Nothing but Gray Sky – Week 6

Just got back from my doctor about my back problem. I was order total rest, not driving anywhere for the rest of the week. This means no visiting Contra Loma, Empire Mine Road, San Joaquin River Delta, etc. Today’s set is the view from my backyard, showing a gray sky at the same six focal lengths as yesterday’s set.

Nothing but Clouds – Week 5

Due to some back problem my movements were restricted to my backyard for today. Part of nature photography are clouds, and I was lucky that there were some clouds hanging over the foothills, just what I needed for today’s set.

Along Empire Mine Road – Week 5

Another break in the rain to go back to Empire Mine Road to take the the set of photos for week 5 with my super wide angle lens. However, like yesterday for the last four photos Mount Diablo is not visible because of the clouds hanging over the foothills. To help the comparison to earlier photos of the same scene, the photos are centered where the mountain is a bit visible.

Mount Diablo hiding in Clouds

Got a bit lucky today, the rain just stopped long enough to take these picture. However, this time the mountain is not visible because of the clouds hanging over the foothills. To help the comparison to earlier photos of the same scene, all four photos are centered where the mountain is a bit visible.

Morning Sunrise – Week 5

Another day to leave early for San Francisco. Decided to snap a few sunrise photos with the super wide-angle lens. This one is interesting since over the years I have taken sunrise photos from this location I mused mostly my 50mm or 75mm lenses. With the 15mm focal length I actually am able to catch almost 180 degree view.

Colorful Sunrise No 3

No time this morning to visit Contra Loma or Big Break Regional Park as I had to leave for San Francisco very early. Luckily a great colorful sunrise presented an alternative for some great photos. The the time difference between the first photo and the second is about 5 minutes and about 10 minutes between the first and last.

Cloudy Sunrise

My plan for this week, not only because of the rain and fog, but also for personal reason. I will not have the time to visit the different locations as I will be traveling to San Francisco every morning and returning late at night. Therefore today’s set is from the same location as yesterday, except of fog we have a heavy cloud cover.

Clouds around Mount Diablo

The goal for this week is besides using a different Prime Lens is to shoot th same sceneries to allow comparisons between the lenses. This set of photos are using the same scene as I did for Day 2 (2027-01-02). One can easily see the wider Field of View (FoV) the 35mm lens provides. However, after two days of using the 35mm (FF) lens I still don’t have the answer which of the two lenses is closer to the humans perceive perspective (central vision). Hopefully after this week I will have that answer,

Between Major Rain Storms

The first storm ended this morning with the second one about to start. Knowing that I would not get a colorful sunrise because of the heavy cloud cover nor would I be able to avoid the forecasted heavy rain, I decided to take advantage of the current lighting conditions showing the various cloud layers. Since I used a small aperture I had to increase the ISO setting and use the fence for stabilization.
