This morning, I couldn’t resist stopping to make a photo of this utility construction site.  The tent was glowing from inside, and decorated too!

Took this with the little Canon S95 one morning – awesome light.

It took a few tries to get the timing and exposure just right – Julie was very patient…

I and my banjo attended the proceedings at Lee Park yesterday.  I didn’t bring my grand-dog Mya.  She was probably disappointed not to represent the “99 paw-cent”! (thanks Jeremy!)

My Employer Rocks!

International Space Station

Posted in 5DMII, Long exposures, sky on November 6, 2011 by budbranch

There is an Android app that keeps track of when the ISS and other notable satellites will be visible in the night sky.  Saturday night the International Space Station’s orbit carried it 240 miles over central VA as the sun was setting – it took about 3 minutes to cross from horizon to horizon.  I made 15 or so 15 second exposures and composited 6 to make this image (the moon was an unexpected bonus).  There is a crew of 3 up there, and 3 more are headed there this month.  The ISS has been occupied continuously for more than TEN YEARS!  Cool.

A clear morning: 30 seconds, ISO 1600, f/4 17mm.  I used a flashlight to paint the trees.
