First I must say, thanks Parker for setting this area up! I visit Mavican.nu (a site for Sony Mavica (and other) users) every now and then, but I always wanted a more HTF-related crowd to share my photos. So, I'm curious to see some really cool or beautiful shots taken. If you can, give some background on the photos, like what time of day, location/environment, camera used, etc. Also, so folks with slower connections don't go insane waiting for the page to load, it might be best to link to the pix instead of putting them inline. Here are a few of my better shots. I note the camera used in the description. 11 Oct 2003 (sunset), Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine The day was perfect, unbelievably perfect. Temperature was in the high 70's to low 80's, it was sunny all throughout ... a great Saturday for Columbus Day weekend. I had one of the best days of my life that day, touring the park by myself, taking pictures, and enjoying the beauty of Nature. I had followed the coastline, stopping at several stops to take pictures; I had even hiked and climbed a few hundred feet up one hill just to get some close-up pictures of a boulder "precariously" tilted on the edge of a cliff; I had lunch at one of the island's nicest restaurants; and I decided to finish my day at the peak of the island, 1500 feet up on Cadillac Mountain. The view up there is just tremendous -- the entire Mount Desert Island is laid out in all its beauty, you can see for miles and miles in every direction. I must've taken a couple hundred pictures on that mountaintop alone. Shortly before sunset I strolled over to the west face and sat there in solitude for 45 minutes, watching as the sun slowly sank into the west. Over the last half hour before the light faded, the cliffside did become crowded with photographers of all sorts, setting up tripods all over the place -- you'd think they were waiting for somebody famous. When the light finally faded, everybody clapped -- it was odd, because the people to the south, who had a hill blocking the flat horizon, clapped first, and the sound slowly made its way to where I sat, and then went further to my right. It was a very cool experience. This is one of the photos I took of that sunset. Taken with the Sony DSC-V1 at 5mp. 11 Oct 2003 (moonrise), Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine Well, after the incredible sunset I was about ready to call it a day, but then I realized that it was pretty close to a full moon that night, so I decided to see if I could get a shot of the full moon as it rose above the eastern horizon. As I waited, I saw the neatest thing -- the glow of the moonlight traced a line along the eastern waters. I tried to capture that with a longer exposure, but unfortunately that washed out the details of the moon -- conversely, I tried a shorter exposure, which captured the moon's features but wasn't long enough to capture the water glow. One of these days I'll have to get around to Photoshopping the two together. Taken with the Sony DSC-V1 at 5mp. 15 Aug 2003 (sunset), Orcas Island, Washington I'm still amazed at the rays of the sun in this one -- this is not touched up in any way. This was another one of those "perfect sunsets" you sometimes see in movies or pictures; I was just lucky enough to catch it. Taken with the Sony DSC-V1; I accidentally had this one set to 3 megapixels instead of 5. 6 Dec 2002 (nighttime), South Plainfield, New Jersey I saw this nice crescent moon one night, so I took a quick shot on time-delay. The reflection is caused from putting the camera on the hood of my car. Note all that snow -- it was a rough winter! This one was with my old Sony Mavica CD1000, 2.1mp. 24 Jul 2000, Crater Lake, Oregon Hmm ... was the White Tree of Gondor emulated from this tree? By the way, yes, the water of the lake really IS that blue. Taken with an older Sony Mavica FD-83 (floppy). 25 Jul 2000 (sunset), Heceta Head, Oregon One of the eeriest/coolest sunsets I took -- there is fog rolling in, as a layer in the midst of the clouds as well as ON the water; the sun peeks between the clouds and the water/fog. Also taken with the FD-83. 20 Oct 2001 (daytime), somewhere near Raymondskill Falls, Pennsylvania Sometimes you just find a field or a lane that's just ... perfectly picturesque. I have no idea who lives back there, but it sure is a very nice lane. Taken with the Sony Mavica CD1000. 11 Mar 2002 (nighttime), Towers of Light, in Jersey City, New Jersey Probably the best picture I managed to take of the Towers of Light that were on display in Manhattan shortly before the spring after 9/11. Taken with the Sony Mavica CD1000.
