    Downtown Fresno is a great source for urban landscape photography. While walking near the train tracks I noticed a wall had recently been constructed parallel to the tracks with a rectangular opening. As I got closer I could see the framed image...I could not resist taking the picture. I used my Ricoh GRiiix 26mm (40mm equivalent), set at f/7.1, 1/1600sec, ISO 400.

    I recently bought a Tesla and noticed the strange reflection coming off the front window when it rained. So I grabbed my camera on Sunday morning and started shooting. Canon R6, 35mm Macro lens, ISO 500, F8 at 1600sec.

    Comet 12/P Pons-Brooks traveling at 40,000mph as it makes its way through our solar system. It'll be another 71 years before Pons-Brooks makes its way through here again.Comets are an interesting challenge because they travel at a different speed and direction from everything around them. Imagine taking a long exposure of two cars traveling different directions and speed. How not to blur the stars or the comet can be a challenge. This was 23x180sec frames stacked.

    I love doing street photography. I generally look for street scenes that tell a story. This particular photo was taken in the tourist area of Monterey. I edited the photo in Lightroom, primarily a little cropping and adjusting white balance, B&W conversion, contrast, etc. I took the photo with my trusty Ricoh griiix, 26mm (40mm equivalent), 1/800 sec, f/6.3, ISO 400.

    The Rosette Nebula approx 5200 light years from my front yard. A beautiful winter target located in a rich star forming region of space near Orion. This image was captured using a William Optics GT71 telescope and a ZWO ASI294mm Pro monochrome camera. This was a 3 hour exposure. 12x300 second exposures for each color channel. Each color channel was processed independently before combining into the final image.

    Title or Location: Fresno (behind Fresno State campus)
    I had recently started studying the moon and thought about trying to get a shot that would show the dark side of the moon. After many failed attempts this past year I was finally able to get one after the skies were clear from the rain. This was a blended shot. I had to use multiple exposures to get the effect. This was shot on a Sony A7iii with the 100-400 g master lens using the 2x teleconverter for an equivalent of an 800mm lens. Settings were: 1/5 sec/F11/ISO:6400 and 1/800 sec/ F11/ISO:5000

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
