I have been spending a lot of my free time gathering images from downtown Roanoke during my time here. I have not been able to edit as efficiently or quickly as I would like, but the important thing is the image gathering!(you can always edit later:)
This first image is from the same spot as the first images from the last blog post. Only this time I can during blue hour! I took multiple exposures as traffic cruised by to really add a sense of morning busyness:) I still have more images to edit from this area, and those will appear in the gallery when I get to them.
Over the course of a couple days, I made two different stops on top of the parking garage near Elmwood Park to take some images from the nice high vantage point.
In this first one, I was really up against the clock with some work stuff so this was as far into blue hour as I could shot that morning.(it is 3 exposures to show more traffic).
This next photo is a vertical panorama that allows me to include the cool clouds above the buildings.
Moments later the sun was up and casting nice warm light on the downtown buildings.
A day or two later, the moon was set to rise over the downtown area just before sunset. Unfortunately, there were some clouds on the horizon that prevented me from seeing the moon right away as it broke the horizon(I had to stand on a busy bridge for about 30 minutes longer than I wanted to:). This photo was taken as I made my way back to the car... Thanks for looking.
