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.


Pacific Ocean Landscape by Dennis Bernhard

Day gives way to night

This was my favorite still from the time-lapse I posted yesterday. There's so much happening that I don't normally get to see. 

Beyond the deep intense orange giving way to the deep blue, in this photo you can see Catalina Island to the left, two oil rigs toward the middle and Long Beach to the right. 

I like how the lights of the city line the water, waiting patiently for the full darkness of night to come.
