    Good learning experience. It would have been better to have not been at the same place as a wedding . There was a lot people and kids running around in the same space we were in. Would have been nicer for sunset shoot to be a little more peaceful

    Title or Location: St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park
    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    I went on a hike in Yosemite Valley and unexpectedly found this tree that had a heart shaped hole in the trunk. I stayed until dusk and used my red light on my headlamp to cast the red glow inside the heart. I was inspired by my then girlfriend. I love LOVE!

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

    Cremorne Point is always a favourite choice to capture the southerly sunsets with the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline in the frame. This isn't a long exposure shot but a motion blur added to the water in post production.
