Sky Full of Lightning

The sky was full of lightning tonight.
Spring has sprung, Summer is on the way.

My Garden is Back

Actually, it never went anywhere.
But now it is once again providing
produce for almost every meal.
The broccoli has been "in" for a couple weeks.
The Tomato's started arriving last week.
Peppers are trickling in every other day.

Nothing adds to a meal better then just
picked produce. Its also nice to know
where your food comes from.

Fried Chicken and the SuperMoon

Now that's a combination, and my Saturday.
I cleaned the grill, fried some chicken,
and pulled out some cameras to shoot the moon.

I bought an open box Sony HDR-CX 150 a few months ago
but have not really tested it out.
It has a 25X zoom, and I'd have to say for a tiny camera
it packs a hell of a reach.

In comparison, here is a time lapse of the SuperMoon
shot with my Canon EOS 40d with a 70-200 2.8L.
Time lapse was shot at 1 frame every 5 seconds.
I used DPP Pro to crop each frame for the close-ups.
You can see there is a limit to how far you can go
with the hardware and software I had available.

Now if that has not filled your appetite for "SuperMoon"
my friend chadsorianophotoblog posted this
very cool Canon EOS Rebel T3i test on his blog and youtube channel.

Spin that GoPro Miami style

O.K. I know, I'm spinning my GoPro all the time. But hey its fun.
I am an admitted time lapse junkie and the GoPro is the easiest way to get my fix.
On a recent trip to Miami, I mounted my GoPro Hero to the car roof and cranked her up.

For you detail folks, no, that is not the same car but it is the same GoPro Hero
mounted on my egg timer time lapse thing-a-ma-jig.
The video was shot at two frames per second, the white thing blowing in the wind is a shoelace.
The mount stayed put at 70mph, but I tied it off with the shoelace just in case.

Plant City Strawberry Festival 2011

Last Friday I took the day off and headed out to Plant City, Florida for the 2011 Strawberry Festival.
The festival runs through this week with rides, sideshows and plenty of strawberries.

I put together a quick video, shot with my Canon 7D and Gopro Hero HD mounted
on my egg timer time lapse thing-a-ma-jig.

Here is the video.
