The partial solar eclipse seen in New York (and North America?) in November 2013 started right after the sunrise and it could be seen without a filter or glasses, and that's why I was able to get more than just a white shape of the sun with a completely black background.

2013年11月にニューヨークで見えた部分日食は日の出の直後に始まったのでフィルターなどは必要なかったため、真っ黒な背景にうかんだ真っ白な欠けた太陽以上のものが獲れました。

Partial solar eclipse seen in New York on November 3, 2013. It was really exciting to see it with my own eyes (through a camera).

The Snowflake
Since I have many new followers now compared to when I originally published this image, it warrants repeating: 2500 hours across 5 years went into this. All of these snowflakes are measured and placed to scale!

After December 25th, my Snowflake-a-Day series switches to every-other-day releases so I have time to catch up and explore new subjects and projects through the winter months… but I’ll often post something on the off days as well, such as this image, also available as a poster print: http://skycrystals.ca/product/poster/

This image contains over 400 snowflakes. At the time it was produced, this was every single complete snowflake photograph I had taken, from the tiniest plates and columns to the most giant specimens imaginable. People don’t often realize the size difference between the snowflake images I post, some as small as 0.3mm and others peaking at 11mm in diameter… this print tells the true relationship in size.

I had the idea to put this together when I discovered that the Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens records it’s magnification factor in a special area of metadata called “maker notes”, where proprietary information is stored if there is no standard exif field for it. It records down to a single decimal point, helpful in establishing the size of a subject. If I know the number of pixels across the sensor horizontally (A), the physical size of the sensor horizontally (B), and the magnification factor (C), then I do a quick bit of algebra:
A / (B / C) = number of pixels/mm
And then I can measure each snowflake after the images have already been taken. There are a few caveats here, as I often use extension tubes or additional optics to get even closer… and there are clues to those usages. If the image has a vignette, extension tubes are in use which means I add 1 to the magnification factor. If the images was shot at F/2.8, I use this as my own identifier that I have included the Canon Lifesize Converter EF into the mix which doubles the magnification.

Measuring 400 snowflakes is probably the most boring thing I have ever done in my professional career. Normally editing an image is muscle memory and I can binge watch Netflix in the background (currently watching Designated Survivor, dialogue-driven shows are best!), but with algebra at play it needed more of my attention.

The full resolution file is roughly 1.2 gigapixels. I have printed it as big as 44” x 66”, but a larger 140” tall version will be installed in an upcoming gallery exhibition at the Simcoe County Museum at the end of January. That massive print will be 300dpi so you can nose up to it and see all the detail – very much looking forward to it being on display!

Today’s Day 1 after the winter solstice, so , Happy New Year! I tried to shoot the first sunrise of the year over Mt Fuji at Lake Motosu, Yamanashi, but clouds completely covered the mountain this morning. The picture is from a shoot two days ago, the day before the solstice, so it would’ve been just like this framing-wise.

昨日は冬至でした。明けましておめでとうございます。今日は初日の出をタイムラプス撮影したくて先日下見をした本栖湖畔の中之蔵峠、所謂千円札展望台にだめもとで行ってみましたが、富士山はちらっとしか姿を見せてくれませんでした。写真は冬至の前日21日の朝日、太陽の位置は今日と同じはず...

Tried to shoot the Geminid meteor shower over Mt. Fuji at Lake Yamanaka, Yamanashi, Nihon, on December 14, in a timelapse movie. Didn't get as much as I thought in the frame, but saw a lot with our eyes.

Shot with Sony a7R II/16-35mm f4

12月14日未明の山中湖で双子座流星群を狙いました。画角にはあまり入っていませんでしたが、肉眼では1時間で40個じゃきかないくらいたくさん見えました。
