Time To Move On !

[Video]…

I named this video because there was some things on my mind at the time of production, and I was thinking of them while out filming this the other evening. I dedicate this video to those thoughts because it was only suiting because I got my answers while filming this video. Sometimes we have to just let things and people go because it needs to be done otherwise you just keep falling with them. I have fallen enough in my time and I now like to be positive as much as I can because life is short. Some people you just cannot please no matter what you do or say. They just use you when they need you and than through you away like an old paper cup. I am tired of this so I just move on. This video has a surprise in it as well because I thought this was a perfect thing to do because I real

Autumn Moments

Not to much this fall but here is my best of fall so far this season. Always find something to put together. Cold but not to much color this fall and the leaves turned so fast not to many had much color to them. Also got very lucky in this video as well with an asteroid passing just about the moon on a scene with the moon and Venus dropping down on the horizon so be watching for it, if you do not watch closely you will miss it. Passes right above the moon and than burns up, it was awesome. Enjoy and see you soon.

Hybrid Solar Eclipse

Hybrid Solar Eclipse was very interesting this morning as I have never filmed an eclipse and was not sure how my cameras would do but over all I think this turned out right well.Right down over the horizon this morning and got lucky, Was very bright and hard to focus even with glasses on but did my best and still learning and did learn a thing or two this morning dealing with filming the sun so next time will be much better. it was clear skies all the way. Love this one and hope you do also. I have a black dot that shows you the moon’s position as you go through this video but it is self showing as well but did this so some could follow the moon as well as the sun. Thanks for watching and see you on the next.

Sunshine

Had to redo this video as I am updating my credits and there are a few surprises in this video for my fans and all who watch so be looking for them. So many clouds and not much rain to speak of had to make this to give a little sunshine for everyone today. New updates in this video as well and pay close attention to this one some things changing here at home office.

Full Moon Majestic

Cold front moved in while filming this and the clouds were fantastic. No time lapse here until the very end, clouds are at normal speed and the temperature dropped 10 degrees while out filming this as well. The moon was so clear it was amazing. I really love this video.

In Earth's Shadow

Two fantastic evenings and one great video. Two full nights of recording to catch the eclipse. It was two amazing nights and evenings as well. Verity of shots in this. Started just before sunset.

Sleeping Storm

My boss told me to put the camera in my window when I went to bed Saturday and this is what happened. I work at night so I sleep the better part of the day but going to do this more often now and see what happens. This is through a window so it may be just a little out of focus but the lightning came in great. Thanks for watching and see you on the next.

A couple of weeks ago, me and my neighbor, Phil, were outside shooting the breeze when this happened. Totally unexpected and not forecast. Was quit a surprise. Rained 2 inches in a matter of minutes. Thanks as always for viewing.

This was very interesting as me and my neighbor was out watching some fireworks before a ball game on the 5th of July and a storm was coming up on the right and left of the fireworks. Fantastic shot in this video.

Violent Thunderstorm

This was a violent little storm that woke me up this morning around 4:30 am and it was almost over but man was this thing loud and the lightning was something else to behold as well.

End Of The World Moon

This is a neat and rare video here as I was filming a storm coming from the west and I also had a camera to the east zoomed in on the moon and it made for a very interesting video as I combined the two as the storm was passing by.To my west was storming like crazy and to the east was clear as a bell as you can see. This was an eerie looking moon that night so I decided to name it for what hit me as I watched it and than right at the end of the footage I was shocked at what I had said in the footage itself. When I heard what I said I knew I had chosen the correct name for this video. Most interesting and thanks for watching and see you on the next.

Moon Setting

This is a cool video of the moon setting this morning. In this video you can see the heat rising off the roof of the house that the moon is setting behind distorting the moon as it sets. The birds are also very loud this morning as well. You can hear a dog howling at the moon as well and this was most interesting also because I thought this was kind of neat as the moon was setting. I love shooting the moon lol, beautiful big old ball.

An Evening With Don

Mowed the grass and filmed some video this evening while working on a major production that I, and a friend of mine are doing and this is something I have never done before, I got tired and a little flustered so I took a break and grabbed my cam and went out in the back yard for a little break and filmed this. Very beautiful and romantic site in my opinion. Nothing like spending quality time with God and his creation.

Storms On The Horizon

First major production with new equipment and I just love it. Still learning but will get there in a short while. Each camera has its own style and I just have to learn how each one plays out and the setting to use and all so be patient with me please and not to hard on me :-). Got big plans and hope you guys will come along with me and see all there will be to see in the near future.

New Equipment Training Video 1

[Video]…

I have not made many videos because I have replaced all my equipment with upgrades and have been training with them for a while now and just got new tripods in and went out last evening to play with them and got this amazing video in the process. This shocked me as to how well this new camera zooms in and how vivid it is going to be. Hope you find this interesting and I look forward to filming some lightning this evening so be watching for that. This video is such a surprise to me because you can see the creators on the moon as well as the mountain ranges and the terminator from day to night it is absolutely amazing at the detail for this powerful little camera and this is not full zoom :-) still had quit a ways to go but was to much for it. On top of all this you can also see the

When It Hurts !

When It Hurts !…

How do I know it’s love ?
When you worry about someone just because.
When the thought of someone causes you to be sad because you never see them.
When someone is hurting and you hurt as well. and you cannot figure out just why.
When someone has been gone for years. and you think of them and you burst into tears for no reason.
When you cannot stop yourself from worrying about someone who is having difficulty and you want to do all you can to help them.
When everything inside you gets all balled up at the mention of that someone’s name.
When your emotions overwhelm you at a passing thought of that someone.
When the thoughts of that someone consumes you and never let’s you go.
When you are hurting inside because you think you could have done better by that someone.
When you leave that

Winter Storm Nemo

NEMO passes through Virginia with a gentle kiss as he is headed for the North East States and on his way to becoming a Historic Storm. This was 2:30 am last night and we had heavy rain and than a change over to sleet and snow as he passed through. The snow was coming down and it added up quickly and was a half inch on the ground within 15 minutes before changing back to rain. If it had of kept up it would have been a lot more, You could feel in the air that this storm was growing in strength and was on it’s way to becoming something very powerful.

I thought this would make an interesting video so I put this together and I myself quit enjoy this one. Hope you like and as always thanks for watching and see you on the next one.

Rapid Snow Melt

It warmed up so fast the morning after the snow and this is a little look at how fast, I have never seen it do this before or at least not here at my home anyway. It got so warm so fast the snow was turning to vapor right in front of me and the fence was acting like a furnace it was putting off heat so strong.

Majestic Moments In The Snow , By: Don

Warning From Above, Read Script before watching !

[Video]…

This may very well be the longest description I have ever done. The reason being that there is a most interesting story behind this video and it goes something like this. I know some people do not believe in God and that is ok and is their choice but please do not disrespect me because I do because I would never do this to you. I am not nor do I believe on forcing any religion on anyone ever. God wants us to decide on our own. It is that cut and dried so with that said here is the story behind this powerful video. It was on December 31 and I was not planing on filming any at all this day when I was told to get my camera and set them up so I did after a couple hours deliberation and when my boss speaks he means it but sometimes we try to be lazy but that was brought to a halt real
