left an interesting artifact that affected the waxing gibbous moon as it passed through it. Won't do that again.

  2. A dappled North Florida summertime afternoon in the backyard. It was a dynamic day with passing clouds and nice breezes to moderate the heat. Used a 35 sec interval, f22, 30 sec exposure w/ a ND 2.0 filter. Roughly, a four hour sequence. T3i with w/ 18mm lens.

  3. This is the prosaic view out of my office window looking at the parking lot around the end of lunch time. Looks like chaos in real time too! If you're quick, you'll notice the City worker flushing the water line. I should do a time lapse near quitting time and put the Benny Hill theme music as background. Don't remember what I used. I think 30 sec interval with +/- 10 sec exposure, f22, ND 3.0, & ISO 100.

  4. St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. This is my first attempt at holy grail time lapse. Not very good, but it has an appeal. I caught the trailing edge of a fast moving cold front which is very dramatic. Unfortunately, I couldn't use a ND filter with my fish eye. I used a fast shutter, tight aperture, and low ISO, but the brilliant sun still blew out everything. I used manual blub ramping trying to watch the histogram in live view; so there is a lot of time lapse flicker. Practice makes perfect...

  5. View from the bird feeders to the back porch. Marie & I are having a lazy dinner of pasta with wine as the Golden Hour passes. It looks like we are wolfing our pasta down, but it is actually about a half-hour. The wine took a little longer. Compressing time with time lapse makes visible patterns of movement not easily noticeable in real time. I never realized how trees resonate in soft wind. The bird seed is infested with little insects. Hopefully the birds enjoy them too. The light changes from brilliant yellow to muted greys. Wendy the cat is an obsessive bather. Marie points to a Barred Owl hooting overhead.

    They say that it takes about 10,000 hours of practice before you become expert in something. These time lapses are products of my first few hours.
