Location: Bryce Canyon national park

Me and my beautiful wifeboth Cape Coral nativeswere married on 22721 here in SWFl and we traveled to park city Utah for our honeymoon. We made the 4 hour drive to Bryce Canyon because we had heard so many amazing things about the awe inspiring views. It did not disappoint. Bryce was full of natural wonders and I would recommend the trip to anyone who enjoys nature and an awesome adventure. You can check out my full trip on my YouTube channel Adventures of a Seaman along with many more awesome adventures.

Location: My home in Fishers, IN

I had seen someone working with prisms and thought it might be fun on those days I was unable to get outdoors. The prism is always sitting out in front of my window on the chance that sunlight might help create something interesting. The late afternoon sun was strong that day and I shut the blinds and once I sat down I saw the patterns of the blinds through the prism. Using my iPhone X-sMax I was able to turn the prism and my phone to get different angles otherwise not possible with my Nikon. Using Snapseed I converted the photos to Black & White.

Got a beautiful bouquet of tulips for my birthday and couldn't help putting one in my light box to shoot in the spirit of spring! I love shooting macro and was digging the yellow contrasts against the pink background!

Location: Sage Mountain Sanctuary, Park City Utah.

I'm a part time animal caretaker and photographer at Sage Mountain Sanctuary. Me and my wife Miranda were watching the sanctuary for the week and Bradley the steer came up to the house for snacks. The lighting was extremely harsh outside so I didn't attempt to take a photo. About 20 minutes later the sun slipped behind a cloud and made the lighting perfect. I told my wife now is the time, she didn't have shoes on, and I don't think I did either. We ran outside and as soon as I got into position for the photo Bradley lifted his head to give her a kiss. I took only three photos and captured exactly what I envisioned for the shot.

This image was from early morning. Loved the way the couple was enjoying the view. I cropped out the bicycle in Lightroom and removed the overhead branches in Photoshop. Added a Sunset preset.

Location: Arnfield Reservoir

I decided to take advantage of last Sunday's beautiful spring weather by exploring the local countryside with my camera. With no destination in mind when I set off, I hadn't planned to arrive at Arnfield Reservoir at sunset, and having never been before, I was completely unaware of the serene beauty I was about to witness. I couldn't resist the opportunity to capture the vibrant sunset colours reflecting off the water - it was the perfect backdrop behind rowing boats and jetty. I hadn't brought my tripod, but as I wanted to capture the scene in HDR, I used a shutter speed of 1250 and ISO 800 in the hope there would be no alignment issues when combining the handheld triple-bracketed exposures in Lightroom. I already have unsteady hands, so didn't want to leave anything to chance!

Location: National Art Gallery Canberra

Within without is an art work by James Turell. One thing amazing about this art work that it looks like a simple dome from the outside. Once you enter, you will see how the sunlight brings out the exquisite colours in the walls and turquoise water in the middle of the dome. This place is very aesthetic. I took this photo using my iPhone 11. I used Lightroom to bring out the actual colours. It is best to take photos here during day light as the artist uses light as its medium.

It is situated in the Australian Garden on the south side of the National Art Gallery.

This image was taken using the Eric Pare lightpainting tubes, which are from stock clear tube and add various layers reflectors, gels, protectors, covers to achieve the different colors and effects. These tubes are made of polycarbonate, making them super light-weight.
Taken with a Nikon D750, Nikon 16-35mm lens, ISO 100, SS 4 seconds at f8.
The model was holding a light book to light her face

Location: Lapstone Creek Tunnel Emu Plains

The photo was taken during the evening around 8 pm.
I had seen a picture of the tunnel and the graffiti on the walls in google maps. I thought it would be a great place to experiment with some light painting. I had visited the tunnel once prior to find it and took a couple of shoots. The revisit I was a bit more prepared and took some props.
Post editing was to convert to B&W with contrast and sharpening.
Taken on Sony A7III F10 20sec ISO 125

Location: The Dark Hedges Co Antrim

This is a photo of the Dark Hedges in Co Antrim. I took this over six years ago with an old phone and completely forgot I had taken it until I found it on my computer last week. I did some editing using lightroom to remove some distractions and slightly enhanced the colour too. I loved the Game of Thrones series and was super excited to visit this magical place when on holiday with family that year. We are looking forward to visiting this place again once restrictions are lifted.

Location: Athens NY

To got this shot at a training exercise. The Firefighters were practicing search and rescue in a live fire situation. The firefighter was reaching out to grab a pike pole that was being handed to him. I did not realize the magnitude of the picture until I arrived home and reviewed the shot.

Location: Johns Island, SC

This was taken on a 7 acre area off River Road. I knew I was gonna get something special at some point with all these beautiful trees. Just had to wait it out. I believe this was late morning and I was outside doing some yard work and looked into the front yard and there it was. I grabbed my camera and got positioned where I thought would be the best shot and honestly, nature did the work. I didn't do anything to this shot. The picture took care of itself. It definitely is one of my favorites.

I only get to go out with my camera at the weekends at this time of year so when i checked the weather and saw it was going to be a calm misty morning I had to get out. I knew that the chance of a lake mist being on Dishley pool would be high and it very local to me, it didn't disappoint, i watched these two swans for some time hoping that they would form the perfect heart shape as they floated around the lake this was as close as they came to that shape, it was a very peaceful time watching them perfect morining.

Camera setting where 600mm f6.3 11250s ISO 800 taken on a Sony a7rii. Some light processing done in lightroom to bring out the blue tones that where being refected in the mist of the sky above and the warm glow from the morning sun just catching the swans necks.

This was my third year of attempting to try and photograph the annual Gallaghers Fireworks display.

Veasna's first time was in 2018. She guessed vaguely where the fireworks would be launched from and found a viewing spot near the road so her family and self could beat the traffic after the show. The result was some blurry fireworks exploding over the top of a tree line, so I decided to be a bit more prepared next time around.

The second time I tired was in 2020. Having watched a bunch of YouTube videos about fireworks photography before hand, my family and I came down to the lake front right near the water to have a picnic dinner. I had time to setup my camera and compose my shots, and when the fireworks start she discovered that she was facing in the wrong direction and to turn 90 degrees to my right. The resulting images weren't too bad given the last second repositioning.

With the lessons learned from those previous attempts, She then decided to take some time to visit the lake in the afternoon to look around and saw the fireworks being setup on a raft. When she returned in the evening with her family for a picnic, Veasna was able to see the raft in the middle of the lake and choose a nice spot for us to eat a wait for the fireworks.

The only hiccup she had was when about 2 minutes from the end of the fireworks display her camera's battery ran out. She instantly panicked, fumbled in the dark to open the battery compartment, however during her fumbling the battery flap fell off my camera into my hand, and I decided to call it a night. So I did miss capturing any images of the finale of the display, but I suppose that's something I can do the next time.

This is one of the most photographed locations in Perth,
Western Australia. So it is hard to come up with new and
interesting compositions. To accomplish the light trails ,
a shutter speed of 25 seconds was used along with a
Pixelstick.
Shot on a canon eos r

Peter has been to La Perouse many times , it's a great place to watch the clear sunset in Sydney. This day was cloudy and windy, he made the long exposure photography work in these conditions. The composition comes with Bare Island, ocean, rocks and the blurred sky which can make the photo. Thank you Peter this is a beautiful image.
