Simple pleasures. Two photos of clouds catching the evening sunset light.
“Slight chance of convective weather” is rapidly becoming my new favourite weather alert, especially coming at the end of the day where it signals turbulent blends of low sun, rain and thick clouds. It doesn’t get much better than last night, either. With sunset happening just after dinner… perfect 🙂 And my favoured view of […]
A long time ago I wrote a python utility to interpolate frames for use in timelapse. This project was timelapse.py. Back in 2014 I ported the idea to the very-alpha-level language Julia.

For context, a general landscape of the lower end of the gorge with the Moness water flowing around rocks and pebbles in the riverbed: For consistency, everything else was shot coupled with the […]
