Very cool video. Thanks! You should also thank the executive director of the Governor's Office of Economic Development, Steve Hill. I believe he was the key person to understand how important the Gigafactory will be going forward, not just for EVs, but also for static energy storage applications. My past experience with EDAWN was they were clueless about the energy / EV space, pretty much dismissing it as irrelevant in my opinion.

Sunset this evening at Virginia Lake in Reno, NV (USA). I finally got the latest Darkroom (a free software analog to Adobe's Lightroom) installed which supports RAW images from a number of new cameras including my new Sony a6000.

Yup, thanks. This photo was simply my playing around with different functions in Darktable now that I have the latest version that can edit RAW from my new Sony a6000. I generally don't do much editing to any of my photos. I'm not a big fan of the HDR over-saturated contrastey stuff you see a lot of these days. But also, for some reason Google+, even without the 'enhance' function turned on really changed the look of this photo. It looks less' overdone' on Facebook or my monitor. :/

Sort of. Reno is ~3-4 hours east of Sacramento and San Francisco, California.

In reference to moving the camera with a slow shutter speed (Module 1, Topic 6) here's a 1950s era pickup truck shot during Reno, Nevada (USA) "Hot August Nights" event in 2013.

Guess I forgot to share this on Google+. So in case you missed it, it's a photo of progress on the Tesla Motors' EV battery Gigafactory that's under construction a few miles east of Reno, NV. I shot it last Tuesday (01/13/2015).

A nearly full moon over Reno, Nevada. This is a low-dynamic-range (LDR) "image fusion" of five shots. Processed on the command line with Enfuse and touched up in GIMP. A bit noisy, but not too bad. I'll keep trying!

Try straightening your "horizon" first, as everything is tilted to the right. You'll have a better idea of whether you like the arrangement

This is a shot of October's full moon rising behind "The Pyramid" at Pyramid Lake in Northern Nevada (USA). For those who have heard of, or been to, Burning Man, Pyramid Lake is on the way to the Black Rock Desert. The Pyramid and many of the other features found in the region are called tufa formations. Pyramid Lake is a land-locked lake with no out flow to the ocean. It's fed water, in large part, from Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada and via the Truckee River that runs through the towns of Reno and Sparks.

I love the cours, shapes and textures in this. It's a beautiful picture, well done.

Story
Tagline
Plug In America Show producer/host. Electric vehicle EV-angelist, vehicle-2-grid (V2G) geek, energy democratizer, and renewable energy feed-in tariff wonk.
Introduction

I produce/host the Plug In America Show: http://www.pluginamerica.org/ev-media/podcasts.

Bob’s interests varies widely–as well as wildly–and include nearly everything with the exception of sports (drag- and air-racing are OK though), screeching babies (they’re like fingernails on a blackboard), television (the plug in drug), mindless commercial pop culture [fill in the blank] (it kills brain cells faster than moonshine) and Brussels sprouts (they look tasty, but aren’t).

Mostly Bob is an amateur (sometimes professional) policy wonk and troublemaker (aka: community organizer) in the areas of renewable energy, electric drive transportation, civil liberties, GNU/Linux and economic justice.

In 2011, he got a bill introduced into the Nevada State Legislature to adopt a renewable energy feed-in tariff. Sadly, the bill (what was left of it after the lawmakers got through with it) was vetoed by the governor.

When Bob isn’t podcasting you can find him on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, at Feed-in Tariffs for Nevada (FIT4NV), the Electric Auto Association of Northern Nevada (EAANN), the Alliance for Renewable Energy (ARE), about.me, or tinkering in his machine shop, or creating real wealth (unlike the societal-leeches that infest Wall Street) by growing food in his garden.

Bob also likes to play with Schrödinger “Ding” the super-symmetric, super-positioned, quantum string theory kitty. (Well, Ding plays when he isn’t working on his Grand Unified Theory equations.)
