    This is a photo I took of Kelly Halliburton, the bass player for the band Jenny Don?t and The Spurs when they performed at Aces High Saloon in Salt Lake City. When I asked the band if it was ok that I took some pictures, Kelly told me it was fine as long as they weren?t terrible. He said that someone had taken a photo of him at a really fast shutter speed and it showcased a clump of neck fat. I warned him that I was a mediocre photographer but I?d do the best I could. I always try to get good,

    The day before I took this photo I switched to a mirrorless camera so this photo was part of my testing of the camera (which I love). The shot is straight out of camera with just a little increase in exposure and some sharpening. I used a 50 mm. lens and a Canon R7 mirrorless camera. I love old books and flowers past their prime. I am lucky enough to have several old books of my grandmother's which all include inscriptions from her Papa and her siblings. These books are now over 100 years o

    Title or Location: Rocky Mountain National Park
    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having

    A friend of mine discovered this bald eagle nest just north of Lititz. I've been keeping an eye on it for a decent shot. This adult has been keeping guard of its juveniles for some time now. I finally saw the adult sitting just to the right of the nest. I am a very new and amateur photographer and still very much learning. I travel quite a bit and enjoy shooting the places I visit but also love wildlife photography. I really didn't process much other than bring up some of the exposure to g

    Me and my partner spent the day at Bempton cliffs and this was the only lone puffin that had it back to the sea, He/she was clearly not wanting to socialise with other birds. Possibly in a bad mood. This is why this particular puffing grabbed my attention.
