    This is Holy Nativity Church in Rockledge, PA. I've passed this church a hundred times and this time I decided to go out and make some photographs. I walked around the church photographing it from many different angles and perspectives, both using a regular color DSLR, and also a DSLR converted to record Infrared light. This image is an Infrared look at the church and surrounding environment. There is a saying in the Infrared world, "If there is magic to be found in Infrared, it will be found in

    This photo was taken November 5, 2023 at 3:45 PM. While walking around my property looking for a subject to photograph, I thought of a technique I recently heard of to move the camera while using a slow shutter speed. With the Nikon D3500 in Manual mode, f/22, 1/1.6 sec., ISO 100, 18mm, I clicked off the first photo. Thinking it to be too dark, I readjusted my settings and took 6 more exposures. Turns out the dark photo was the keeper.

    During Sunset on Oct 26, I decided to head to the lookout spot at Hawk Mountain to take some scenic pictures of the Autumn Season. Once I made it to the spot, I saw a couple playing the guitar together further down from the lookout spot and decided to take some pictures of them. The couple, the ocean of autumn colored leaves, and the aesthetics of the guitar all looked so beautiful to me and I?m glad I was able to get this captured. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do!Captured with my

    Horseshoe Bend near Page Arizona. A great place to take a sunset photo since the sun sets directly behind it as shown and as it does it lights up the foreground rocks nice and orange. You will need to bracket your exposures and blend in HD to get the best photo if you want a star burst or wait till after the sun sets and you will get an amazing gold color on the horizon. Just don't get too close to the edge of course. Easy access off of route 89 south just south of Page AZ. About a half mile ea

    I made this picture from the top of the Spiral Deck Parking Garage. I love going up there to get a higher perspective. I was wandering the streets with my 90mm lens on this day. The photo was captured at around 10 in the morning on December 26th, 2022. At the time, the restaurant was the Linden Diner. However, it has since been transformed into Crown Fried Chicken!!Gear: Sony A7iv with 90mm Macro f2.8Camera settings: f2.8, 1/1000s, 100 ISOFun fact: In the edit, I removed all color from

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    Title or Location: Tacking Point Lighthouse, Port Macquarie
    Last February, I left Sydney with my friends at 6pm to capture the first Milky Way view of 2024. I was very anxious because I saw a lot of clouds on the way, but I was really happy to see clear skies as I passed Newcastle. When we arrived at the lighthouse, fortunately we were the only ones in the group, so we were able to take photos without any disturbance. The lighthouse light, which was not too bright, was very helpful in filming.

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha
