I’m on red sky vacation… But try telling that to them.
My 2014 spring moth has come and gone, flown away in a subtle Malibu breeze, so nice to see him again. We talked many recent chilly mornings and dreamed big dreams together again. My sparrows are late, but Bella bing bing, mr cowboy and my dear earthshaker are in good spirits and patiently awaiting my newest musical adventures all whilst my color perceptions reset from the many years of saturated computer starings. I wasn’t kidding when I last said, “I’m bored”. I’m happily obsessed with music again as of late and slightly enjoying the mess and clutter of the unattended distractions of my former “connected” self. The clouds are coming… The clouds are coming!!!!!!!! “I’m dreaming of a green hillside’ just like the one I use to know”.

Ps Rainbows are like dragons, rarely seen and beautifully mysterious. It’s been to long my old friend… To too long.

Simple

I’m bored. I had a discussion with my brother this morning about art and the pursuit of that which makes us content and happy in life. It’s not just about taking pictures with me… it’s more than that. I believe the power of creation is my ultimate drug. It has nothing to do with money, although in these earthly clothes, money sure has a way of freeing up some quality time, otherwise spent keeping the head above water. As you may have noticed from this weeks “Surfside Holiday Image Follow Up” I’m a deep thinker when time is on my side. Oh yeh, it’s Christmas!! Post egg-nog, I’m hard at work in the video editing room these days creating something that is kinda creating itself really, but in the meantime of course, I’m watching for winter bliss in the form of Malibu weather and dramatic light. That’s me. This recent image in the Surfside was meant to be a simple tranquil long exposure that would hopefully take on a peaceful zen like look. It’s been done to death at piers in recent years, but I wanted one for myself. I used a Vari ND filter with a 30 second exposure just after a cloudy sunrise and over exposed a bit to help burn out the image in the sky and water. Where the water line met the horizon turned into a simple soft pencil line when I converted it to Black and White and that’s all I really wanted. Simple. Simple. Simple.-Pacheco

Christmas Starfish Love and The year of the 10th Fizzle, Malibu Pier on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Merry Christmas all…. I’m in a spell of west coast fizzles. The only incredible red skies I’ve seen have been the somewhat obstructed ones opposite me as I was busy running around chasing the moonset and moonrise in spooky coves. I chalked it up as taking one for the team I guess. I literally stood at the point, full moon on one side, red sunset sky on the other… decisions decisions decisions. Hardly am I faced with such splendid decisions in this ever growing and popular craft decided so frequently by miniscule luck over minutes of time this way or that. Even this day, as I raced down the PCH to INCREDIBLE blanketed cold skies that stretched as far as the eye could see, seconds after this snap, where the sun was exactly at the horizon in the distance….. swoooshhh…. it cleared out and completed fizzled to grey blah. It must be 10 or so fizzles in a row I’ve attended lately, including the wave daypachecolandscapes.tumblr.com/post/69088702066/this-is-the…
 that practically had me buying a new camera…  it can be quite disheartening for the radar nerd I am. So much effort, so little reward. And people wonder why some artist prints cost so much money. Well, what is your time worth to you?
There is a lot going on here, i like that about this image, it almost looks like I combined many different shots, but I didn’t. 
99.5 percent of this image is one snap… other than a super small cloud spot directly over the sun that was washed out in the main exposure. I painted it in with an underexposed snap I took seconds after this exposure.
If this image was a piece of music, i suppose it might be a dramatic finale called “The year of the 10th fizzle”www.pachecolandscapes.comwww.pachecolandscapes.tumblr.com

#9 Elusive Moons

Elusive Moons

Some people don’t know this, but, the full moon rises at a different azimuth (angle) each month of the year. Like the sunrise and sunset in a one year period, that distance is only between a given degrees. For sunrises and moonrises, that number is between 61 and 118 degrees approx., and for sunset and moonset it’s 242 and 299 degrees. Oh boy, that’s a lot of information at one time, well, what does it all mean you might ask. Once a year, when the moon decides to set or rise at its extreme azimuth, you have the opportunity for a rare full moonset shot. These locations can create rather unique looking images simply because you normally don’t see full moons there very often. I mark these dates and locations well in advance, circled on my calendar a year ahead, so it’s just a matter of waiting and remembering. I do the same thing with crescent moon locations which can be even trickier, although they follow the same rules with a few other variables involved. This top image, the one they recently ran in the Malibu Surfside News was taken in May, the 24th to be exact, so it’s a Full flower Moon set taken about half a mile or so down the left shoreline from the pier at 5:14am. It’s very peaceful there at that time, not a soul around, just the crashing waves amidst an eerie moon setting silence. It’s not hard to track me down, just watch for a full moon in Malibu, I’m the guy with the abnormally long beard running down the beach.

(Below) Another image of the same phenomenon. I was wondering on my way past the pier this very morning. If the moon goes around the earth and the earth around the sun, where is the sun going, and so on and so on. The world is a mathematical puzzle interlaced with reoccurring patterns over and over like a rolling ball. I find comfort in positioning myself in line with some of these patterns throughout the year. Like this moon event. I think the harder it is to see the pattern in life the more that we feel alive and human. It’s like the digital and analog controversy in music and photography. Personally, I would rather not see or feel the pattern. -Pacheco
