We were in San Francisco for the holiday weekend, and I brought my new camera to play around with. We were staying on the 26th floor of the Intercontinental Hotel on 5th Street and Howard, facing East. We were going out for the afternoon, so I propped up the camera on the window sill and set the intervalometer to shoot one photo every 10 seconds. You can see some slight movement as the vibration from the shutter caused the camera to drift slightly to the left. This is why a tripod is a necessity.
In this short sequence, you can see the weather go by and a few rain showers. I had intended to capture the nightfall, but obviously didn't set the camera's controls to go long enough. Still, this effort was better than my first attempt. I had set the timers and awoke to find the camera's battery was dead and it had taken no photos.
The view from this room was terrific, and the camera captured the weekend's weather quite nicely.
