The Road to Giant's Causeway.
Taken from above Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland, facing west. Could have stood there all day. That coastline though.
Taken on my Sony a6000 and the kit lens, 16-50mm. Always on hand, it's my little buddy. Super light, portable, sturdy, and delivering results that I love.

Since we headed out to the Sahara for a wedding, there wasn't much say in when we'd go. It so happened that we were there over the full moon, which was in the sky from sunset to nearly dawn, drowning out nearly all the stars. It disappeared 1 hour before sunrise, but even by then the light was showing up for dawn (at least, to the camera if not to my natural eye).
Still, I looked out at this lake and just imagined it full of reflecting stars at another time of the month. It made me glad, to know such a sight existed, but also sad that I wouldn't see it that way, personally. These flooded lakes that appear are fairly rare in the Sahara, maybe once in 10 years they said.
So on our last night I dragged myself from bed (and no, I do not like getting up before the sun) to the edge of the lake and did my best. The dawn came fast and hungry but I got a few images before the stars vanished. This is one of them.
Back to Morocco next month with The Giving Lens. Dates were specifically picked for dark skies :) Here's hoping my lake is still there.

Taken mid-morning in Eastern Washington as we were driving home from our camping trip Wyoming. Something about this scene just makes me happy. I think it's his hands on his hips. I wonder what he was thinking about.
(Sony A7ii + 70-200mm @ f/8)

I think the haze was from the start of some forest fires in Idaho. At the time I was quite pleased with all the pink. Towards the back of the image you can see a smoking cone.

A somewhat vintage treatment courtesy of Nicolesy. Crossing around Palawan required going by boat in some places, so we have a little time to kill in the ports. This guy was the end of (i assume) a long day and was lost in his thoughts. I caught his gaze and the result is this shot. There's just something about it that I really like.

Taken on a #sony #A6000 walking home from the beach in Barcelona. Being small enough to fit in my little bag made it easy to capture quick moments like this one, which is entirely part of the reason I wanted some lighter gear anyway - so my camera could always be with me, never knowing when something beautiful was around the corner.
As summer comes to an end again, i'm mystified that this was already a year ago. Me thinks it's time to start cooking up new plans!
Last month Peter and I went to Tofino for our anniversary and had perfect blue skies. Part of the reason we went to Tofino was that the west coast Fog Belt of the island still allowed campfires. Sitting around the fire is like 97.2% of the reason I bother to go camping in the first place.
The sunday we woke up to intensely orange skies and a red sun trying desperately to burn through. It looked like another planet. We learned there was a fire at one of the lakes near to Port Alberni.
This was an eerie scene from Long Beach, taken at high noon. The smoke, the orange, and the heat from the smoke was super intense. It was one of the weirdest days of surfing I've ever had, atmosphere wise.
[I took this shot on a 70-200mm lens, at 200mm, on my a7ii. I tried to get a slow shutter to let the waves soften, which at 200mm is difficult to get anything sharp (camera shake). The a7ii has built in stabilization though, which allowed me to just barely keep the dog sharp while letting the water go slightly soft - with no tripod.]
All these fires combined with depleted water resources this summer is a scary recipe. Let's hope we can clear to conserve our resources and care for our forests and ecosystem ... as I have a bad feeling this won't be our last summer dealing with this combo.
A massive thank you to our firefighters, both local and those that have traveled here to help.
