My little setup at Yosemite's Tamarack Flats campground last July.

Joshua Tree - the legendary "White Tank" Campground

I've always enjoyed camping. I was a Boy Scout as a kid and served in the Army. I've always loved to go camping. But ever since I got into timelapse it has given me a great excuse to spend even more quality time in the great outdoors! Last night I went through this whole fiasco of being questioned by security and being told I could not photograph a building in Long Beach because of "security" reasons and "911." I was totally baffled by the whole thing. Anyhow, it makes me appreciate shooting in the great outdoors all that much more. Out there, you can set up your camera in the middle of nowhere, pop open a cold brew, and let the camera do all the "hard work"... without worrying about parking, where to take a leak, or "terrorism".... :mrgreen:

Sun Tunnels

Hopefully I can make a better timelapse on Saturday morning. This is what I shot on the Winter Solstice.

Here's what it looks like looking down the tunnels on the Winter Solstice.

I want to figure out how you guys are doing the sweet star motion stuff. I might have to try something fun like that tomorrow night. My D2x doesn't do the greatest at the low-light photography. ;(

Doing a little test tonight. I don't seem to be able to get all of the little tiny 'milky-way' stars that you are. Keep on testing...

You got hassled shooting in Long Beach last night? Jeeez...... how ridiculous.

That's what I'm worried about.... most of the places i want to try and shoot timelapses involve airports and freeway overpasses

I'm with you on the camping thing. I'm also a former scout. unfortunately my fiance will only camp if there are showers nearly

That's the great thing about photography I think. The ability to get outdoors and breathe some fresh air. I'm on another board that is all about long distance expeditions and camping. Check it out at Expedition Portal.
