    Becca is so helpful and easy to talk to. I ask a lot of questions; some of them are very basic, and I?ve asked them a few times as I?m learning. She?s so patient and such a great resource . The whole group was fun to be with. I learned something from everyone.

    was a great learning event -- I now understand how to 'use' the manual settings in a way that makes sense; having the opportunity to have 'hands on' experience in different settings was the key; Becca was wonderful; patient and spent time with everyone as we asked questions; the small group was also great.

    I went out in search of a foggy barn scene. By the time I got to the area most of the good photogenic fog had burned off - and I was slightly lost - so I decided to give up and head home. The GPS nav guided me down a road I'd never been on and I came across a bridge covered in heavy graffiti. I intended to shoot this with a CPL filter and drag the shutter a little, but I dropped the CPL filter. You wouldn't think those bounce as well as they do, and it was whisked quickly down stream.

    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having

    A friend of mine discovered this bald eagle nest just north of Lititz. I've been keeping an eye on it for a decent shot. This adult has been keeping guard of its juveniles for some time now. I finally saw the adult sitting just to the right of the nest. I am a very new and amateur photographer and still very much learning. I travel quite a bit and enjoy shooting the places I visit but also love wildlife photography. I really didn't process much other than bring up some of the exposure to g

    Me and my partner spent the day at Bempton cliffs and this was the only lone puffin that had it back to the sea, He/she was clearly not wanting to socialise with other birds. Possibly in a bad mood. This is why this particular puffing grabbed my attention.
