These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art.

    Had a dream the night before that I was Alice from Alice in Wonderland, Disney movie and that morning it gave me inspiration to find a similar scenario for a photo scene. This was my previous job as a hostess here and I thought it would be the perfect seeing for a magical dreamland photo.

    As a retired educator, I have recently committed to developing my photography skills. In an effort to perfect my use of my new camera, I have been shooting loads of pics of family, friends and various outdoor locations. While in San Francisco in April, I noticed the street in the photo and jumped out of my car and photographed it.

    I was focusing on a Marsh Harrier and when I put the camera down I saw this Robin perched on the edge of my table. He just stared at me and patiently waited as I reset the camera. I still had my zoom on and almost fell off my seat leaning to get focus. The images of this bird are among my favourite sets....

    Castle Hill is an amazing location for Landscape and Astro photography. Used a Nikon Z6ii & 20mm 1.8 lens along with a lens warmer plus the Photo Pills planner.The moon was brighter than expected - 5 days old but it actually did us a big favour in lighting up the rocks with the Milky Way core above it. This is the jpeg with no edits.

    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.
