Picture Post, Sunday October 14, 2007

This past Thursday, after work, I went over to the Eau Gallie Causeway and took some sunset pictures.

This is a panorama I made of a sequence of shots that evening. I really like the way it turned out.

Although I was mentally zoned in on the interesting cloud formations and the sunset colors, I thankfully noticed that the sun was way larger looking than normal. This was all I could do, was to simply point my camera and take a few shots. This was the best one. The sun (and moon for that matter) moves through it's own circumference in two minutes, so it was either take the shot and not worry about the poles and cars in the way, or forget it. I couldn't get to the other side of the road for clearer shots within two minutes.

I got a couple of shots like this, with the color at it's height, but I also noticed that some cloud, somewhere out of view was blocking the sunlight in such a way as to create this nifty looking streak of shadow all the way across the sky.

This was a cute little house I saw the other day across from the library. I loved the green of the roof and shutters on this well-kept little place.

Just after taking the above photo I noticed a whole bunch of what looked to be white ibis flying over. It's not a great shot, but more interesting than crows or sparrows or something; in my opinion at least.

On John's Daily Digital Images on Wednesday, I posted a couple of photos of this guy outside our library, lookin' for food. He kept turning his head like this, to one side and then the other, I figured it allowed him a better look at the pickin's. And you can see from the photo above of the flock of them, just how blue the sky was that day, and that's why this puddle he's in looks so blue. It's just reflecting the amazing sky.

Have a great Sunday!

You've outdone yourself once again.

The panorama and clouds are perfect.

I don't know much about photo shop programs, but could you edit out some of the clutter in that sunset photo? It looks great the way it is, but maybe you could play with it some and see what you can do with it.

Great pictures. I'm imagining you wandering everywhere with your camera. "Who's that guy with the camera?" "Oh, that's JAM, make like a sunset and he'll take your picture."

A great set of pictures. I like them all but the shadow line across the sky is supurb as well as the shot of the huge sun. Good stuff.
