Beautiful photos of a magical place. One note - I believe it's a lionfish [not tiger fish] in your Pigeon Key photo. An Invasive species causing serious problems in Florida and the Caribbean.

Underneath Manhattan, underneath the smaller of the two City Hall buildings, lies the Old City Hall subway station which has not been in use since 1945 following the creation of two adjoining, more modern stations. The New York Transit Museum offers tours of the space and it's an incredible opportunity to get photos of one of NY's most marvelous once-public spaces. The ceiling features Guastavino tile.

I absolutely love the depth of field that you can capture with the +Samsung Camera 16-50mm f/2.0 lens on the NX1 camera. It was so fun to test it out in +Scottsdale, AZ too, where even the things that can hurt you look pretty from the right angle!

This was created at +Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts Troon North property.

The Atacama Desert in Northern Chile is the driest on earth and it's also one of the best places in the world for stargazing. This shot was taken at Alto Atacama where they have their own stargazing facility, separated from the resort's main buildings. Also in the area: ALMA, which I visited the next day. All together, it's an incredible place to indulge in your love of astronomy.

Captured with my +Samsung Camera NX1. ISO 800 for 30 seconds at f/5.0. #imagelogger #OnlyInSouthAmerica Tripod: +Vanguard #VanguardPro

Nighttime in the desert. At +Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts +Scottsdale, AZ property. This was taken from my balcony looking toward their adult pool and Pinnacle Peak. A better shot would have been possible if I'd wandered farther away from all those lights at the pool, but after learning the hard lesson once, I don't wander around in the dark in Arizona anymore. Hence shooting from the safety of my balcony!

Shot with +Samsung Camera NX1 @ 800 ISO with the 16-50mm lens.
