Timelapses – Hidden Harvest Moon

Clolorful clouds blocked the sky in nearly all directions on the evening of the harvest moon. Check out timelapses and stills from it.

I give it at least a 10% chance there is a couple making out behind the lighthouse.
Twilight at Pierhead Lighthouse

I was at the other end of the park (without a camera) pouting about not seeing the moon when the clouds light up a bright reddish color. This was the very end of it.
Colorful Sky Over Pierhead Lighthouse

A party boat made these ripples. I thought for sure they were going to boat over and heckle me, so I put on my invisibility-cape.

Lakeshore State Park


Checking out Lakeshore State Park during a lovely cloudy June day.

I’m impressed this little boat is able to pirate the large pirate ship. Y’arggghhhh.
Pirate Ship!

The orange statue gets a lot of hate for “being in the way” of the art museum, but I still like it. (Milwaukee Art Museum is just behind me in this photo.)
MAM Bridge to Burst

I was going to steal these bench drumstricks, but whoever installed them must’ve known this.

Me walking back to the camera at the end of the timelapse (start of video). I wedged the lens cap under the front of the battery grip and the camera’s strap precariously under the back of it to “perfectly” work as my makeshift tripod.
Me! at Lakeshore State Park

You can actually turn these kinetic sculptures. There’s a wheel at the base.
