July Fourth

I have been taking more incidental photographs lately. The days pass.

After the very unusual cold storm passed , it has been very bright and hot. Lousy light for photos.

Stay away from the light!

Shots after dark are pretty tough with the P6000. It was breezy. ISO800 is really too noisy.

For the holiday, I cooled off by going to Sand Harbor on the eastern shore and Nevada side of Lake Tahoe. I’m grateful for random emails from old friends! It had been a while since I was last there, maybe once in 2009. There is a venue where I saw the incredible Michael Hedges the year before he died.

After sunset, but before the fireworks began, I tried a new idea: long exposure infrared. The moon was only a sliver.

I was too far away with the P6000 for respectable fireworks photographs. I have shot them before. 2010: Gold Beach, OR, and 2008: Owensboro/Henderson, KY. As everyone loads the boats up at the end of the day in Sand Harbor, it is hectic. These are lights from the police and boat trailers getting out of there.
