End of the Line

The Stratosphere has a couple of “rides” on top of the tower. In this one, people ride in a rollercoaster-type car that stops at the end of that rail–and then plunges towards the ground. Two pictures this time! (Tech notes: I really don’t like the noise level in these; that’s a problem that I’m finding with this camera. At ISO 800 and 1600, there really shouldn’t be this much noise. I might try some noise tests with a RAW later.)

Welcome to Cherryville

Saturday night, after the snow, we had a very impressive sunset; unfortunately, I didn’t get to a good vantage point to get any real “sharable” pictures. I did, however, hang around town and play with some long exposure photography. This is a combination of three long exposure shots: one 8 seconds, one 20 seconds, and one 30 seconds.

Reflections

I’ve always been fascinated by the shiny green glass thingy that hangs from the Dogwood tree in our back yard. I like way the glass warps the shapes and colors of the reflected image. I’m hoping to get into the mountains sometime soon; I’ll have some (hopefully) more interesting pictures to share then.
