The Posts - Time Lapse

A couple of weeks ago, my son and I got up before the crack of dawn and made the 90 min trek out to Rozel Point to enjoy the sunrise.  Rozel is on the North end of the Great Salt Lake and is almost in the middle of nowhere.  Not only is Rozel a next-door neighbor of the Spiral Jetty, it's got the remains of some old oil-exploration drilling rigs.  This has become one of my favorite places to shoot, you've seen the posts in my previous work.  The way storms roll in off of the lake, you just never know what kind of shooting conditions you will end up with.  This particular morning, the conditions couldn't have been better.  The color of the lake can vary greatly throughout the year and this day it was a nice, deep, red. The storms clouds rolling off of the lake were fantastic, and really added to the mood.  Perfect opportunity to shoot some time lapse.  

I'm still refining my skills and techniques with Time lapse.  I've learned a lot, but I still have much to learn.  There are some technical issues with this, but overall, I'm pleased with the end results.  I'd love to hear your opinions, good, bad, or otherwise, in the comments below.

  1. I loved this setting.

    Interesting reflections and I particularly liked the perspective looking through the posts.

    Was the construction a board-walk in a former life?

    Lovely, do keep them coming.

  2. Thanks, Rhianne! These posts are one of my favorite places to shoot. They are the remains of an old oil exploration rig. If you have followed my work, you've seen them before in some of my light painting images.



I love hearing from you, good or bad!
