Boonsboro Window

Boonsboro Building by Elaine Hancock

Posted on 2020-05-28

I needed to get out of the house so I took a drive to Middletown and Boonsboro, MD. Boonsboro was founded by George Boone, a cousin of Daniel Boone, and was originally named "Margaretsville" after his wife. Boonsboro was a key town during the Civil War. Two battles were fought in its borders. The town was also used to keep wounded soldiers after the Battle of Antietam in September 1862.

Fissure 8, Kliauea Volacano, Hawaii

Fissure 8, Kliauea Volacano, Hawaii by Don Smith

Posted on 2020-04-25

I was editing images for my book project yesterday when I came upon this image captured on the early morning of June 1, 2018. I joke that most dads take their sons fishing or golfing, but I took my youngest son Aaron on a doors-off helicopter ride to photograph the famed Fissure 8 on the Big Island of Hawaii. We had to wait 5 days to get booked and then departed out of Hilo Airport on a Friday morning at 7am (first copter up). I had read that pilots could get no closer than 5 miles and was surprised when our pilot asked me how close I wanted to get?

Supermoon Rising Over Santa Clara Valley, Calif

Supermoon Rising Over Santa Clara Valley, Calif by Don Smith

Posted on 2020-04-10

This was the first glimpse at the supermoon from my vantage point above the southern end of Santa Clara Valley (Silicon Valley) here in California. Almost didn't shoot this but kind of liked the warm glow as dusk was nearing its end. I felt the Sony a7RIV captured the subtleties of the soft light excellently.

Teaching Amid pandemic

Teaching in a Time of Pandemic by John

Posted on 2020-03-26

On a normal Thursday morning I am facing a classroom full of eager young undergraduates, anxious to drink from the fountain of wisdom. Alas, the campus closed last week and everybody has been sent home. Along with many others in academia, I am learning the ins and the outs (mostly outs) of remote teaching—sitting alone in my cave talking to a lap top.

Kind of like Rocky Raccoon but more frothy at the mouth. This cute little fella almost jumped me one sunny afternoon - he was big !

Historic House of Refuge, Stuart FL

House of Refuge by Fran

Posted on 2019-12-10

The House of Refuge at Gilbert's Bar at sunset.

This is the oldest building in Martin County and the lone survivor of ten original rescue stations along Florida's Atlantic coast. These lifesaving stations for shipwrecked sailors were established in 1876 and manned by keepers, much like lighthouses. They were isolated and lonely assignments.

The tower was added in 1942 to watch for German U-boats that were torpedoing freighters along the Treasure Coast.

Now the House of Refuge is a museum managed by the Elliott Museum but its rescue mission continues now focused on sea turtles.

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

I'm not sure how it looks the rest of the year, but April seemed to be the perfect time to see the garden full of flowers growing among the glass features.

My Younger Years by Don Smith

I used to photograph pro sports full-time for a living and landscape photography was my "hobby." Wow how times have changed. My good buddy Brad Shirakawa sent me this image from Candlestick Park in 1997 of me covering a game between the Dallas Cowboys and SF 49ers. Please don't ask me the score

Holi Indian festival colors colours Spring Hindu

Happy Holi 2020 by Sugata

Posted on 2020-03-10

Holi is a major festival celebrated all over India, primarily by Hindus. On this day of the spring full moon, people put dry and wet colours over each other in joyous celebration.

We live in the US Midwest, far from India. We try to celebrate these festivals in our own way, with whatever things we get in the stores here. Going outside and playing with wet colours is usually quite impossible due to the freezing temperatures. So this year we celebrated Holi this year by giving some dry colours to our 22-month old daughter to play with. Here's a photo from what followed.

Brooklyn sunrise

Brooklyn sunrise by Doug

Posted on 2020-01-04

Sara and I had the pleasure of visiting New York for the first time in December while on an amazing cruise on the Queen Mary 2 to both New York and some of the incredible Caribbean islands to celebrate the year of our 30th anniversary and a milestone birthday for Sara. This was one of the first sights we had after we docked in the cruise terminal in Brooklyn, for us it was a day of incredible city sights and we were so lucky with clear skies and a temperature of 15 deg C to experience the Big Apple.

I would like to wish everyone who knows me on AM3 a very happy and healthy 2020.

Bulldog. New Bedford Massachusetts.

Bulldog. New Bedford Massachusetts. by Shaun

Posted on 2019-11-22

I have always been interested in ships especially working ships. Living near the Atlantic, I like to visit the many ports and docks around the coast in New England. One of my favorite places to visit is the huge fish dock in New Bedford and photograph the many different fishing boats that use the docks. Each time I go to New Bedford, I have to admire the crews of the trawlers that go to sea in very dangerous conditions to catch fish.

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).

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

"A Left-Eyed View", Sabourin, "Jack Benny"

Waukegan, United States

Flag of US

STatue of Jack Benny recently outfitted with a face mask. This STatue is located in downtown Waukegan, Illinois (his hometown). He STares across the STreet toward the Genesee Theatre which is shuttered due to the COVID pandemic.

This mask is homemade. You can't waste a much-needed mask on an inanimate object. It's a PSA without saying a word.

Happy Silly Tuesday!

Pandemic Sunset

Pandemic Sunset by Daniel

Posted on 2020-04-18

My usual sunrise and sunset location is close to the public due to the pandemic. Some geniuses still gather there, despite strict social distancing regulations and the fact that the park is closed. I think this view is pretty nice although I don't know that it is as nice as from the park.This is about 4 minutes walking from my door.

here's shootin' back at you by Harry

Posted on 2020-02-08

this mural was painted on wall in an alley barely wider than a car. standing with my back against the other wall, with my zoom cranked wide, I still was unable to get the whole image including the frame-like painted border. So I cropped the edges a bit. While all the tones are white to black, the photo was not converted.

Seattle Folk Singer

Seattle Singer by Jennadea

Posted on 2006-11-09

In the late 80's, when I moved to Seattle, there was a strong artsy, independent vibe in the city and lots of musicians would hang out on the streets and perform. This was before Microsoft and the slick high tech vibe that dominates the city today...

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!

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.

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 :-)
