Sunrise, Sunset

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.

Sunrise from the back garden. I’ve had to zoom in a bit here to not get most of the trashy garden in the shot so it’s not the best quality
A sunset from the front garden. I may have done a bit more editing here than in the last image, but only to more closely represent what my eyes saw. Doesn’t do the view justice!

Magical.

Google Night Sight

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.

I want to say those spots are stars but I’m pretty sure it’s an artifact. Possibly from the building at the bottom of the image
Night time sheep!

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.
