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.

Shanghai Time-lapse by Dennis Bernhard

Shanghai is an amazing city. It’s full of lights, sounds and movement. I thought it would be perfect as a time-lapse subject.

This time-lapse was shot over two days during my trip to Shanghai. Unfortunately my third day of shooting was rained out. Nevertheless I had a great time running around this incredible city trying to capture a fraction of all there is to see.

The Oriental Pearl is a beautiful building all of the time but especially at night. The lights add a spaceship like feel like to the needle like building.

There is a very cool Shanghai history museum in the bottom of this building as well.

The Bund, Shanghai, China by Dennis Bernhard

I recently went to Shanghai, China for a quick trip. This next set of photos is from that trip, leading up to a time-lapse on Friday.

This is my favorite photo from the trip. Even though it was foggy and you can’t see the other buildings (one being the second tallest building on earth), you still get a great view of the Oriental Pearl tower.

I took this photo from the Bund, which is a very cool part of Shanghai that has a bunch of old colonial style buildings and incredibly fancy shopping. Of the many cool areas of Shanghai I visited, this was my favorite. The view of these buildings, especially lit up at night, is crazy beautiful.

Went to Canada to look at America by Dennis Bernhard

I went to Detroit for a work trip recently. While I was there I ran over to Canada in hopes of catching a sunset over Downtown Detroit. The sun didn’t quite cooperate but I was able to catch these two shots over the Ambassador Bridge.

MY PANTS FROZE!!!!! by Dennis Bernhard

We had a couple week long cold snap in Nashville which led to the waterfalls in the area freezing over. Cummins Falls is my favorite waterfall so when I heard it was frozen I had to go check it out. 

The hike in wasn't too bad, besides my pants freezing. All of the ice gave the fall and the surrounding area a winter wonderland feel.

Frozen Waterfall Timelapse by Dennis Bernhard

Frozen Cummins Falls is like a winter wonderland. Large icicles reaching down from the top of the falls cover the many ledges and levels. The ever present water continues to flow over the pure white ice which pops off of the brown rock surrounding it. 

Have you ever been to a frozen waterfall?

Lone Star by Dennis Bernhard

Lone Star

Right before I packed up and left this spot, this lone star (maybe it's a planet or something else, I don't really know) in the sky caught my eye. I was intrigued by the bright light in the sky over the fading sunset and thought it would make an interesting vertical shot.
