Red Sky Tonight, Sailor's Delight

The old saying goes "Red sky tonight, sailor 's delight." When we see a red sky at night, this means that the setting sun is sending its light through a high concentration of dust particles. This usually indicates high pressure and stable air coming in from the west. Basically good weather will follow. - from the Library of Congress, Everyday Mysteries website. Canon G15, 1/80 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 400.

Empty Beach

We headed out to Sandbridge Beach late this afternoon. With stormy weather moving in we found an almost empty beach. It was really relaxing with the wind, surf and rapidly changing sky. We stayed for about 30 minutes before lifeguards closed the beach because of the threat of lightning. iPhone 4 with the Olloclip fisheye lens.

Always love catching the sunrise even when the setting is just a parking lot. That bird like shape in the lower center is actually a reflection from a car windshield and hood. iPhone 4, 1/1000 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 80.

Winter Twilight

- Well it didn't feel like winter today but the sky was really cool at sunset tonight. This is looking south on Colonial Avenue at Onley Road in Norfolk, Virginia. It's great to be driving with the top down in January. iPhone 4, 1/50 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 100.

Waning Winter

- The past week of spring-like temperatures has caused the trees to begin budding out. I hope the that winter is truly behind us because if we have an extended cold spell now it will be hard on the trees and other plants that are starting to wakeup. Canon G11, 1/125 sec @ f/7.1, ISO 100.

The Green Green Glass

From 2010 Blog
- The Norfolk Southern Corporation has its corporate headquarters in Norfolk Virginia. The railway giant has a long history in the port city. After the creation of Norfolk Southern through the merger of the Norfolk & Western RR and the Southern RR, the company built a new office tower downtown. Some describe the tower as the building of "money colored glass" in reference to the green glass clad exterior and the company's very profitable earning history. In this photo the early morning sky reflects off the east facing side of the building. Canon 7D, 1/500 sec @ f/7.0, ISO 200.

Powerful Sunset

From 2010 Blog
This sunset was changing by the second. The bright oranges were gone completely with in minutes of taking this shot. One problem with taking sky photos in an urban setting are the power lines and poles, so I tried to make this silhouette of the power pole a part of the composition rather than miss the shot. Canon 7D, 1/1250 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 400, 50mm prime lens.

201 - Morning Reflection

From 365 Project
As I was leaving home this morning, this refection of the early morning sky caught my eye. With my travel mug of coffee planted on the roof of the car, I took out my trusty G10 and captured the scene for today's post. Canon G10, 1/125 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200, 54mm equivalent focal length.
