The Weather Channel2,707,854*Upload your photos to this Event on 9/19 or using the #sunsetday hashtag in a public post to celebrate #sunsetday!* Join us for an exciting 24-hour event as we send summer into the sunset in global fashion. We are asking our Google+ audience from around the world to grab your favorite camera on the evening of September 19 and snap your own unique sunset from your corner of the globe. We want to see all types of sunsets in a variety of settings; a city skyline, a beach resort, a beautiful countryside, a desert landscape, a dense forest. *Wherever you may be, please share/upload your sunset image with this event page on September 19.* You can also participate outside of this event page by submitting a public photo post and tagging with #sunsetday. A select number of our favorite photos will be shown on The Weather Channel and accompany a slideshow on weather.com. Other favorites will be posted and rotated through as the cover photo on both +The Weather Channel and the +Google+ Photos  Google+ page. Note: *Only photos uploaded and posted to the event page or associated with the hashtag #sunsetday on Sep 19 will be considered* We hosted two Hangouts On Air in preparation for Sunset Day. The first hangout focused on the meteorology behind sunsets including the reason behind the beautiful array of colors.  The second hangout concentrated on the art of sunset photography. Expert photographers well known to the Google+ community talked about their techniques in capturing the perfect sunset. Links to both HOA videos are posted below. *HANGOUT SCHEDULE* 1.

Jeff Sullivan2,013,191+Lori Hibbett and I and I will try to be shooting on the rocks by around 6:30 to capture golden hour light. Sunset is at 7:18, so the best sky color will be from then until 7:40 or so. Then we'll have some "blue hour" twilight for another 20-30 minutes, the light painting can start by 8, and stars will be gradually strengthening from then through 8:30 for night shots. If we're getting some good light and reflections off the beach making light orbs and so on, we can shoot to 9 or whenever we get thirsty. No problem if you're late given work, school and weekday traffic, we should be able to stay entertained shooting in the changing light for at least 2-2.5 hours.  We'll go to a bar or restaurant for another hour or two after that. This free social event is open to all; you're welcome to bring your photographer friends (on Flickr, Meetup, 500px, from your local photography club, etc.) We're looking forward to seeing those of you we've met out shooting in recent years, and meeting those of you we haven't shot with yet! We'd like to explore the area known as Hospitals Reef or Draper Villas, the rocks adjacent to Coast Boulevard Park 0.7 miles south of La Jolla Cove (see map).  We'll also shoot El Matador State Beach in Malibu April 11 and Little Corona Beach April 14.Sunset Photowalk La Jolla Monday April 152013-04-15 18:30:0030

Moon, Mars and Venus Conjunction over Mount Whitney
I was evaluating places to capture the moon with Mars and Venus nearby last Friday, and +Lori Hibbett suggested, "How about Mount Whitney?"  Mount Whitney is the highest peak in America's contiguous 48 states, and is has a nice, pointy summit.  I checked with +The Photographer's Ephemeris, and sure enough, there were several positions we could shoot from and capture the  moon and planets setting.  

Shooting the actual event was just as straightforward as expected based on the predictions.  As the moon and planets set in the first location closest to the mountain, we moved back to the next location and captured them setting again.  The sky was getting a little dark by the third location, roughly 2 hours after sunset, so it was time to head in for dinner at that point.

Horsetail Fall, Yosemite National Park
A number of conditions have to be just right for Horsetail Fall to flow at all, but you also need clear skies to the west for it to also be backlit by the setting sun.  It can take photographers years of trying before they arrive in Yosemite National Park before all of the right conditions occur.

Fourth Lake Reflection
There's a basin with about a dozen lakes in it up Big Pine Creek.  About halfway through someone apparently got tired of naming them, so this is Fourth Lake.  The pines here aren't particularly big, but the creek was probably named for tall Ponderosa pines downstream.

Moon, Mars, Venus Setting Over Mount Whitney
Here's another photo of the Moon - Mars- Venus conjunction setting over Mt Whitney in "blue hour" twilight light a couple of weeks ago.  Astronomer +Philip Plait has a nice write-up on the event his Bad Astronomy blog on +Slate, which features the time-lapse video I created: 
http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2015/03/08/moon_mars_venus_sunset_appulse_video.html

The moon was actually in a thin crescent phase, but being positioned towards the sun, as seen from the moon the sun was illuminating a nearly "full earth", which provided a lot of "earth shine" to illuminate the portion of the moon's face not directly lit by the sun.  It's a pretty cool phenomenon to see, best seen a couple of days before or after the new moon, when the moon is close to the horizon in morning or eveningtwil... more »

iPhone Bokeh
Sometimes I pull out my cell phone to capture a shot, either to take advantage of the depth of field, to capture a simple panorama with no extra steps, to use a fish eye or macro lens in my pocket, or simply to record a place, thing or moment conveniently without having to get out a DSLR.  

My iPhone 5S has been close to full for months now, so I can either clear out many of the images and videos, or I can (delete them all and) trade up to an iPhone 6+.  I've been very impressed with the photos I've taken on +Lori Hibbett 's 6+, but I'm close enough now though to whatever might come out from Apple in the Fall, either a 6S or 7, that the other possibility is waiting for something even better.

An iPhone Visits a Ghost Town
It sounds like the setup for a joke, but the punch line is... as a camera it did pretty well!  The park hasn't touched most of the interiors in decades, and they don't want anyone even disturbing the dust.  So having a light "camera" that is easy to maneuver can be particularly handy for low angle perspectives and hard-to-reach places where a big camera would be awkward.

As in past years, most of our Bodie workshops in 2015 bundle six hours of sunrise & interior access with another six to seven hours of sunset and night shooting.  Our June 11 date is nearly full, but the others have room at the moment:

First Light on the Dry Lake
I arrived before dawn to catch the best light in this location.  There are dry lake beds all over Southern California, and most of them offer interesting textures like this.

I captured this image a few months before Google+ existed, so I haven't shared it individually on G+ yet, but I'm trying to catch up on sharing some nice images like this one, one of my favorites from 2011.

Horsetail Fall, Yosemite National Park
A number of conditions have to be just right for Horsetail Fall to flow at all, but you also need clear skies to the west for it to also be backlit by the setting sun.  It can take photographers years of trying before they arrive in Yosemite National Park before all of the right conditions occur.

Sunset Reflection at Valley View
I recently re-edited this Yosemite photo in +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.  Here's the original field edit from 2010: https://plus.google.com/photos/+JeffreySullivan/albums/5691946088756069985/5652961151903208018?pid=5652961151903208018&oid=107459220492917008623

Lightroom 5 consistently gives me better results when I revisit most of my photos 2 or more years old.  I have to reformat a lot of images for my upcoming guidebook anyway (www.PhotoTripUSA.com), so I'm ending up with better photos as i go.  I'm discovering some new ones that I had originally passed up as well, which turn out well when post-processed with current software.

California Wildflower Season Begins
After catching the moon, Mars and Venus setting behind Mount Whitney Friday night, +Lori Hibbett and I continued south to Antelope Valley to check on the progress of the wildflowers, which will be blooming over the next 9 weeks.  Many areas still have weeks to go before peak bloom, but some warm, well-lit locations like this are blooming a little early.  This faces southeast, so the rocks reflect sunlight and radiate heat onto the patch of wildflowers below, bringing spring a little early.
I can't wait to get back out to Death Valley and surrounding areas when much of the Mojave Desert is blooming!  Some folks are predicting the best bloom since the epic year of 2005, and in many places I've seen so far this year, I think that they're right.

Moon, Mars and Venus Conjunction over Mount Whitney
I was evaluating places to capture the moon with Mars and Venus nearby last Friday, and +Lori Hibbett suggested, "How about Mount Whitney?"  Mount Whitney is the highest peak in America's contiguous 48 states, and is has a nice, pointy summit.  I checked with +The Photographer's Ephemeris, and sure enough, there were several positions we could shoot from and capture the  moon and planets setting.  

Shooting the actual event was just as straightforward as expected based on the predictions.  As the moon and planets set in the first location closest to the mountain, we moved back to the next location and captured them setting again.  The sky was getting a little dark by the third location, roughly 2 hours after sunset, so it was time to head in for dinner at that point.

I'm having good luck re-processing some old Yosemite images from the 2002 - 2009 time frame, produced before some of the newer versions of +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.  I'll leave many of the older images up for comparison, so I'm putting many of the newer ones on my +Yosemite National Park Workshops page.

Bridalveil Fall in Late Summer
Bridalveil Creek is spring-fed, so it isn't as dependent on spring snowmelt as some of the other waterfalls in Yosemite Valley, but its flow can still get pretty meager in dry years.

This is a re-edit of a photo I took in August 2007.  I produced this new version in +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 and +HDRsoft Photomatix 5 (HDR) software.

Science Does Not Support GMO Safety
The industry-funded campaigns to block GMO labelling laws brilliantly labelled anyone who simply wanted to know what they are eating as "anti-science", but what does science actually have to say about GMOs?

The vast majority of GMO products are modified to either be resistant to pesticide (Round-Up Ready) or they contain an insecticide.  Here's the FDA's list: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/fdcc/?set=Biocon

Follow links from there, and here's the FDA's letter accepting corn able to survive increased soakings of glyphosate Round-up herbicide:
"Based on the information Monsanto has presented to FDA, we have no further questions concerning food and feed derived from MON 87427 corn at this time. However, as you are aware, it is Monsanto’s continuing responsibility to ensure that foods marketed byth... more »

http://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodScienceResearch/Biotechnology/Submissions/ucm304083.htm

So the FDA bases approval solely on the assurance of Monsanto?  

Let's look it up another way, through the data on glyphosate, the herbicide known by the brand Round-Up(TM):
http://www.epa.gov/ncea/iris/subst/0057.htm

_II.A. Evidence for Human Carcinogenicity
__II.A.1. Weight-of-Evidence Characterization
Classification — D; not classifiable as to human carcinogenicity

Basis — Inadequate evidence for oncogenicity in animals. Glyphosate was originally classified as C, possible human carcinogen, on the basis of increased incidence of renal tumors in mice. Following independent review of the slides the classification was changed to D on the basis of a lack of statistical significance and uncertainty as to a treatment-related effect.

__II.A.2. Human Carcinogenicity Data

None.

__II.A.3. Animal Carcinogenicity Data

Inadequate.  Charles River CD-1 mice (50/sex/dose level) were fed diets containing glyphosate at dose levels of 0, 1000, 5000, or 30,000 ppm for 24 months. The incidence of renal tubule adenomas observed in the male mice exceeded that of the controls (0/49 controls; 0/49 low-dose; 1/50 mid-dose; 3/50 high-dose). A re-evaluation of the renal tumor slides prepared from the male mice indicated the presence of an additional adenoma in the control group and malignant tumors in the two higher dose groups. Therefore, the incidences of the reevaluated data are 1/49 control adenoma; 0/49 low; 1/50 mid, carcinoma; 3/50 high, 1 adenoma, 2 carcinomas. It was the judgment of two reviewing pathologists that the renal tumors were not treatment-related. In addition, the inclusion of a tumor in the control group eliminated statistical significance for the high-dose group.

In a 26-month study Sprague-Dawley (CD) rats, 50/sex/dose were fed 0, 30, 100, or 300 ppm glyphosate in the diet. The study is being repeated to include the MTD. There were some thyroid tumors, which were considered of normal incidence. Power to detect an effect was reduced since a MTD was not demonstrated, and the highest dose tested was less than 1/100 of the high dose in the mice (Monsanto, 1981). OPP has requested that the study be repeated on the basis of the degree of species difference in the highest dose tested and the possibility that higher doses (MTD) might produce additional tumors.

---

So the carcinogenicity data is "inadequate", and the request that the 1981 study be repeated does not have any follow-up.  There are no human trials, except the one you see in the mirror.

Here's some recent science:
Pesticides In Tap Water Responsible For Food Allergy Increase
http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/253513.php

Let's see what a scientist who led the EPA's biosafety program has to say:

Scientists find multiple problems with GMOs
Agroeconomists have shown repeatedly that the best-yielding, most-affordable crop varieties, to "feed the world", are those derived from conventional non-GMO hybrids (U.N Commission on Trade and Development).

As a lifelong scientist, I am deeply troubled to report that promises of patent enforcement by American agrichemical seed companies have prevented U.S. scientists from researching what some exclaim are "problems" associated with GMO crops. We will not know the facts as long as the seeds and plants that we, our children, pets and livestock consume are not made available for conducting long-term, controlled experiments.

Norwegian scientists recently detected Roundup in 10 of 10 farms using genetically engineered soybeans. We had to also learn from these Norwegian (not American) scientists that the nutritional composition of soybeans grown on 31 Ohio farms differed depending upon the type of farm management system employed. Soybeans harvested from organic farms had higher concentrations of protein and essential amino acids, and higher concentrations of two minerals, and no Roundup residues (Food Chem. 2014).

Now we know from the scientific literature that the same concentrations of Roundup residues in soybeans is sufficient in laboratory assays to: induce hormone disruptions during frog development (mixed-sex frogs); kill young trout and tadpoles; stop the growth of earthworms in soil; inhibit activities of beneficial soil and human gut bacteria; and stimulate the growth of human breast-cancer cells assayed under laboratory conditions.

Ramon J. Seidler, Ph.D., of Ashland, is a professor of microbiology and a retired senior scientist and team leader for the Environmental Protection Agency's biosafety program.

A former scientist for Agriculture Canada, Thierry Vrain, has turned whistleblower as well:

Big winds in the Eastern Sierra today! I'm hoping for lenticular clouds tonight or tomorrow morning. The power is out at the moment, and things like lawn furniture are far downwind. I was getting pelted in the face with debris, so I put on ski goggles. I went and filmed from a dock, but it felt like it might catch the wind and launch me, so I came back in to scrape the debris out of my eyes. #weather #windy #easternsierra

Basically The Story function looks at all of your G+/Picasa photos (and Blogger and Panoramio if the accounts are linked), and it identifies trips or events, and puts them in the format you see when you follow a link like the one I shared.  The owner of the Story has the ability to select "Edit" to choose different photos from the trip.  

If you want to add photos, and they're not already visible when you select Edit, you can put them on G+/Picasa and ask for the Story to be regenerated, or you can tell a G+ Photos process to back up photos from your phone (I don't) or from your Windows desktop, and it will try to create stories as photos are added to those locations (each private until you share them I assume).

So I added folders to my Windows desktop specifically to have the photos found for potential Stories.  I think it had 40+ potential Stories for me, going all the way back to trips I took in 2004.  Then drop down the menu at the top of your Photos screen, and the first item on the list is Stories.  Select that, and you'll see the Stories you have to choose from. to edit, then share if you want.

I ran across this 2011 trip while wrapping up the Imperial Sand Dunes section for my guidebook yesterday.  So many of the photos are turning out a lot better re-edited with the newer "2012 process" now available in +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.  

I think that this Story feature could be really useful, but I couldn't get it to "see" some new edits or photos I uploaded for Imperial Sand Dunes, so I simply have to apologize in advance for some of the edits which are "so four years ago".

Story from NASA Orion EFT-1 Launch
The G+ Story created from my trip with +Lori Hibbett to see the NASA Orion EFT-1 launch last month. 

If you'd like to see a launch tomorrow, NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive mission (SMAP) launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, is scheduled for 6:20 a.m. PST (9:20 a.m. EST) Friday, Jan. 30, with a three-minute launch window. The launch of the United Launch Alliance/Delta II rocket was scrubbed Thursday due to a violation of upper-level wind constraints. Launch managers have initiated a 24-hour recycle. The weather forecast for this launch window shows a 90 percent chance of favorable conditions.  NASATV coverage will be available at this link:  http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?release=2015-043&utm_source=iContact&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=NASAJPL&utm_content=smap20150129

Massive Asteroid BL86 Approaches Earth
Here's a composite photo to go with the time-lapse video I posted this morning of mountain-sized Asteroid 2004 BL46 (357439) as it approached earth last night.  Fortunately this pass was a near-miss, coming no closer than 3X the distance to the moon.  That's still very close in terms of the vastness of space, and it'll be interesting to see how close it comes on its next lap 8000 years from now.

This still image was assembled from the first 60 images I captured, the video clips from 119 separate images of the sky.  Click on my name to see all of my posts to see my post this morning with the video.  I also posted photos and video of Comet Lovejoy in recent days.

The sequences of photos of the asteroid last night were taken with a full frame DSLR and 70-200 mm lens, on a star-tracking mount. The evening sky is becoming bright with the moonlight, so I lowered the they ISO sensitivity to 2000. I tried a second camera using an 85mm lens at f/2.2 without a tracking mount, but I probably won't get to that footage this week so see whether the asteroid shows up well.

Comet Lovejoy Last Night
Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy has reached its maximum brightness.  This is a photo of it last night, as seen under the dark skies of the Eastern Sierra.  Knowing where to look (near the star cluster Pleiades) I was able to just make it out with my eyes, then find it with a 70-200 mm lens.

It showed up well in photos captured on a full frame DSLR with 16 - 35 mm lens at 30 mm focal length with no star tracking mount, but for the 200 mm shots I used a tracking mount so the stars wouldn't "drag" in the photo from the rotation of the earth.

Comet Lovejoy, above and to the right of Orion
If you're familiar with the constellation Orion, shown in this picture, Comet Lovejoy (the blue-green fuzzy dot with faint white tail) can be found above and to the right of Orion over the next week or two.  Comet Lovejoy will move up in the sky a bit more each night.

This photo of Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy was captured two nights ago facing the eastern horizon at 7:21 pm, January 7, 2014.  It's a vertical crop from a landscape orientation shot captured at a wide 24 mm focal length.
