It's a long one today and you all can thank Ross for that! By long one I mean just over a minute compared to the usual 30 seconds. I almost missed this one today. The clouds were thick and gray and seemingly everywhere. I checked that trusty Loyola Crown Center web cam and woah. There was a strip of glorious light at the horizon. So I put on my two pairs of pants and grabbed the tripod. Getting to the beach I saw my sunrise buddy Trish and her trusty companion Scout. I scurried over to set up and just in time. The sun was big today. To think I almost missed this. Its all about the going. The commitment. The making of the space to do it. This time lapse contains 1128 images. I let it go long hoping it would pop back out the top of those clouds plus I was enjoying my time with Trish and Scout. The seagulls were doing loop de loos in the sky close to the shore so I got a video clip with my iPhone and posted to facebook. My buddy Ross and admirer of the sunrises mentioned how he enjoyed watching the birds fly around in it as opposed to the way they are just speedy flecs in the time lapses. So I decided I would leave this one at 15fps today so there was more of a presence of the birds. Thank you Ross for encouraging me to slow down today. After the time lapse I got in some pans. The colors were great even on the appropriate white balance settings...lol.
Thanks for your interest in sunrise and these images. Be kind, look each other in the eye and smile. Life is difficult no matter who you are. I love you all. Don't forget WHAT YOU FOCUS ON EXPANDS. Praying we can do this again tomorrow.
