Clouds on the Move – Animated GIF


Clouds on the move – St. Augustine 2012

Only last week I tried the “Interval Shooting” feature on the Pentax K-7. I mounted the camera on a tripod, left the focus on manual, and set the interval time for 1 minute. I set the amount of images to 11 and used  Adobe Image Ready 7.0 to produce the GIF using 9 of the shots captured.  Image Ready was also used to reduced the size of the final GIF.
