This evening I was inspired to go shoot a time lapse of the sunset from the Zion Canyon overlook on Utah Highway 14. Things are warming up again here in Southern Utah and all the snow will be gone soon. So this was a rather ambitious undertaking as I decided to do this with HDR images. At 24 frames per second my 8 seconds of video is made of 192 images comprised of 3 shots each. Add to this the fact that the light changes rapidly at sunset and my exposures were coming every 37.5 seconds. So for ninety minutes I was watching the sun set. Adjusting my camera and freezing my butt off. I was in sheer bliss.
This shot is from an outing in Devon England at a place called Decoy Lake. I was so happy with the intense contrast I was able to capture in this image. It was just screaming to be black and white.
