Passing Clouds over Downtown Durham

A few more long-exposure photographs of passing clouds over the buildings around downtown Durham – these focus more on the architecture, patterns, and contrast between the natural (cloud streaming) and the human-made (buildings) than an earlier post that was more about light and time at sunset.

Duke Tower and Passing Clouds

Still trying to find a balance between work, pandemic, and getting out to take photographs in a new location after moving across the country. I recently started taking my camera and tripod in my backpack when I go out cycling, and I was near this tower around sunset yesterday when I decided to stop and take a ~2 minute exposure of the clouds passing over the structure- I love the contrast of the incredibly straight, human-made lines against the smoothed passing clouds in the sky.

Tree poking up through early morning fog outside Durham, NC. My Canon 5D Mark II finally bit the dust, so this is one of the first photographs I took with my new camera. Excited to get out there and use it more!

Window in Fog at Mt Mitchell

Nice and cool at the summit of Mt Mitchell (6,684 feet elevation), even in late July in North Carolina. The top of the mountain was draped in a beautiful fog/cloud, with a few brief windows that revealed views of the surrounding landscape. Full panorama next week.

Towering Thunderhead near Asheville, NC

Decided to escape the heat in the Raleigh/Durham area, so I spent the weekend hiking in the mountains near Asheville, NC. Gorgeous views of thunderstorms over the mountains out there. I ended up shooting this as a double-stacked panorama to capture the height of the building clouds.

Bulb Exposure of Mt Sopris and Clouds

While driving across the country in June, I stopped in Carbondale, Colorado to take my annual photograph of Mt Sopris. This time I decided to make the long shadows across the field an abstract, black foreground element. Exposure time was ~4-5 minutes with a 10-stop ND filter to get a little blur in the passing clouds.
