    I attended a skyjoring event that took place in Downtown Salt Lake on February 10th. While I was focused on the horses and all of the fun right in front of me, I overheard someone next to me saying ?watch this, watch this?. So, of course, being curious I looked around and saw it was a reunion of these two people. Maybe they're family, or really good friends that I do not know. What I know is that I turned around, a manual 85mm lens on hand, and managed to snap the focus quick enough to f

    I took this photo when I was driving through the city. So, I stopped my car behind the Capitol and watched the landscape. The day was cold, gray and rainy. As I had my camera with me, I took this photo. I decided to photograph in Black and White because the day required it. Salt Lake City is beautiful, and I love photographing this city.Camera: Canon RPLens: 100 - 400mmF 5.6ISO 400No Flash

    Me and my camera went into the Upper Antelope Canyon on February 3rd. These Canyons are amazing anytime of the year. But the sun doesn?t reach down there much in the month of February. So, I had to resort to my iPhone to take photos. This photo is taken with my iPhone 15 Pro. It?s called ? Monument Valley during sunrise?

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

    I had shot the sunrise at Horseshoe Bend the same morning and was hoping for a blazing sunset at this location after talking to the other photographers present at sunrise. Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.

    I was on a leisurely family walk going towards Nene Valley Railway in Wansford when serendipity struck, and I found myself in the perfect spot to capture a captivating moment. The sight of a steam train preparing to depart from the station sparked a rush of excitement and nostalgia. The timeless allure of steam trains and the bustling atmosphere of the railway added a touch of history and charm to my photography experience.

    This one took a bit of planning to catch the Milky Way in the place I wanted, the Weather, Moon, and Milky Way core all had to be right and as you might guess it took a few seasons for it to come together, every time it was a walk in the dark over the sand dunes from Pennard to get to the right spot on the cliff edge, I'm a little picky when it comes to star trails and although there are certain formulas for shutter speed to "visibly" limit star trails I'd rather have none, so I dragged my Star
