mat pour at dawn
25-JUN-2010 DK Hein 2010

mat pour at dawn

I sacrificed sack time shooting a time lapse series of this large mat foundation pour the other night.
Work started at 2:00 a.m. local time and took the crew a full 6 hrs to complete. One photo was taken every 10 seconds.
The total shoot was a little over 1900 photos. When done I put it against a Charlie Musselwhite tune
titled: "Blues All Night". This is photo #1018 as dawn broke. The daybreak portion of the video is pretty cool. :)

Nikon D3
1/40s f/8.0 at 24.0mm iso3200 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Can we get tickets to the first showing, Dave?
This is a nice shot of the massive pour. The cement trucks must have been lined up all night for this!
