    Despite the rain, which nobody could control, I totally enjoyed the event. I was able to learn from Thomas and get some images that I normally would not have gotten. I'm already looking forward to attending another one.

    I took this photo off the stern of a transport ship on our way to the small artist enclave of Balestrand, Norway from Oslo. If you look VERY closely, there's a small boat in the water, dwarfed by the majestic mountains surrounding us.

    Title or Location: Table Rock Lake, Southwest Missouri
    My husband and I were cruising down Table Rock Lake Easter Sunday enjoying the scenery and wind in our hair after some late morning fishing for large mouth bass. As we sped by this bluff, I felt it calling to me. I held up my iPhone on a whim, trying to make sure the wind didn't snatch it from my hands and take it to the dark depths of the lake. I snapped a few shots. I didn't think I wasn't capturing anything special. When I reviewed and culled the shots later I was surprised to find that I

    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

    This photo captures a serene moment in my front yard, where I lay on a blanket beneath a amazing tree. The weather was ideal, prompting me to grab my micro lens and focus on this exquisite dandelion.

    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.
