Trip to Tucson


I went to Tucson this last weekend and spent some time in art museums and galleries.  The photo above was in one of the gallery showings of a variety of art by Tucson based artists.  I thought this one was amazing.  It's by photographer William Lesch and it's a time lapse view of a thunderstorm over Tucson.  (It was taken from A Mountain for those familiar with the area.)  Here's what the artist said about it:

"The summer sky transforms itself from the featureless white-hot blue of June to the twisting, dark energy of July Thunderstorms."

It has quite an impact!

Wow, that IS amazing. I don't know how he did a time-lapse and yet got the clouds so clear, because surely they were moving. Maybe he layered still images of the clouds somehow?

What an amazing capture

Lesch is both a gifted artist and writer. What fun, isn't it, to visit museums? MIA has a book club with a different novel each month. I just finished Rebecca and am curious to see what art the museum selects to go with the story. I'lll find out tomorrow when I take the tour.

Wow! I wonder how he did that. (not that I would be able to do it even if I knew how)

That is amazing, Sharon!

I don't know how he did that, but I'd guess it's a time-lapse as well as a combination. Very powerful, whatever! I wouldn't hang it in my bedroom, though. Maybe a guest room? :)

BTW, I'm glad that I was able to energize some fond, old memories for you!

On my heavens what a spectacular image Sharon.. This is one that we would all love to have under our belts :) I haven't attempted time lapse as yet, have you?
