Sky Fire

Fire, a photo by slitherjef on Flickr.

The photo here is the result of some experimenting and a couple new techniques.

I had stepped out my front door this evening and seen a pretty sunset starting. Too bad my foreground was mostly blocked and littered by houses cars and other stuff you would find in a suburban neighborhood. Not really photogenic.

At first I thought about letting the great looking sky go with out getting any shots but decided to grab my nearest camera, a Canon G12 and took some shots. While the shots I got in the camera looked pretty good, once they where loaded up on my PC I thought I was just going to keep them to my self, but after a little bit of experimenting I came up with this photo.

Just an FYI, this is NOT a reflection shot… This photo was done by mirroring the image vertically and doing some cropping.

Earth Day Sunset

Not quite sure what to think of this photo. On one hand, I really like the colors, though I my have pushed things a bit hard, as you can tell by the glow around the trees, speaking of which, don’t look quite as sharp as I had wanted, but could be due to wind. But the major factor I don’t like here are the three stay objects… two light posts and a sign.

But, the fact I did get out and get something photographed is good, even if it was another shot I took while on break at work.

Not much of a sunset tonight, but at least I gave it a try

Rays, Rainbows and Rain

Well, we finally got some half way interesting weather rolling through Denver today, a brief thunderstorm in the afternoon and one that missed me earlier in the day. The first cell that passed over us today had some neat structure on its base but I failed to get to it in time. I did get some shots of the anvil after it passed over and headed out of town. The later cell proved a bit more interesting for me, producing a rainbow that did not last too long.

Since the storm passed by near sunset, some interesting colors started to show, at one point, the thought of, “this looks like root-beer” crossed my mind.

Of course, the sun did go behind the cloud that did not do the Rainbow any good, something more spectacular showed up in the west: Crepuscular rays.

Not too shabby, I think since I was stuck at work while this was going on. The key is, to time your breaks just right. The thunderstorm produced some very nice lighting which was helped by the sun which was getting ready to set.

Sunset Over the Rockies

Hey all. April 15h turned out to be a bit of a surprise as skies where mostly clear the whole day. However, near sunset some clouds did roll in to produce a very colorful sunset. I was at work at the time but was able to step out for a break to snap a few shots off with the g12 before the sunset started to fade.
