Happy Fourth of July from Pensacola Beach! I am finally in after spending all day and night on the beach. It was a perfect day: the water was crystal clear, the jellyfish were nowhere in sight, and the entire island smelled like hot dogs and suntan lotion. I ran inside to get my camera and snapped a few shots of the fireworks on my end of the beach. Enjoy!
When I came home tonight, there was nearly a full moon out, perfect to get a night shot of the beach!
I’m still a beginner when it comes to manual modes on my camera, but I can usually figure out what I want after some fumbling around. For shots like these, a tripod is necessary. The shutter was open for 15 seconds, which is why you can’t really see the huge waves that are still crashing in from Hurricane Ike. Everything seems to level out, to what appears as a peaceful beach scene. You can also see some blur in the clouds, since they were moving so fast.
Speaking of night shots, I got this cool shot during last week’s Bands On the Beach:
This one was also taken under moonlight, with some help of the stage lighting from the band. The purple wavy lines you see are trails from children running around with glow sticks. If you look close, you can see where one kid threw the glow stick into the air!3 comments
