Something about these toys appeals to me. The Kid got a few so I snapped some pictures, expecting a blurry mess. And that’s what I got, but in a good way! I love how the projected red light looks in the longer exposure photos.
I never get tired of the view here. I want to set up a static camera and do a timelapse over a year of wild variety of sights we get. Every day is something new.
The most special times to view the horizon are absolutely the sunset and, if I’m awake early enough, the sunrise.
A short while ago Google released an update to their Camera app which adds in their Night Sight feature. It is essentially a low-light camera. It takes several photos in quick succession and combines and enhances the batch to produce one image.
I’ve recently been playing with it and it is surprisingly good! Check out some of these nighttime pictures, taken during a long late night walk with nothing but a fairly bright moon sometimes hidden behind the clouds using a Pixel XL.
The only issue is the blurryness. Due to the nature of how the feature works it can only really be used on a still subject. Any movement within the frame or of the camera itself will make for a blurry image. Some of the images above probably suffer from this. Still, can’t complain! I like the feature a lot.
