A Colorful Sunset Animation
I like photographing green flashes at sunset. Tonight's sunset was particularly rich for a couple of reasons. The Sun set behind a particularly nice set of mountains resulting in a long series of green flashes with occasional hints of blue and purple. I set my camera to burst mode and took 65 frames. Since my camera takes about 5 frames per second, this corresponds to a little under 11 seconds of video. I animated them all so you can watch it roughly in real time. Sorry for the slight camera shake...the battery in my remote shutter release died so I had to push the shutter release by hand!
