Cherry Blossum With City Sunset
Monday, April 25th, 2022 at 20:58:44
This was my second shot at this sunset. I repositioned so I could get the whole tree in the shot rather than just a branch. I didn't bring quite so wide of a lens.

This is 745 frames, Starting at 7:39pm and ending at 9:16pm. I think sunset was about 8:15. The interval was 8 seconds and I shot in aperture priority mode because I finally figured out how to set my camera to limit the longest exposure in A mode until it starts increasing the sensitivity. The photos started at f/8.0, 1/160th of a second at ISO 100 (exposure is set to under exposed by 2 stops) and it ends at f/8.0, 6 seconds, ISO 160 (still under exposed by 2 stops)
I have manually photoshopped out people walking in front of the camera and a few birds.

Sunset With Cherry Blossom
Monday, April 25th, 2022 at 20:58:44
I started at 7:03pm at f18 at 1/160th of a second (in shutter priority mode) and ended at 625 frames later at 8:47pm at f6.3 and 6 second exposures. The interval was every every 10 seconds. I haven't removed people from this sequence.

Coopers Hawk
Monday, February 21st, 2022 at 15:38:33
This was part of a longer video shot on a tripod. I think VR was on because there was a lot of sway in the images. I tried a few different techniques for image stabilization - the best I got for this was photoshop, full frame alignment.

Foggy Downtown Sunset
Monday, February 21st, 2022 at 10:42:46
This is 656 frames from 4:01pm until 5:50pm. Exposure at the start was f8 at 1/50th of a second, at end was f8, 4 seconds. The photos are take every 10 second. No stabilization as the camera was on a tripod on solid ground (just outside of the Granville Island Public Market).

This is one of the easiest timelapses ever - the exposure is almost linear (the camera made the correct and consistent guesses) and no stabilization required.

Fog downtown is pretty rare - it usually happens when we transition from wet weather to cold weather in winter.

Ferry To Victoria
Thursday, January 20th, 2022 at 22:49:50
I had a tripod, my camera bag and a whole ferry ride to wait so why not try a time lapse off the front of the ferry?

A lot of things went wrong or were hard. The sun was in the image for most of the sailing which makes the exposure a pain. The ferry is vibrating I never got a sharp image out of the sequence. Shutter speed was between 1/125 and 1/640th so I think it was the VR elements in the lens that were shaking.

The ferry is not a stable platform but the bright moving water was very attractive to the ffmpeg image stabilization. I was un-unable to stabilize past the opening sequence.

This is 962 images, all shot at f8 with an interval of 6 seconds. I started taking photos at 2:00:37pm and finished at 3:36:43pm. Sunset was probably 4:15.

Anna Preening Tripod
Thursday, January 20th, 2022 at 22:49:50
Like usual, this was harder than I expected. The Hummingbird was in a tree on my parents back deck. They have two hummingbird feeders and I suspect this guy "owns" one of them. I took this video with a 400mm lens and 2x teleconverter. This is almost the close focus limit - without the teleconverter, I wouldn't be able to get close enough to fill the frame with this small bird.

In the original, the branch the Anna is on is moving quite a bit. The background branches are also moving in their own directions. I had to write a script to stabilize on the bottom branch.

Moonrise Over Trial Islands Lighthouse
Monday, September 6th, 2021 at 22:10:50
There are a whole bunch of things wrong with how I took this. Exposure was every 2 seconds and this is 100 frames long (3 minutes, 20 seconds). Exposure was f 5.6, 1/320th of a second at ISO 400 which was about 3 stops too faint. The f5.6 was dictated by the long lens setup and the 1/320th of a second was to reduce motion blur.

The biggest problem was the tripod. It was quite windy out (you can see the flag flapping) so the camera was actually blowing quite a bit. All of these frames were aligned by hand from the silhouettes of the house and lighthouse. I have more frames of the moon rising into the night sky, but I can't align them because I have no fixed part of the frame. It was so dark that even fully ramped up, I can't see the light house building.

I was surprised how much the moon is distorted - it isn't round and the face is blurred by changes in air density. I can understand why people usually take pictures of churches in the mountains rather than lighthouses on the horizon.

Sunset On Fraser Lake
Saturday, September 4th, 2021 at 15:55:44
There is a train on the far side of the lake near the end.

This is 366 shots, 15 seconds apart. It started at f18 and 1/100th of a second and dropped down to f5 and 2.5 second exposures.

Being this far north, the sun doesn't really set so you don't get much of a sunset.

Milky Way Over Pyramid Mountain
Monday, August 2nd, 2021 at 20:33:24
I put the camera out on the dock and left it shooting and went back to bed. The sequence started at 12:08 am and finished at 1:22am for 73 photos. The images are taken every 62 seconds. The exposure is 30 seconds at f2.8 and ISO 800. The camera was set in manual mode so the exposure didn't change.

The mountain is called pyramid mountain.
