Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

Time-Lapse Video of Dawn and Sunset Panorama at Sunset. Both were done with a Fuji X-T2 camera and 16 mm f/1.4 lens. I also did dawn through sunrise with a  Garmin VIRB-360 camera but didn’t like the color/white balance. And since the Garmin camera only records jpg images it is difficult to modify the colors in post processing.

Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

I thought there may be some colors at dawn and sunrise so set up the Garmin VIRB-360 camera about half an hour before sunrise. I also went out at sunrise with a Fuji X-T2 camera and 16 mm f/1.4 lens.

Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

While bringing in the cameras from the previous nights star trail shoot, I noticed some clouds and colors developing at sunrise. I managed to get a few shots with my Leica CL camera before the colors faded. The prediction is more rain tonight and tomorrow. The county already sent out local flooding warnings again. Notice most of the leaves have fallen off the trees. Now to decide, rake & mow the leaves, or leave them in place to become better fertilizer.

I noticed some yellow color out my window just before sunrise. I ran out with my Leica CL camera to catch some of the color before it faded. The prediction is more rain today and tonight. The county already sent out local flooding warnings until Saturday morning.

Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

I woke up at 05:30. It was cold out, right around freezing and the sky clear with no clouds. I set up the Garmin VIRB-360 camera to record dawn and sunrise as practice for a day that I may get some colorful clouds. I used the camera again as I picked the remaining hot peppers (still green). The plants are pretty much dead after several nights when the temperatures dipped below freezing. I haven’t decided if I will use the remaining peppers for a salsa or will just dry them. Later in the afternoon I watched the ever busy squirrels hiding their acorns. This year the deer are also competing for acorns.
