Cody

This week's assignment for my B&W group was "high key."  I've got a white dog; piece of cake, right? Not so much. Turns out, Cody is exceedingly camera-shy, so getting a shot that comes close to looking like what I see when I'm not holding a camera was tough. In the end, I got my shot, and Cody got a snack. Good boy!

Agave II

I'm moving this week.  The new place is closer to most of my favorite photo spots, but I'll miss the little agave garden a few doors down from my old place.

Yes a lot of subjects. :) Almost all of them have fatal flaws or lack a nice gesture in a good composition. This one really works.

Amazing shots; wildlife in action.
 
I saw Wild Kingdom in action yesterday: killer whales preying upon California sea lions. Classified as Biggs transient orcas, these individuals are well known (CA51) for terrorizing other marine mammals along the Southern California coast. “Biggs transients” are one of four distinct populations ...

Short but Sweet.
Went to Joshua Tree National Park last night with +Phillip Colla to shoot the eclipse and a few other things. This is this morning's moon at total eclipse -- the shortest total eclipse of the century. Using a star tracker on my tripod helped to get a much sharper image than I could have obtained otherwise.

SkyFlower

This is from an outing last spring with astro-photo guru +Phillip Colla; we played around with numerous lighting techniques on these windmills for hours, and ended up with several that were quite beautiful.  

Never stop experimenting.
