Denver Skyline HDR

    Newer Older

    A rooftop shot viewing Denver from the south east. So I took this picture on top of the roof of an apartment complex, 12 stories up I believe. It was ridiculously windy; I am talking crazy wind. It was nearly impossible to get a three exposure shot even with my sturdy tripod without my gear shaking. I am not exactly a fan of heights too, so it was a bit unerving. So windy in fact, it blew over my camera with my brand new sigma 10-20 lens when my back was turned. Yes it took a hard fall right onto the concrete, but luckily that stuff is tough as nails, it would be ok. Another thing I was battling was my stupid battery. I swear a full charge on that thing lasts only 45 minutes. Luckily I had brought my charger with me, but I was running back and forth between charging the battery and putting in back in the camera to snap off a pictures of the dwindling sunset. Whew, that was quite the ramble, oh well, I think it was worth it.

      Beautiful! Well worth all the trouble. Next time you are battling winds like that, try hanging your camera bag/pack from somewhere on your tripod (I hang it down below on the center extension) to stabilize it a bit.

      That is an excellent idea CptAubrey! I will for sure do that next time I encounter those type of winds!
