Entries in twilight (3)


Barr Mansion

At blue hour, I snuck away from shooting a wedding with a friend to get a shot of the Barr Mansion.  All the wedding guests were at the reception hall behind the mansion.  You can see the lights from it through the porch on the left.  I love wrap-around porches like these.  

I shot five exposures bracketed and masked parts of the images from various exposures to achieve this image.  For example, the windows are from the darkest exposure. The lawn and sky are from the brightest exposure since I shot this after sunset.  In escence, I manually pieced together a high dynamic range (HDR) exposure.  I had first tried using HDR software to create the image, but was not happy with the results, so I scapped it and began masking the image.  I'm glad I did.

Burnt Orange Twilight

In light of tonight's national championship game, here's a image that serves as proof-positive that God is a Longhorn. :-) The burnt orange glow on the horizon was just amazing that night.

I took this photograph from the stands on October 18, 2008. The then #1 ranked Texas Longhorns were about to score against #11 Missouri on a spectacular Fall evening in Austin, Texas. Oh yeah, the Texas Longhorns won that night, 56-31.

Best of luck to the Texas Longhorns in tonight's big game.



Leafless Aspen Leaf

This Aspen tree also caught my eye. I love how the silhouette of the tree mimics the shape of its leaf (hence the title). Also, the coloration near the top is the last rays of direct sunshine as the sun had just set.
