Where's Waldo ? If you want to be happy for one night, get drunk. If you want to be happy for one week, get married. If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, embrace photography ! Photograph what you like - at least one person will admire the results. Don't worry about chasing the light - it travels much faster than you can - chase what intrigues you and record the images that make themselves available. Repeat if necessary. Photograph from the heart , not what is trendy or popular - if you always do what has already been done , you will only get what's already been got ! ... we as photographers try to capture unique moments in time - those unique moments are not worth much unless we share them with others ! ... life is short ... photograph hard ... email ... Always follow the 2 basic Rules of Photography Rule # 1 - there are no rules in Photography . Rule # 2 - refer to Rule # 1 ..... As a photographer , my goal is to be remembered as a disciple of Edward Abbey , not the next Edsel Adams !

Don't know Hal - dancer ( puppet ) seems to be popular in political circles - maybe we are both , depending on the situation ( I would rather be Hummingbird ) !

Nice light and wonderful composition, Heidiho!

LIKE With your permission, I will add you to my favourite photographers!

We are in contact!

Best regards ,Angel

Howdy Lloyd. B - it's a spider wed coated with moisture in the grass - can't remember whether it was from a lawn sprinkler or whether I anointed it with the ever handy photographer's squirt / spray bottle ! Anyway , I did a color shift ( white point balance ) with software to reduce the green and accentuate the yellow / orange tones !

Of course it's a great scan Eva - it's my brain on photography !!!

my sincere appologies lizab - the Scorched Earth / Manifest Destiny policy ( of numerous countries around the world ) is not my philosophy - it is the name of my photography business . That being said , I try to take and post images of the beauty and splendor of the world that Mother Nature provides and common people hold dearly - if only the politicians / dictators / governments / stockbrokers / lawyers could see the world in the same way ..... thus the name Scorched Earth Photography ..... and the method to my madness !

Thank you kindly Marlene - am not a flower expert and don't know if other species are open or partially closed at night - will definitely pay attention next spring / summer / fall !

Luck of the lens Greg - a hand held shot with an old 28 - 105mm f 2.8 autofocus lens ( no image stabilization ) . This sort of photography would probably require a small tripod and timed exposure to get away from the image noise at higher ISO's - would help to have 2 people - one to run the camera and another to do the light painting !

Howdy Greg - after experimenting with the 150 - 600mm lens , I find it to be extremely sharp , mobile , but lacks contrast ( especially in low light ) - pros and cons - lens needs lots of light and best shot at f10 - f18 at 600mm . At 150 - 400 mm , simply mind boggling what the new advances in lens technology ( and software )can do for the photographer Am planning to test it out with a 1.4 X tele-converter in the near future and will post or let you know how that pans out ! Have shot and tested a bunch of different lenses @ different focal lengths and never been overly impressed ( impressed enough to buy the lens ) until this lens came out - may not be the solution to everybody's telephoto woes , but if it works ( quality wise ) with a 1.4 X tele-extender it will be my go to lens ! Just remember to turn off the image stabilization !

I have chased the moon for 20 years Spencer - it rises approx 40 minutes later each evening and 2 degrees south of where it was the night before - tough to bracket , but fun to try and capture ! Drat those pesky clouds !!

Howdy spence-ation - this new lens is the first I have purchased in 10 years - first image stabilized lens in my arsenal - and I get sharper images with the stabilization turned off ( not that image stabilization is bad , but it does not work with my methodology ) - could just be the particulars of the lens , but have experimented with other stabilized lenses and have found them to be slow to focus with the way I photograph - image stabilization is great for hand held still life , but not so good for constantly moving wildlife - I shoot a lot in Al Servo mode , and Al Servo and Image Stabilization no likey each other - Al Servo is trying to keep up with the action , and stabilization is trying to stop it - a steady hand ( lay off the Starbucks , lean on the Budweiser) is best !

Nice scenery and framing! L 12. Friendly greetings, Petr

Hello lizab and thank you ! I eat late in the evening in the summertime - I barbeque and feast outside and photograph sunsets ( and enjoy the beverage of my choice ) and quite frankly enjoy the heck out of the evening !
