Grizzly Peak Blue Hour

Grizzly Peak blue hour

We have some friends who live near the top of Park Street. I have always wanted a shot of the view but have never had my camera with me (until last night). This was an hour or so after the blue hour, but with a 30-second exposure a bit of time travel was possible.

Santa Barbara Courthouse

Santa Barbara County Courthouse during Christmas blue hour

Last week I posted a photo from the clock tower of the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. Today’s photo is of the courthouse and the clock tower that prior picture came from.

The first night we pulled into Santa Barbara we were all rather stunned driving past this building which looked spectacular at night. During the day it still looked pretty cool, but at night is when it really dazzles. Every night I meant to walk down the street (we were staying near Santa Barbara High School) to get this shot, but it wasn’t until our final night–Christmas evening–that I actually made it happen.

The campus will be a ghost town in another week, but there are some holiday lights between the new dorms (Shasta and McLoughlin Residence Halls).

Milky Way

The Milky Way over Beatty, Oregon

I spent a couple nights over Labor Day Weekend at a friend’s ranch in Beatty, about two and a half hours east of Ashland. With no moon, clear skies, and no sizable population within 30+ miles the Milky Way was quite visible with the naked eye.

I am between tripods at the moment so I had to prop my camera up in some old manure to get this shot, a 15 second exposure (to avoid star trails) @ 24mm. Next time I will be sure to have a tripod and my 14-24mm lens so I can go for a 30 second exposure without star trails for hopefully better results.

Varsity Theatre – Ashland, Oregon

Today’s photo is from the archives. I took this in February of 2011 with my LX3. The Varsity sports some of the last neon left in town. I think there was about twice as much neon a decade ago as there is now in Ashland. At some point I imagine it will all be gone.
