I need to replace the tripod I broke 2 years ago. I don’t know how I have gone this long without one…I am tiring of balancing my camera on my car, or my knee, or a gate post to get a successful night shot, and I am becoming more and more interested in night photography as this project continues. I think I will buy myself a tripod for my birthday!Bursting sunset over YorktownPuff Clouds PuffingTelephone Pole in the skyTwilight BaseballTaco Boy and the MoonSunset on SmithMidnight Moon

4 of my 7 daily sky photos this past week were taken from Brittlebank Park, a green space in downtown Charleston that overlooks the Ashley River. Check out the photos…maybe I should tweak the rules, again, and shoot solely at Brittlebank! The sky was mesmerizing.

I used my Coolpix for every photo this week. Good because it was so accessible and easy, but I don’t want to get completely comfortable with using a point and shoot for every photo during this 2nd attempt! By nature, the photos become less thoughtful. So, while it was a fun, easy week of sky shooting, next week I am going to make a true effort to only use my Coolpix when I really can’t pull out my dSLR. Enjoy! And check out the Three65 tab to see all my progress!

After a failed attempt last year, I am trying once more!┬áThis time I have tweaked my rules, again, and I am going to focus one subject I am constantly amazed by…the sky. I have been fascinated with it, and photographing it for years, but since moving to Charleston, I have been floored by the diversity the Low country sky offers. It is so vast against Charleston’s flat topography. Every sunset is different. Clouds change with the blink of an eye.

So here goes my 2nd attempt of Project three65. This time I will upload on Mondays. Wish.Me.Luck. Pardon my first 2 car photos…I was traveling at the beginning of the year!

The weight of the container ship easing around the bend of the island was almost overwhelming. I wanted to portray that heaviness with the tilt of my lens – as if the ship had to muscle through the calm waters.

Something magical happens when daylight savings time ends in Charleston. The sky can shift from baby blue to grapefruit pink to blood orange in a matter of seconds. I’ve never seen such a diverse and ever changing skyscape. On this evening, I was lucky enough to capture some of the beauty.

So the next time I complain about shorter days, I need to remember to look up. And give thanks.

I imagine this is what Pat Conroy describes in his many novels set in this beautiful Low Country landscape. I took these photos between 6:30 and 8:30 last Friday when Hurricane Irene spared our coastlines and salt water marshes of Charleston. And sunsets like these make me so so thankful.
