Rundle’s Respite • Inspired after printing/framing two vertical night sky images, I felt a third one would really balance out the set. I remembered I had a vertical composition of my beautiful night under the stars in Banff. So I waded through Lightroom and found this one. • Camera nerd stuff: • This is 9 images stacked for noise correction. Shot with the a7riii and LAOWA 15mm f2 @ 15s | f2.8 | ISO 3200 • #jaw_dropping_shots #nightscaper #earth_reflect #gramsofearth #nightimages #longexpolite #longexpohunter #weownthenight_ig #lazyshutters #amazing_longexpo #night_shooterz #nightskape #milkywaychasers #nightsky #milkywaycake #astrosprout #fantastic_universe #starrynight #sonyalphaphotos #banffnationalpark #banffcanada #nightscaper #lightchasersworld #natgeo100contest

Despite the heat, on friday evening I went out to Anza Borrego with @chrismaustphotos. Originally the plan was to drive up Fish Creek Wash and then hike to the wind caves and photograph that under the milky way. However when we got there, we couldn't find a good composition with the caves despite spending quite a bit of time exploring both inside and out. So instead we switched gears and decided to focus on the nearby Elephant Knees butte that was due south and aligned perfectly with the core. In case you were wondering, the high was 110 in Borrego Springs. When we started the hike it was 106F and I can't say I recommend doing that. But it wasn't as bad as I feared. We still guzzled a ton of water even though the hike was very short. This is a tracked pano. I used an iOptron skytracker pro and made a 4x1 pano for the sky with all frames at ISO 1600, 55mm, f/2.8, 30s, LENR on. The foreground is a separate shot taken at ISO 100, 55mm, f/8, 30s taken about an hour before at the end of blue hour #anzaborrego #fishcreekwash #ocotillowells #borregosprings #elephantknees #nightscapes #milkywaychasers #hikesd #hikesandiego #lightchasersworld

This was a really tough shot since there were two of us trying to get basically the same shot at the same time (shot with @StephenBayPhoto). This tree looks huge in photos, but it is actually just a few feet tall. We had to squeeze together to get the composition lined up just right. Most people shoot this with the MW to the outside, but we shot it from the inside, so that made it even tougher. However, I think it was worth the effort and luckily we are good friends, so no photographers were harmed or injured in the taking of this photo! 📸😜🤪 Composite. Foreground. 16mm ISO 3200 f5.0 60 sec.

Sunset Silhouette. Surprisingly, after decades of living in San Diego, tonight was the first time I went to the Torrey Pines Gliderport. With a bit of haze in the sky, we were hoping for a green flash. Instead, Mother Nature gave us some amazing colors, just as the sun was preparing to set! Enjoy!

The beauty of Joshua Tree NP last a full 24 hours every day. •••••• Thanks to Stephen @stephenbayphoto for the beautiful night. ——-- The Milky Way is now visible at night in the hours just before dawn. I've made a few trips out to photograph it since the new year but had no luck due to clouds obscuring the view. So I thought I'd share this image taken last summer at Joshua Tree. One of the things that I love about Joshua Tree is that there are so many different compositions available with the giant rocks located all over the park. This was shot on a trip with @highdynamicsphoto. He had scouted this area on a prior visit and wanted to return to shoot the MW here. So I just tagged along without doing much planning myself. I've shot quite a few times with Chris and one thing that surprises me is that our compositions and final images are often totally different even when we are shooting the same subject. This is a stacked pano. 4x1 for the sky @25mm f/2.8, 13s, ISO 1600. The foreground is 6 stacked shots @25mm f/3.5, 60s, ISO 1600. #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #nationalparkgeek #milkyway #nightscapes #milkywaychasers #lightchasersworld #astrophotography #jumborocks #jumborockscampground ——— #nationalparkgeek #jtnpa

Walker Canyon Poppy Field. We went very early on Tues morning and the poppies were still closed. As we headed down the hillside the poppies began to open. It was stunning. There was only a few people there when we started and when we left a few hours later it was crazy, like Disneyland. . . . . . #landscapephotohub #lifeofadventure #master_gallery #color_of_nature #got_greatshots #stayandwander #magicshots #instagoodmyphoto #adventurethatislife #landscapelover #lanscape_features_ #bestplanetpic #pixel_ig #agameoftones #landscapecaptures #SOsandiego #MySDPhoto #sandiegolife #_photooftheday_ #WAYSanDiego #sandiego.city #caliinviteyou #lightchasersworld #la_jolla_originals #sunset #california4fun #mysdphoto #sandiego #ig_skylovers #california_living #bestphotolandscape

Rockstar. Mushroom Rock is located at Hila'an Beach in Guam. These unique rocks are the result of clashing lava spews when the island of Guam was formed as well. While they are just rocks, the geology is interesting, and topped by bits of vegetation. We hiked out along the beach trail earlier in the day to scout this location, after which we decided to return during sunset to take photographs. The trail includes uneven & sharp volcanic rock, so careful footing is important to ensure you don't slip or get cut. As we prepared to leave from the day hike, we saw a couple walk through a clearing. Intrigued, we followed them. Unbeknownst to us, there was a much easier, flat & grassy access trail! Guess which trail we used that evening! 😊 ISO 100 24 - 120 mm f/22 1/15 second

Sunset surfing at the La Jolla tide pools. #3 in my tide pool series from Friday. I love to try and find as many unique compositions during a shoot. At the tide pools their is so much diversity...surfers, birds, rocks, colors, textures, reflections...the compositions are endless. . . . . . #landscapephotohub #lifeofadventure #master_gallery #color_of_nature #got_greatshots #stayandwander #instagood #magicshots #instagoodmyphoto #adventurethatislife #landscapephotography #landscapelover #discoveryfield #pixel_ig #agameoftones #landscapecaptures #SOsandiego #MySDPhoto #sandiegolife #_photooftheday_ #WAYSanDiego #sandiego.city #caliinviteyou #lightchasersworld #la_jolla_originals #sunset #california4fun #mysdphoto1 #sandiego

Captured this on a recent trip to Guam to visit my newlywed daughter. This small cairn, found while hiking, is rather cool since it was built from washed up coral and placed on a natural lava rock shelf. One might think lava eroded by the sea would be smooth, but no, the surfaces are quite rough and sharp, so I tried to emphasize those textures while post-processing in black+white. #lightchasersworld #Explore84 #StillLifeSunday #MonochromeMonday #TexturalTuesday #cairn #coral #lava #guam Technical Details - this is a single color image, converted to monochrome, toned and processed in Lightroom + Photoshop. Fuji X100S, 23mm, f/8, 1/100th, ISO 200. Handheld, no friggin' tripod needed.

Amethel Parel-Sewell at Mt. Helix. • Photo by @amethel_lightchaser chosen by @lifeofka1 • From Amethel on this photo: As photographers, we'll travel for hours or days to distant lands to experience amazing scenes, landscapes, or special events in nature or in the deep skies. This afternoon, we only had to walk outside to our front yard. For the first time ever, we saw an epic double rainbow over our neighborhood. The main rainbow was the most bright, saturated rainbow I've ever seen in my life, and it towered over the Mt. Helix cross. What an awesome sight to take in. • Single Exposure Canon 5D Mk IV 24-105mm f4 L II @ 78mm 1/250s @ f9 500 ISO #lightchasersworld #rainbow #mthelix #lamesa

I love capturing candid moments. I saw the light hit @mommy_needs_privacy face and I knew I had to snap a pic. I love catching people in their natural state, unaware of the camera, they are truly themselves...and that’s just beautiful. . . . #candid #candidmoments #candid😎 #candid_pic #candid_photography #candid_captures #candidshot📷 #candidpose #candid#candidlife #candidphotographer #candidmoment #candidshots #candidphoto #lunenburgmama #igcentralmass #cameramama #dearphotographer #lightinspired #our_everyday_moments #lightchaser #lightchasersworld #lightchasermagicmaker #chaseroflight #chasersofthelight

Gonna break up the slew of sports photos with some nature-y landscape fun stuff. This is from Mt. Helix. The first time I did this photo, I was just goin for groovy light trails and sunset clouds. And then people showed up in in the corner. So I did it again, but with the people better composed. This is 3-4 photos smooshed together for one crispy one. Do enjoy :) #mthelix #sandiego #lighttrails #lightchasersworld #canon

Cheryl Herrera at Lake Louise in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies (Albert, Canada) • Photo by @csaguros chosen by @lifeofka1 • From Herrera about this photo: The Canadian Rockies hold a special place in my heart. It's one of the most beautiful places in the world. During the summer the days are long. I took this photo at 10:00pm during sunset when the crowds disappeared and the water was absolutely still. I also remember the pesky mosquitoes were out in full force! But that didn't deter me from enjoying the pink clouds and the beautiful glacial Lake Louise reflecting Mount Victoria and Victoria Glacier in the background. Most of my photos for this location were in landscape orientation and at the last minute I switched my camera to a vertical orientation. I only had a few frames in vertical and I ended up liking those the most. • Sony A7 / FE 16-35mm F4 @ 16mm / ISO 100 / f/13 / 8/10s #lightchasersworld #explore84 #mountains #lake #sky #canadianrockies #banffnationalpark

Reach there with a cloudy rainy weather.. and feeling sad .. but when decided to come back the sky little lit up.. and we saw rainbow.. it’s little tricky to shoot.. cause it’s happened too fast.. not able to change lenses.. not adding my cpl .. and just shoot madly.. cause duration of full rainbow was very less.. only took 5-7 shots • ISO 100 / F13 / .40 sec / D810 14-24 nikon • #nature_perfection #bestnatureshots #nature_sultans #world_bestsky #sky_brilliance #majestic_earth #sky_captures #globalcapture #special_shots #nature_brilliance #majestic_earth_ #yosemitenationalpark #lightchasersworld

Adam Sarasin at Windansea Beach • Photo by @adamsarasinphotography chosen by @lifeofka1 • Tag #lightchasersworld to be featured or post on Facebook.com/groups/lightchasers • From Sarasin about this image: After being away from behind the viewfinder too long, it was nice to meet up with some friends to shoot the San Diego beaches. I was really drawn to the way the water was cascading down this rock feature and was excited to see what my camera could capture. This is a blend of two shots. While I liked the foreground of one shot a lot, I really liked the splash and backlit wave in the background of another shot a few seconds later. So I thought, why not both? This was shot at Windansea Beach in La Jolla, CA. • a7rIII | 1/3s | f/13 | ISO 50 • #beachlife #naturephoto #landscape_captures #awesome_earthpix #natureaddict #rsa_rural #awesomeearth #nature_wizards #gottalove_a_ #igerssandiego #sandiego_ca #mysdphoto #allthingssd #sandiegoliving #sonyimages #sonyalpha #sonyalphasclub #sonyphotogallery #lightchasers #splendid_exposure

Reflection. Hospitals Reef may be one of the most interesting spots to photograph in San Diego. With the changing sky, tide and tidepools, you never know what you'll see. The area is nicknamed Potholes, due to the many tidepool craters. If you look closely, you can find sea creatures living in them. The last few times I came here, I didn't find any creative inspiration. But last night, I arrived early & had a leisurely stroll, looking for interesting shots. And by doing so, the reflection of the blue, pink & golden clouds in the tidepools caught my eye. Most of my photographs have been horizontal. But my photography New Year's resolution is to try new things. And for that reason, this photo was shot vertically. I do like how this allows more room for foreground, mid-ground, and background interest. Enjoy! ISO 100 20 mm f/ 22 1/15 second 3 shots bracketed +/- 2 stops

Another look at frozen Abraham Lake & the big crack in the ice! This time it’s HDR! Not the shot we @sonyalphagallery went there to get (turn left for the other mountain) but hey! I chase the light not the shadows! And with @sony_a7riii & my @sony 24-70mm GM lens, & Rachel’s @slikusa tripod, I can make any shot I want!

On Point. The 500-foot One America Plaza skyscraper is perhaps one of the most iconic architectural buildings in San Diego. Shaped like an obelisk, the top of the building resembles the end of a Phillips head screwdriver. In pursuit of an interesting Super Blood Wolf Moon photo, I went out armed with 2 cameras, both on tripods. Due to the high elevation of the moon, one of the cameras had a 50 mm lens to cover as much sky as possible. The other camera had a 28-300 mm lens to zoom in on the details of the moon. This was my first time juggling 2 cameras, and it took me a while to get into the rhythm of working with them. While we hoped for clear skies, the entire region had a thick cloud layer all day. Fortunately, the moon peeked out periodically once the lunar eclipse started. And right after the start of the red moon eclipse, storm clouds moved in, and the moon was no longer visible. This, incidentally, was my final shot of the moon. As the next Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse visible in the Americas won't be until 2021. So, this photo will have to tide us over until then! Enjoy!

It was an absolute blast to teach the students and see them light up with excitement. In one session (see video), after the students worked though a shot with a demo by @amethel_lightchaser and saw it on the screen, they exclaimed, “Whoa . . . magical!” These “A-ha” moments show them their potential when they learn their craft and use their creativity. These moments made the intense effort worthwhile. #photo360sandiego #lightchasersworld

Magical Moments We had the thrill of giving a LIGHT CHASERS workshop on light painting at the Photo360 Conference at San Diego City College. 200 lucky high school students from San Diego County were chosen to have an immersive experience with the Photography Department to learn the craft, including darkroom techniques, portraiture, macro photography, portfolio development, and light painting. A huge thanks to our Light Chasers team for working together to make the workshop a great experience for the students. In very short order, we developed the workshop outline, assembled toolkits, created a tips sheet, and figured out our lighting routines, among many other technical and logistical issues. It was totally exhausting, yet a blast to teach the students and see them light up with excitement. In one session, after the students worked though a shot and saw it on the screen, they exclaimed, “Whoa . . . magical!” These “A-ha” moments show them their potential when they learn their craft and use their creativity.

Sherbet Sunset • My first sunset shoot of the new year definitely did not disappoint! This was my first time at Tourmaline beach and I was overwhelmed with all of the compositional possibilities. The sky exploded with color as I was changing locations and I had to hurry up and make sense of the chaos of the rocks and tide pools. • Shoutout to @nickpagephotography as I just purchased his Mastering Luminosity Masks tutorial series and watched it last night. Thanks to the videos, I was able to exposure blend this scene with really high dynamic range and burn/dodge with way more precision than I have ever been able to before. • Exposure blend of three images with shutter speeds between 1 and 4 seconds.

Merry Christmas from San Diego! • The tide and surf were really high Saturday morning at Windansea beach. I thought I had missed that back curling wave and was very happy to find out I hadn’t. Every year this surf shack takes a beating but it is always restored with the help of volunteers. A testament to the spirit of giving. • • • • #main_vision #landscape_captures #awesome_earthpix #natureaddict #awesomeearth #nature_wizards #gottalove_a_ #roamtheplanet #travelphotography #visualoflife #beachlife #artofvisuals #flashesofdelight #thecreative #igerssandiego #sandiego_ca #mysdphoto #allthingssd #sandiegoliving #waveporn #wavephotography #christmas🎄 #merryandbright #christmasmagic #SanDiegoGram #lightchasersworld

Holy Moon. On this full December moon evening, as we approach Christmas, we met up with a group of fellow photographers to see the moonrise. Our goal was to capture the moon coming up behind the University of San Diego's Immaculata Catholic Church. Using the app PlanIt, developed by our friend, we planned out when & where to be for perfect alignment. Anticipation was high, and the mood was joyous, as the moon rose exactly as hoped! In case you were wondering, that is the Virgin Mary mounted atop the dome. She stands 10 feet 8 inches tall, and weighs approximately 8500 pounds! May your holiday season be bright. And may your 2019 be full of joy! 2 shots blended ISO 100 28 - 300 mm, cropped f / 8 6 seconds; 1/4 second #sandiegofullmoon #sandiegomoonrise #lightchasersworld

. . . Alignment Wizardary . . Shot at 600mm with the @sigmaphoto 150-600 from about 6 miles away. . @itwasthelight gets all the credit for this brainchild of this crazy composition. 🤘🏼🙏🏻 . . Known him about 1.5 years and learned quickly when he’s comes up with a plan for something lining up or predicting weather, not to question him. . . Got the text this would line up early AM and it’s about 1/2 hour from my house. I was tired and lazy but knew if he was amped it would be epic. . . He knows me well enough to not mention the fact this required a mile hike cause I would of bailed, 😂 . . He nailed the exact spot to shoot from on the first try and whammo! . . I was looking through my camera in awe of what it was seeing that I couldn’t see with my eyes. . . . Although not super crisp and clean, from 6+ miles away, I’m not complaining 😊 . . Thankful to have such rad and creative friends that share this stuff. . . . #fullmoon #moonset #sandiego #visitsandiego #sosandiego #theresandiego #sandiegogram #earthpix #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #sigmaphoto #sigma150600 #photopills #photopillsmoon #10news #cabrillonationalmonument #lightchasersworld #viewsandiego

Newport pier - Newport Beach, CA. . . Ventured out to Newport Beach last night to photograph the ULA Delta IV heavy launch, hoping to capture an image or two after the failed attempt the day before. Unfortunately, last night’s launch was aborted too, so I ended up hanging around to get some long exposures of the pier at night, as I haven’t done so in a few years. . . www.julianjolliffe.com . . . . . #landscapephotography #nightscape #canonusa #hikeinlandempire #visualsofearth #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #longexpo_addiction #earthpix #earthfocus #liveoutdoors #awesome_earth #igtraveler #collectivelycreate #beautifuldestination #lightchasersworld #pocket_allnature #abc7eyewitness #worldtravels #acreativevisual #californialiving #depthsofearth #cbsla #peoplewhoadventure #instacalifornia #newportbeach #allbeauty_addiction #landscape_perfection #visual_heaven #influenceartists

I went out to shoot one evening and the skies were cloudy and dull at home. I took a chance and came to this location hoping for a little color. I was blown away when the sun started to dip and provide just enough color to the foreground. Minutes before, a huge wave had crashed right in front of me leaving the perfect surface to reflect upon. ——— Gear List ——— Camera: @canonusa 6D Lens: @canonusa 16-35mm f/2.8L III Filter: @breakthrough.photography Tripod: @benrousa App: @photopills Processing: @lightroom ———
