  • Great images, your Church of Budir is fantastic. Thank you for sharing, wife and I will be in Iceland this November.
  • Submitted a challenge entry Castle Rock
    Taken at late dusk at a land feature known as Castle Rock. There is a loop trail that goes past this feature that is hiked, skied etc. This was taken at late dusk 9pm. The sun is steadily rising till we will be 24hrs of sun. Is a great time of year for views if the weather cooperates which this year has been more overcast than my previous season's. 
 On the right side of the image is a Kassbohrer PB100 track vehicle. It is one of two Search and Rescue equipped vehicles we have at McMurdo Station. The piece that extends above on the bracket is the radar.

 Thank you for viewing and hope you enjoy the image. I welcome any comments, critiques you wish to share.

  • You could check with the maker of your current trigger. As the D850 has the same 10 pin connection as your D700 it should work. The remote triggers I see listed for the D850 also have ...

  • Unless you plan to print signs you will likely want the pro-4000 not the pro-4000s. The 4000 is geared towards photography using 11 colors and chrome optimizer the 4000s is 8 colors no chrome ...

    Art is in the eye of the beholder for sure. What is creativity in your opinion?

  • Commented on photo Observation in the Night work.. challenge

    For the sky to not have star trails and to have stars in focus I focus on a star and the settings were F1.4, 6seconds at ISO-3200.
    The land has two focus points, settings were F4, 30 seconds at...

    Thank you for commenting Mike and glad you enjoy the image.

    Would be very misleading to let you think this was all done at F4, so I apologize it appears that way. This is a focus stacked image...

    Thank you Ruth, great to hear you enjoy this! The morning of this shoot was a bit chilly but some other times out have been much harsher. If I was to guess the temps that morning I would say -25F...

  • Submitted a challenge entry Nacreous
    My experience is less likely to see Nacreous clouds than Aurora activity. Last year we had a few small ones but a sky full is not seen yearly, least not from Ross Island Antarctica. This day has been out only real showing so far and it was fantastic the whole area was a pastel cast with Nacreous clouds out in full. This is a single image from a time-lapse taken. 

Thank you for looking and hope you enjoy the image.
