Tunnel View Blue Hour

Tunnel View Blue Hour by CW McGowen

Posted on 2017-05-31

The camera does not interpret light like our brains. The camera sees light strictly by its frequency. Understanding the temperature of light can open a whole new set of photographic opportunities.

Just after dusk when the reds have left the sky and yet the sky still has some residual light is called the Blue Hour by photographers. In this Blue Hour photo of Yosemite Valley you can see a couple of the first visible stars of the night if you look closely.

Marshallberg Computer Repair by Harry

Posted on 2019-09-26

Not exactly a high tech building, and it was closed on a weekday when we drove by. Fortunately, all our computers were working. Oh, and the back of the building and the side formed a retail greenhouse (also closed and completely overgrown).

Frog in Gazebo at Stonecrop Garden, Cold Spring NY

Frog in a Gazebo by Fran

Posted on 2019-09-11

We found this frog sitting in a gazebo perched on the water of a pond at the Stonecrop Garden in Cold Spring, New York. Once the home of Anne and Frank Cabot, it is now a public garden featuring alpine troughs, planted stone walls, a rockery, water gardens, woodlands and meadows. There is also a formal English style flower garden that is entered through a wall that very much reminded me of "The Secret Garden," a book I loved as a child.

Missing Horse?

Missing Horse? by Anita

Posted on 2019-07-27

On one of our extremely hot and humid days, our Amish friends stopped to water and cool off their overheated horse. They eventually decided not to tax the horse further, hence young man pulling buggy the 1/4 mile home--mostly downhill.

I usually claim to be a nighttime photographer, but this particular photo was taken early in the morning. At 4:50 am, to be specific, which is about as late as I can photograph at this time of the year before the rising sun steps in and asserts its absolute dominance over the illumination of any given scene.

As an aside, many years ago a semi-famous chef / restaurant owner lived in this relatively modest house.

Motorcycle Honeyhole

Motorcycle Honeyhole by Phil Morris

Posted on 2012-06-18

There was talk at the time (early 1980's) of a place in New York state where motorcycles had
been stored for over 20 years, the owner had reservations of showing this sweet spot but had given in, the time for the building was up fast...

Gravesites of Civil War and WW1 Veterans

Paying Respects by Denny Jump

Posted on 2010-07-04

In Easton, PA where i currently live, there are some fascinating cemeteries. This one has several graves of Civil War and WW1 veterans as well as veterans of other wars. On this July 4, I think it is especially important that we remember all of our military men and women who do so much to protect us and our freedom and independence.

The lake was refreshing this day. We were careful to keep a look out for bears as they like to eat the huckleberries that grow at the south end of the lake.

Wood Duck Hen and Her Brood on "Jump Day"

Wood Duck Hen and Her Brood on "Jump Day" by Donna

Posted on 2019-05-22

"Jump day" is the day the ducklings leave the nest, which is usually 24 hours after hatching.

Wood Ducks often make their nests in holes in trees, many feet off the ground. On "jump day," the hen waits on the ground and calls the ducklings. They have to jump out of the nest and fall to the ground.

I didn't see these ducklings jump, but they are so tiny, this has to be their first day on the water.

Monarch butterfly caterpillar

Monarch Butterfly Caterpillar J4 by Bud or Dell

Posted on 2019-09-19

I found another Monarch butterfly caterpillar beginning to form a J in preparation for transforming into a chrysalis. I will monitor this one and hope it is not snatched by a predator. It is not in a very safe spot so I may bring it inside to complete its metamorphosis.

Knot eye by Harry

Posted on 2019-08-26

After shooting under the pier a while, we went up on it. A light green, almost yellow-green lichen covered the smooth surfaces leaving the grain and any raised ridges exposed. A number of the knots could be interpreted as eyes, and this is the best one I saw

Can you spare a quarter? by Harry

Posted on 2019-07-03

The phone had been ripped out, though the booth remained. When my daughter was in high school, there was a country song about borrowing a quarter to call a lost love. It was a surprise to me that calls had gone up from a dime.

A view inside Storys Creek School, a one room schoolhouse. It was originally north of Eminence, MO. It served as the main school from 1896 to 1957. It was moved in 1971 to be part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways Park near Alley Spring, Missouri. My aunt went to this school. Notice the paddle hanging up by the window!

Wet & Cold - Not a Happy Camper

Wet & Cold - Not a Happy Camper by Jerry

Posted on 2019-09-15

In the last 3 days we had intense sunshine, next day we had thunder, lightening and heavy rain, and today we had rain, strong winds, a high tide and rough seas.

This Heron let me get fairly close because he was too cold and wet to fly away. I saw two Herons and all the rest were Pelicans and Seagulls. The Sandpipers disappeared.

The Patsy Carolyn by Harry

Posted on 2019-09-01

This colorful shrimper sank during hurricane Florence (September 2018). I was with a group of 4 photographers, and we were all attracted to this wreck, and all ended up with variations of this shot. One of my friends ambitiously photoshopped out the rope and its reflection, another included most of the mast, and one included some ragged grass/weeds as a foreground. All of repeatedly slipped up and called her the "Patsy Cline."

Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls by Ian Bramham

Posted on 2019-07-26

In June I was lucky enough to be able to visit Yosemite. The waterfalls were in full flow and the power of the water took my breath away!

This photo was taken with my DSLR and I was surprised that I got anything useable as the spray from the falls was horizontal and filled the was like standing in a heavy rainstorm with the water moving straight at the camera. I covered the camera lens with my hand until the last second and quickly pressed the shutter button, with no time to compose

Moonrise Behind El Capitan and Half Dome, Yosemite

Moonrise Behind El Capitan and Half Dome, Yosemite by Don Smith

Posted on 2019-07-24

Back in April 2011 I was co-instructing Gary Hart's spring Yosemite Workshop when Gary calculated this crescent moonrise at dawn behind El Capitan (left) and Half Dome. Talk about one that almost got away... I had forgotten to take my 300mm lens out of stabilizer mode and unlike today's lenses, that would create unwanted movement as I was on a tripod. I got three sharp images and this was the money shot so someone was smiling down on me :-)

Scituate Spit. Massachusetts.

Scituate Spit. Massachusetts. by Shaun

Posted on 2019-07-10

Scituate was settled by a group of people from Plymouth about 1627, who were joined by immigrants from the county of Kent in England. They were initially governed by the General Court of Plymouth, but on October 5, 1636, the town incorporated as a separate entity. The name Scituate is derived from "satuit", the Wampanoag term for cold brook, which refers to a brook that runs to the inner harbor of the town. In 1710, several residents emigrated to Rhode Island and founded Scituate, Rhode Island,

I had been watching several Washington webcams before the trip. The webcam at Kalaloch Lodge showed mostly dull gray rainy weather all the time leading up to the trip. I was delighted with this blue hour view as I stood near the webcam camera when we were there.

STI FONTVIEILLE. Outward Bound From Boston. by Shaun

Posted on 2019-05-29

I have always been interested is ships. Each time I look at large vessels entering or leaving ports, I always admire the small tug boats that guide large ships and the skill of the crew that maneuver huge ships into position when entering narrow docking areas.

Buzzed Bird

Buzzed Bird by Jerry

Posted on 2019-05-09

I'd been chasing Snowy owls for ~5 months. It is difficult to get a unique photo of these birds. She was resting on a log. I had been observing her for about 15 minutes when all of a sudden she jumped straight up into the air. It startled me but I snapped a quick photo and then turned around, rather irritated, to see who had walked up behind me and scared the bird, but no one was there? Finally, I saw that two black bumble bees had buzzed her. That scared her and caused her to hover in the air.

New Bedford. Massachusetts. by Shaun

Posted on 2019-03-26

I like to visit the fishing port of New Bedford, the largest fishing port in the U.S. The port is always busy and there are always a large number of trawlers landing their catches there. I have always admired the fishermen who go to sea to catch fish sometimes in very dangerous weather.
