Grand Canyon time lapse

Grand Canyon, Arizona

 

Dec. 31 2007, 4:01PM - 6:40PM, one picture every 15sec.

I manually tried to get rid of a lot of the flicker which is present in some earlier ones. It was a lot of work, but I think it was worth it. Let me know what you think.

 

The last sunlight over Grand Canyon in 2007.

 

It was a pretty cold day, but after the sun set, it became really freezing. Luckily it wasn't as windy as the night before. I was wearing 2 sweaters, a fleece jacket, a vest, a windproof jacket plus hat and gloves. Also my wife Jessica brought me those hand warming packets from the car. Thanks again sooooo much. :-)

 

I was able to set the tripod up a little hidden behind trees. It was pretty well protected against the wind which allowed me to have it higher off the ground on my shaky tripod.

 

Stay tuned for more time lapses; coming soon: Sunset over San Francisco seen from Berkley, Sunrise in Death Valley.
