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.

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.

Fire ball through the clouds by Dennis Bernhard

Ball of fire through the clouds

Ball of fire through the clouds

This is my favorite moment of every sunrise and sunset. The moments when the sun peers over the horizon and announces itself as a giant ball of fire.

This one was made unique by the low clouds partially obscuring it from view.

Blue sky and pink clouds by Dennis Bernhard

Blue sky. Pink Clouds.

Blue sky. Pink Clouds.

There’s a lot going on in this picture. The sky is tall and blue. While the lower clouds are bathed in beautiful pink light. The fog is still dancing around in the distance. And in the lower right corner you can see daylight beginning to reveal the Harpeth River.

Narrows Of The Harpeth Sunrise by Dennis Bernhard

The first light of dawn.

The first light of dawn.

This week’s series is from late October at Narrows Of The Harpeth. I’ve been to this spot a couple times but never for a sunrise. It’s one of my favorite views and the best part is it’s only a 20 minute drive outside of Nashville.

This was a cold, foggy morning. It was pitch black when I arrived. The orange light slowly crept over the horizon. I love the way the orange light silhouetted the hills in the distance.
