Three Sunset Timelapses of Louisville Downtown

I found an app, The Photographer’s Ephemeris, and in playing with it I figured out that I could predict when the Sun would line up with certain landmarks.   So I decided to try it with Downtown Louisville.  I set a reminder to myself.

And promptly forgot to bring my Video Camera in that day.  It was Friday 3/29/2013, and the sunset was gorgeous.

No problem, I’ll just catch it the next day.

Saturday 3/30 – Overcast and hazy.  That’s #3 in the video.

Sunday 3/31 – Beautiful Sunset.  I skipped part of Louisville NCAA Madness to set this up.  User error – it didn’t record.

Monday 4/1 – Pretty good.  That’s #1 in the video.  Pulled back from my first attempt.   Every 5 seconds

Tuesday 4/2 – hazy, skipped.

Wednesday 4/3 – Not quite as good.  #2 in the video.  Pulled even further back.   Every 2 seconds, but I sped it up for the video.

Downtown Sunset Timelapse

The video is in 1080, so fullscreen is best.

By this point, the sun had slipped away from being lined up with downtown; and I had figured out that the stock zoom lens on my camcorder does not make for a great picture in low light conditions.    So ends that project; I’ll resume from a Tripod on the Pedestrian Bridge later in the summer… sun reflecting off the buildings.
