Sunrise reflection on Possession Sound

Driving through Everett this morning, and noticed the amazing colors on the water. Managed to catch a few frames before having to get going.

Lots of Hot Air

Originally uploaded by Malama na Honu
I've been meaning to try and shoot these balloons, launched near Woodinville, Washington.

Saw one in the air on the way to work this morning, and chased it for about an hour, managing to get a few shots.

Made the mistake of trying to use bracketing to maybe build an HDR, but since the balloon was moving, and since I don't really know how to use this camera yet, they were awful.

I love digital photography -- easy to try, review, and trash the bad stuff.

More balloon pictures.

Lunar Eclipse: Ambient Light

My oldest daughter woke me earlier than usual today to go out and try to capture the lunar eclipse. It was one of those rare times when:

1) An interesting celestial event is clearly visible from my region and

2) It wasn't overcast.

Still adjusting to the camera, so while I shot a lot, I didn't get much worth keeping. This was kind of fun though.

One other lesson: When shooting outside in the pre-dawn cool, you have to check your lens frequently for condensation.
