Now, to add the umbrella…

We have 12-hours or so of rain tomorrow–mostly during the day. If I am lucky, I will capture some day and night shots. I hope to see the dreariness and the reflections from the wetness. Anyway, the umbrella is to keep the rear opening of the van devoid of water.

My dry testing worked well. I captured rain during Hurricane Michael–no wet streets there though.

This was a pleasure to build. Finishing takes a long time though…

Four coats of polyurethane, two of Tung Oil, and waxed with paste wax.

The pad is in place and the tripod at rest for transport.

With a surface that wants to be used when I am not sitting on it…

This works well!

Storage for my other tripod.

This, a camera in a box [van], for taking pictures in the rain.

I took the scenery images at the onset of Tropical Storm Michael in the Fayetteville, North Carolina area. For us, there was less wind and rain the with Tropical Storm Florence last month.


Photography ~ Yet, A Taller Tripod Atop The Van, 10/07

Reaching for the sky…

With the CamRanger Camera Rig on top of this tripod, it is just over 7-feet above the top of the van and about 16-feet above the ground. I am using my other Manfrotto Tripod. It is the one I use for my iOptron Skyguide Pro. I will have a ground and “sky” tripod set up for my sun rise shots the week of November 11th.
