January 6-9

A quick catch up post on the last couple days:

JANUARY 6:

This is a shot of a tree trunk chandelier in the Sacramento airport.  It's a pretty interesting piece to look at and it's part of their new terminal that also has a giant rabbit in it.  I didn't notice this as I was shooting it, but two of the lights are out which bother me and it's pretty much all I can see now.  To shoot this I used a super clamp and ball head mounted to a hand rail to shoot straight up and get a sharp image.  I had packed the tripod in my checked luggage so that was my only option!

JANUARY 7:

This day was my first scramble day to make an image as our travel put us in very late the previous night and I had a lot of work to catch up on.  Then I spotted a flock of geese hanging out on a partially frozen lake near the house.  Shot this one late in the afternoon, I like the reflections and texture of the ice, though I'm not in love with the color.  Everything outside right now is brown, ugh.

Another bit of a scramble this day, but lucked out on a great sunset and a timely train.  This one second exposure gives you an idea of how fast the this training was moving.  Had to have been over 100 mph!



JANUARY 9:

First black and white entry for the project and also the first HDR image.  I downloaded the trial software of Photomatix (an HDR conversion program).  This shot was taken on a hike behind the Princeton Battlefield State Park.  I like the clouds and the corn stalks in the foreground.  The history of that area is quite impressive, you should check it out!
