"Seven Cairns"While my camera was busy shooting a timelapse of the falls, I spent my time balancing rocks. Once I was finished, a couple showed up and asked me about them. They were surprised I had built them all, and they asked me to take a photo of them sitting next to the cairns. If you cross your eyes so the two images overlap and line up it should look 3D.

"Alternate Reality"I wasn’t that happy with my shots of MacIntosh Brook Falls, but after I tried digitally mirroring it I was pleasantly surprised. I like symmetry, which is why I love digital mirroring. I’ve got a large collection of digitally mirrored photos. (flickr.com/photos/matt_molloy/sets/72157623892837105/) It’s also fun to look around and find all the faces, which often pop up in digitally mirrored photos, but more so because of pareidolia.

"Midnight Mountain Snack"
I’m pretty sure the bridge on the right is the Canso Causeway where Cape Brenton connects to the rest of Nova Scotia. The title is referring  to the quarry where big machines have been eating away the mountain side. This is a two shot pano that photoshop refused to stitch (probably because there wasn’t enough overlap) so I did it “by hand” it’s not perfect, but it works.

While I was driving through a mountainous part of the Cabot Trail, frantically looking for a good spot to set up a timelapse of the sunset, I noticed a bunch of cars pulled over on the side of the road. I was happy to find that they were watching a moose with her calf eating grass. The calf was switching back and forth between eating grass and drinking milk. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something in the  distance and noticed it was the silhouette of a wolf crossing the road, probably following the moose and hoping for a nice meal itself. I don’t think the wolf would stand a chance against a mad momma moose. If it were a wolf pack, then that would be a different story.

"Into the Ocean"As I was making my way around the Cabot Trail, I drove over a bridge that crosses this river that splits Black Brook Beach in two. I decided it would be the perfect place to build my 7th cairn of the day.While I was shooting a timelapse here, I wondered why I haven’t seen more rivers and streams that run into the ocean. (I could probably count them all on one hand)

"Forbidden Rocks"This is a single frame from a timelapse I shot while building the cairns seen in the previous photo. I set my camera up behind the sign telling people to stay off the rocks. I was pretty annoyed when I read the sign, because this would have been a great place to build some cairns, but I wasn’t allowed to be near them.

I built these three cairns while my camera was shooting a timelapse on the beach, just behind this pile of rocks. I wanted to build them on some rocks in the water near shore, but there was a sign in front of them that clearly stated to keep off the rocks. There were some people that sat on them for photos, and it wasn’t long before the life guard yelled at them with a mega phone. I don’t get why you can’t go on the rocks in the water, but climbing around this much bigger pile of rocks is fine. I think anyone should be able to go anywhere on this planet at their own risk.

"Sunrise Time Slice"For this one I got a little crazy. I decided to try the “time slice” technique with much smaller slices than I did previously. Here’s the other two I did from this timelapse with different slices flickr.com/photos/matt_molloy/15180479916/  and  flickr.com/photos/matt_molloy/15203583635/I used 2 pixel wide slices. Since I preferred the horizontal slices, that’s what I went with this time, and since I needed to make 1730 slices, and I only had 670 photos from the timelapse, I had to reverse the order twice. I started from the top, and since it’s  a sunrise timelapse, it goes from dark to light, reverses to light to dark, and then back to dark to light again. Does that make sense?I’m really hoping I can figure out a way to automate this process, because I’d like to experiment with it some more, but it’s insanely tedious and time consuming.

This was my last day in Newfoundland, and I was lucky to wake up to an awesome sunrise. I really wanted to go back to sleep, because I had a few hours before I had to leave to catch the ferry, but the main reason I went on this trip was for photography, so I bit the bullet and did the timelapse. It was worth it!This is 268 photos merged into one image using the lighten layer-blending mode in photoshop, automated with this script advancedstacker.com I also stacked them in reverse order by renaming the photos with Adobe Bridge (as Steven describes on his website starcircleacademy.com)
