Santa Monica California Time-lapse 4K by Dennis Bernhard

This was a fun time-lapse to shoot. I really love the way the roller coaster and ferris wheel turned out against the orange glow of the setting sun.

I’ve wanted to create this photo for a while and it came together perfectly. The lights and motion of the rides set against a background of dark clouds and a setting sun.

I still find it astonishing that there is a theme park on a pier, but it sure it pretty.

The View From Palisades Park by Dennis Bernhard

This week’s posts are from the first stop on my December trip. It all started with a day in LA.

I hadn’t spent much time in Santa Monica so I decided to spend the afternoon there. I started in Palisades Park which provided this amazing view of the hills meeting the ocean.

While the actual Taj Mahal is by far the biggest draw, the area and other buildings on the grounds of the Taj Mahal are very beautiful as well.

If you go early you are treated to an amazing sunrise. The pollution might not be great for the lungs, but it does help provide some beautiful openings and closings to the day.

As the sun continued to rise in the air it started to cast a beautiful orange hue on the white marble of the Taj Mahal.

The fog had started to burn off but was still lingering in the air.

This is one of the many famous shot from the Taj Mahal. The sun glowing on the white marble. The reflection in the pool. The fog adding a bit of mystery.

It was so beautiful I didn’t even mind the thousands of people standing right in the middle of my composition.

2018 Time-lapse Recap by Dennis Bernhard

2018 was a great year. I got to travel across the country and around the world. Here’s my best shots smooshed together into one day.

Thank you to everyone who watched my videos this year. This will be the last video for 2018. I’m off to Tokyo and India. Be on the look out for more videos in the new year.

Another of my favorite spots in Shanghai was Yu Garden. This is an ancient garden in the middle of Shanghai. It’s incredible how you can go from the hustle and bustle of one of the most populated cities on the planet, into one of the most serene and peaceful areas I’ve ever been to (minus all the tourists).
