I arrived in Houston Sunday afternoon for my Lightroom seminar today and was greeted by some beautiful clouds that looked like it would shape up for a great sunset. Luckily, my hotel (the Hilton) has an observation deck on the 24th floor so it was really easy to get in to place to shoot.

Sadly the god beams and crazy looking clouds had faded by the time I got there, but I did manage to put my ND filter on and grab a few longer exposures during sunset. Even better, I met up with a couple of new friends, John and Arty (thanks for letting me borrow the lens!) from Promote Control, and got a sneak peak at some technology they’re working on. I have to say, if you’re in to outdoor photography and time-lapse, from what they showed me, the Promote Control looks like a great device. I’m anxious to try it out. Anyway… So it ended up being a fun evening all around and now I have cool shot to share with the class today. Have a good one!
