"Golden Grand View"

"The Great Thorn"

Charles Harris 

Great White Throne was shot Christmas Eve, 2014, Tri-X film with a Rolleiflex.                                                        Red filter to darken sky and bring out clouds.

I've been a photographer since the '60's, did newspaper and TV photography after finishing college.Prefer black and white and do all

 

"White Sands"

David Blanchard

 

A strong weather system moved across New Mexico bringing heavy rain and even a few severe thunderstorms to the White Sands region in the late afternoon and evening. The next morning we returned to the monument and were greeted with large lakes of shallow water from the previous days rain. Most of the footprints in the sand had been erased by the wind and rain leaving the dimpling pattern seen here. I was especially attracted to the delicate curves in the sand dunes contrasted with the sharper lines of the distant mountains.

"Humphrey Trees"

David Blanchard 

While traversing the upper slopes of Humphreys Peak on a spring ski trip we encountered these two trees covered with snow and rime. The delicate structure of the rime on the trees is what first caught my attention. But it is the contrast between the snow-covered trees and the bare ground of the lower elevations and the cloud-filled sky in the background that make the trees stand out.

"Cathedral Reflection"

Jody Tanner

Taken in March, 2015, this image of Cathedral Rock in Sedona was taken at sunset as the light turned the rocks this beautiful color.  Taken with a Nikon D600, ISO was set at 800, aperture was at f/2.8, exposure time was 1/500, and focal length on the 24-85mm telephoto was 35mm. This shot was handheld.  It was taken as a jpeg and it was cropped in Photoshop Elements.

 "Kerlingafgarfjöll Geothermal Area"

Mike Stump

The location for this photograph is the geothermal area

located in the Kerlingarfjöll mountains of the Highlands of Iceland.

I visited this site as part of a photography workshop in September of 2014.

 

 

"Waiting for a Meteor Shower"

Jody Tanner 

 

In April, 2014, I was up long before dawn to capture the Eta Aquarids meteor shower.  

Although I didn’t see any meteors,  I did make this photo of the Milky Way from Upper Lake Mary near the boat ramp at 3:22 am.    

I set up my Nikon D600 with the following settings:  f/2.8 at 16mm, ISO 800, 39 second exposure.

I used a cable release to reduce camera shake.  I shot this as a jpeg and used Photoshop

Elements for cropping, sharpening, and some exposure correction.
