Home Renovation Project: Back Patio.

The remnants of Hurricane Michael blew through last night with about 0.45 inches (11 mm) of rain. The temperature dropped to the mid 60’s, and this morning the sky was clear with a bright sun. Today may be the first day this month that my solar panels generate more electricity that I use.  Alan and Lincoln installed the railings for the rear door landing to the patio. Still more to do, but the project is getting a lot closer to being complete. While they were working on the railings I mowed the lawn, and got some pictures of a Monarch Butterfly in my Zinnia patch.

Gone to See America 2013. Nikonian Annual Photography Adventure Trip. Day 3: Sedona to Williams, Arizona.

Prior to leaving Sedona, we spent the morning photographing the morning sun lighting up the red rock buttes. I set up a Nikon D4 camera and 16 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens to record a time-lapse video. I managed to walk in front of the camera a few times.

Gone to See America 2013. On the Road: Green River to Sedona.

Early DIY Car Cam time-lapse video. Driving from Green River to Sedona. Eight hours travel time compressed to two minutes 44 seconds. Images captured with a Nikon One V2 camera and 10 mm f/2.8 lens mounted on a tripod sitting in my passenger seat. The 3934 images were processed with Photoshop CC  and exported  into a 720p 24p time-lapse video. Fast-forward to today, and I am about to mount a Garmin VIRB camera on my dashboard so I can do 360 degree time-lapse videos on future road trips.

Backyard Autumn Yard Work in New Jersey.

There is a lot of yard work that needs to be completed before winter. I set up the Garmin VIRB-360 camera to record the day on the front of my Lawn Tractor.  I’ve ordered a powered mounting bracket to mount the camera in my car. A lot easier than when I mounted a camera on a tripod sitting in the passenger seat for recording time-lapse videos of cross country road trips.

Gone to See America 2013. Crystal Geyser near Green River, Utah.

While driving from Colorado to New Mexico, I made a stop in Green River, Utah. I wanted to spend a day visiting the Crystal Geyser. This is a unique cold geyser powered by underground carbon dioxide and not underground geothermal heat. I saw Crystal Geyser erupt twice before in 2009, and 2010 and hoped to see it erupt again. Unfortunately, the eruptions were on this day were very small. Just slight increases in the flow of water coming out of the ground. I spent most of the day at the site just waiting. I set up three cameras to record any action. One camera (Nikon N1V1) was in the car, and the other two closer to the eruption site (a steel tube sticking out of a hole in the ground. I also took images of the rust-stained Travertine that formed from water released from the geyser.
