Re: Bird

The bird himself is magnificent. Yes, he might be more impressive grabbing a mouse out of the grass and soaring away into the sky, and he might be more impressive if captured with a little more clarity (I'm assuming that this was shot through a window or screen, like my hawk was), but birds don't kn...

Stars: Something New For Me

Well, I have just returned home, to reality, after a wonderful week at the beach in something resembling a castle belonging to one of my photoshop students. One of the things I did while there was attempt star photography. Duck tried to help me with it when we were on Monhegan but I couldn't get my ...

Perhaps. :D

Get ready for a lot of beach pictures. They are downloading and as I edit something interesting, I'll be sharing it. I had a lot of fun in this beautiful place, even though I didn't have my usual beach monkeys with me.

Well, I had to get a still life photo for this week’s challenge, and I’m not at home which presented a challenge. Here is what I found here at the beach. It is still.

Interesting fellow. What is he? And is his head really blue or is he simply reflecting that deep blue sky?

Re: Landscape - 4 Peaks

After bench testing a lens I purchased, it was time to take it out and chase some photons with it. The clouds that were initially there when I left but disappeared during the time I took to drive to this location. Still, there were photons to capture. 33°32'30.13"N, 111°37'13.36"W --Bob Well, you c...

I think I recognize Pandemic Photography. We have learned to find interesting subjects in the most mundane places. And a great sky can make any subject sing!
