Clearing summer storm. Grand Canyon National Park, July 2016.
After a few hours of scouting, looking for various compositions, between Mather- and Yavapai points I could see a storm building up to the west. Fortunately, I had brought both a rain-jacket and a raincover for my camera, so I could just enjoy the show. An hour passed by with intense rain and lightning. I was having the time of my life capturing it all. As the storm passed further east, skies started to clear and this wonderful doubble rainbow appeared. Hope you like it, have a super sunday!

Beautiful Demoiselle

My previous post of a male Beautiful Demoiselle showed an immature specimen which hadn't developed the mature blue coloration of the wings as is the case with this specimen, taken recently on my local patch whilst searching for Marbled Whites.

Sometimes I wish I had 5 cameras... Ok all the time I wish that, but for good reason! Reason being, on nights like this one there is SO much going on that 1 camera just can't cover everything. Its like sitting down on the toilet and finding just 1 square left... It's just not enough... Sorry for the representation but my analogy well is running dry (wait for it). Anyway, storm chasers unite!

Here is a campestral.

Well she is is sad. Why is she sad? Because she wandered all the way into the forest following her #PokemonGo app and then lost service... Right before she was going to capture a legendary #Mewtwo ... So while she was in this state I decided to create this moment and share it with all of you! Looks like this whole Pokemon craze is producing some great results already!!

Here is a mood.

Hummingbird Diaries (81)

Another flying jewel beauty unfolds. The desert garden flowering season was over. They are more scattered and harder to find which means more patience needed and that's what I don't have due to this scorching hot weather. Have a wonderful weekend, G+ friends! :-)

Haveli Sujan Singh
Haveli Sujan Singh is a haveli located in the congested market of Bhabra Bazar Rawalpindi, Punjab, Pakistan. It was built by a wealthy merchant and businessman of Rawalpindi, Rai Bahadur Sujan Singh. In the various courtyards dancing peacocks were kept to dance during the evening and a pet tiger was kept which regularly walked the corridors. Musicians were given residence in the haveli who played during the evenings. An Aqueduct connected to 30 lines provided a reliable water supply. The mansion had two main wings connected by a bridge at the fourth floor. The mansion also served as a museum for the family of Rai Sujan Singh. It contained family pictures, antiques, Victorian furniture, China and the family silverware.After partition of India in 1947, the mansion run in to ruin. Currently it has been given to national college of arts Rawalpindi.

How to share
You cannot share directly with the HQSP Post of the Day page. The photos shared at this page are chosen by the HQSP Gold team. You share with a theme page, we do the rest!


HOW DOES THE HQSP SYSTEM WORK?

There are two ways to participate in the HQSP system.

1. By sharing in the HQSP Community

2. By sharing with the hash tag of a HQSP theme page

In this way you end up at the base of the HQSP pyramid. 


THE PYRAMID

The pyramid has 5 levels:

✔ The base is formed by you, the photographer. You post your photo either by posting your photo with a hash tag of a theme page, or by posting a photo in the HQSP Community. You can also reshare a post you posted public in the community.

✔ Level two is the theme pages. Your photo is shared on the theme page if it is good enough and fits the theme. The theme pages have a group of managers who curate and pick the photos.

✔ Level three is HQSP Promotions. The managers of the theme pages select the best photos shared on the theme pages and take them up to level three.

✔ Level four is HQSP Gold. The HQSP Gold team pics the best form HQSP Promotion on a daily basis. The photographers who make it this far are really good and are shared in the monthly Winners Circle. One post will then be selected by the daily curator to feature on this page as our post of the day.

✔ Level five is HQSP Weekly Winner. Every week there are three winners. The HQSP team nominates 20 photos from HQSP Gold for the vote. The sharers and public can then vote to decide who has shared the best photo of the week. The winners are displayed on the website, in the HQSP Community and on several HQSP pages.

 

HOW DO YOU BECOME A GOLD CONTRIBUTOR?

You can become a gold contributor if you keep the next points in mind when you take a photo:

✔ Is the subject interesting? Almost anything can become interesting by choosing the right perspective, composition and framing.

✔ Playing with DOF, exposure and light/shadow is elementary.

✔ Is it program shooting or manual settings?

✔ Is the photo sharp where it is meant to be sharp?

✔ Is the overall image appealing?

✔ Is the post processing right? Contrast, colour (accuracy and saturation), and brightness.

✔ Is your logo or copyright sign not too dominant

✔ Is your photo not in violation of the HQSP rules  


HQSP RULES

✔ We cannot share your posts if you do not circle us.  This is very important. 

✔ Please do not tag our names or page names in your image. A tagged image will be ignored.

✔ Please do not share albums, share only single images, albums will be ignored.

✔ Please keep your watermarks reasonably sized and positioned.

✔ Please do not share Gif’s, for example the result of Auto Awesome by Google. So no moving photos.

✔ Please do not share photos with text in any form other than logos and copyright a signs. We do not support messages in foreign languages without knowing what we share, that is why we don’t share any messages at all.

✔ Share a maximum of one photo per category/theme per day.  

✔ HQSP can only share photos shared by a person, a photographer. It can be via page, but the name of the photographer should be in the name of the page. We don't share photos posted by accounts that are: a company, a website, a club, etc.

✔ Above all, share your own work with us, have fun and interact with us.

Note! HQSP reserves the right to choose which photos are shared.


RULES FOR HQSP VOTE:

✔ A photographer cannot vote for their own photo

✔ A photographer cannot vote with other accounts/pages he or she owns/curates

✔ A photographer should not call others to vote for his photo alone. Inviting people to vote in general, is OK.

✔ Share, promote, get involved and have fun!
