    In June of 2023 I was fortunate enough to go on a photo trip guided by photographer/equine expert Jen Rogers to see and photograph the Onaqui Herd of Wild Horses. It was truly a magical day to spend with them and there were several times I was so mesmerized watching the horses I almost forgot I had my camera. This horse was particularly amazing and the setting was gorgeous.

    You can't keep a photographer down...while remaining sheltered from others on June 27, 2020 we decided to take a Jeep ride out to the Simpson Springs, Pony Express Outpost. The Onaqui Mountain Wild Horse Management is managed by the BLM Wild Horse and Burro program management. I had heard of these amazing horses and desperately needed to get out of the house. These horses were absolutely stunning. I simply stood near their herd and watched in utter amazement at their wildness and beauty. The h

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
