Morning Madness
Echo Lake, CA, US

Somedays my mornings feel just like this picture. They're pretty, but full of 1000s of beginning ideas for the day. Which to look at, which to start with, which seeds to let grow for the day?

I Await Your Return
Helsinki, FI

I love it when two competing modes of transport come together in an image. People have been amazing at coming up with ways to transport themselves across different surface types and we easily switch between different modes depending on the encountered terrain.

Yosemite Valley
Yosemite, CA, US

There is nothing more majestic than the view of Yosemite Valley at the close of the day. This famous granite lined valley is a simply breathtaking view of nature at its best.

I've sent the first batch of collectible postcards off this morning to my Patreon backers. It's of an otherwise unreleased photo of Yosemite valley that I'm very proud of. If you're one of my backers, thank you so much for your support and I hope you enjoy your gift! If you want to get in on the next round, please head on over to my Patreon page at http://patreon.com/hardaker and join the fun.

Hi +Steph StephanieSteph, thanks for asking!

The Patreon website is a place that people can support artists in their work and receive gifts, rewards and endless thanks in return :-) You can check out the details of my program at http://patreon.com/hardaker if you're interested. One of the things I'm offering is collector edition postcards with a hand-written note on them, and the above image is the back of the first one that I produced and have just sent out to people that have backed my work last month.

Tower Defense
Bohus Fortress, SE

The Bohus Fortress was constructed in 1308 in what was then Norway. The land it sits on later became Sweden in 1658. This beautiful tower still stands proud, even after 14 sieges were waged against it.

Story
Tagline
A photographer trapped in the body of a computer scientist. With a LOT of hobbies (amateur (ham) radio (WS6Z), geocaching, programming, and typing things in parentheses)
Introduction
Hi.  My name is Wes Hardaker, and I'm addicted to light.

I'm the owner and photographer of Captured On Earth Photography.  I both photograph constantly and teach photography as well.  If you want free photography tips, funny stories and trip ideas, please consider signing up for my weekly-ish newsletter or browsing some of my public posts on my news and blog site. And of course!  Feel free to browse my Google+ post history, or visit my galleries on Captured On Earth (including my most recent pictures) to see the pictures I've taken.  I generally post a few pictures a week to G+, so if you like my work please circle me and enjoy my work!  My newsletter contains more expansive stories behind some of the pictures than I can post on G+.

I'm also a teacher and mentor in The Arcanum, which is the most amazing place to teach and learn about photography.  It's an amazing institution of super talented photographers.

I've also been heavily involved with open source software for ages and will continue to be for ages in the future.  I have a second desk-job time working on and promoting secured internet standards. I only wish I had endless time to accomplish all the good things I want to do that I can't find anyone to pay me to implement.

My public posts are generally photography related.  If you're interested in any of my other hobbies (ham radio, geocaching and general geekiness), please let me know so I can put you in a circle that will let you see see my posts about those topics.
