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

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

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. Shot with the a7riii 16-24 f4 @ 17mm | f10 | ISO 100. . . . . . #naturephoto #main_vision #landscape_captures #awesome_earthpix #natureaddict #awesomeearth #nature_wizards #skyporn #sunsetsniper #skylovers #sunrise_and_sunsets #sunsets #sunset_hub #sunsetlovers #instasunsets #all_sunsets #sunsethunter #igerssandiego #sandiego_ca #mysdphoto #allthingssd #sandiegoliving #sonyimages #sonyalpha #sonyalphasclub #sonyphotogallery #lightchasersworld #sdsonygang #splendid_reflections #splendid_earth

This 350’ long serpent with the head of a dragon and tail of a rattle snake, which seems to be swimming through the desert of Southern California, was designed and constructed by Ricardo Breceda, who found inspiration from fossils that were once found here. A different side of the beast seems to come alive at night🌌🔭

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

Fisherman’s View • Drawn to the beautiful light in this scene I set up my composition. I saw this boat approaching and was hoping to frame it centered. Only one problem, I had it zoomed to 200mm and had a 10s timer on to minimize any camera shake (even on a tripod longer focal lengths can take some time to settle). Clicked the shutter and counted down...Nailed it! • When I looked closer at this image I could see the fisherman was taking in the scene much like I was. Here we were, two complete strangers separated by hundreds of yards of water, experiencing the same moment. Serenity. • EXIF: a7riii + Sony 70-200 f4 @ 1/10s | f/11 | ISO 100 • • • • #sdsonygang #lightchasersworld #splendid_nature #splendid_earthpix #monocounty #splendid_earth #reflectiongram #reflection_perfection #sonya7riii #nature_wizards #californiaholics #californiadreaming #catchandrelease #lakefishing #awesome_earth

Went for dinner and a stroll at Clark Quay. I knew I had to get a shot from above to capture the umbrellas and the lights. After a little hunting, we found our way to the 5th floor of a parking lot to get this shot. Totally worth it !

The last sunset shot of the year. It’s been a photo learning experience in 2018 and much more to learn in 2019.

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

. . . 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 😊 . .

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

Thankful. During this Thanksgiving week, may you be surrounded by the love and support of family & friends. May you be blessed with health, and your life be filled with joy. Happy Thanksgiving! During this year, I've been inspired to expand my photographic repertoire. Still Life has been one of the disciplines I've been working on, and I've found it incredibly challenging. Every single element, and its placement, is important to the composition. I agonize for days & weeks as to whether the composition can be improved. So, for for this control freak with OCD, it may be the perfect type of photography! Enjoy!

Dia de Los Muertes Beauty. Captured this last weekend during the Dia de los Muertes celebration at San Diego's historic Old Town. While many people took photos of this lovely young lady, I was drawn to her joyous spirit. She told me that she was extremely shy & that this costume was out of her comfort zone. Many times, she reached up with her right hand to cover her face, laughing at all the attention she was getting. And then, just as she adjusted her scarf, I got this moment with her arm, perfectly framing her face, as if in a portrait. May all of your friends and family have had safe & joyous journeys, as we celebrate them for all the many ways they have changed us. Enjoy! ISO 125 80 - 200 mm f / 2.8 1/400 second

First Light • Standing on the shores of Silver Lake with rolling fog on the lake, beautiful reflections, golden aspens surrounding me, I was overwhelmed. Do I shoot wide? Should I use my 55 prime? Time to bust out the 70-200? Stick to the plan. • My plan in these situations is usually to start wide and work my way in. Pulled out the 16-35, got my hero shot. Next grabbed the 55, got some similar shots, but gives the mountain more prominence (at the expense of losing those reflections). Next is my favorite part, the 70-200. Now I can relax a bit and start picking out details in the scene. • In the distance I saw how the morning light was stretching along the side of Carson Peak. To the bottom right the light just kisses the top of Horse Tail Falls which is just a trickle this time of year. . . . . . #sdsonygang #sonyphotogallery #sonyalphasclub #awesome_earthpix #sonyimages #natureaddict #sonyalpha #californialove #californiadreaming #jj_california #waterfall #californiacoast #californiaholics #waterfall #main_vision #rsa_rural #awesomeearth #keepexploring #hiking #landscape_captures #naturephoto #wanderlust #neature #instagood #keepitwild #chasingwaterfalls #splendid_earthpix #splendid_nature #lightchasersworld

Sunset Reflections. Sometimes, you just have to take a chance, even if you don't want to. Tonight, I wasn't sure whether I wanted to photograph the sunset. So, I reached out a friend to see if she was going to be at one of our favorite locations. And so, if only to see a smiling face & get a hug, I headed out. With only a few clouds, we weren't sure whether Mother Nature would do her magic. And then suddenly, she did! While both of us are typically solitary shooters, I'm incredibly happy that my friend inspired me to meet up with her, and for her friendship. And that both of us had a great time together!

Sunset Explosion. Sunflowers are the only flowers with flower in its name. Its scientific name is "Helianthus". Translated from the Greek language, "helia" is sun, and ""anthus" is flower. Fittingly, sunflowers follow the movement of the sun across the sky from east to west. They symbolize faith, loyalty & adoration. With an off coast storm building in Mexico over the next few days, we were lucky to have clouds spill over into Southern California, gifting us this beautiful explosion of colors shortly after sunset.

Religious Beast. This last week, the 11th Annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk was held. With photowalks in almost 1000 cities around the globe, photographers are encouraged to take & share photos. In San Diego, it was coincidentally the same weekend as the Maker Faire in the beautiful Balboa Park. With many exhibits & demonstrations, there were many opportunities to have fun. "Beast de Religiosa: Zap" is a walking robot sculpture of a praying mantis. Constructed of lightweight metal, LED lights light it & flames can shoot out from its tentacles. With a long shutter speed, I was able to capture the headlights & taillights of cars traveling along the roadway. And fortunately, a car stopped behind the fountain & put its emergency blinkers on, giving the water a beautiful glow. May you enjoy this capture as much as I had in chasing it! 😊 ISO 100 35 - 70 mm 2.8 vintage push-pull lens f / 18 15 seconds 3 shots bracketed +/- 2 stops #lightchasersworld

The Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor is a 12 mile stretch of the most beautiful coast in Oregon just above the California border. Lone Ranch State Park is one of the less crowded stops along the stretch of the coast Highway. In the park, if you to go to the right, you walk some of the Pacific trail and climb to the overlook. Go to the left and walk the beach. At the south side of the overlook, it looked like the Milky Way rose from the rocks. It was beautiful and already posted. But on the north side of the overlook you can see the beautiful bay and the rugged northern coastline with lights from several coastal towns and car trails. Looking out at the scene I could see Polaris sitting above the rock peninsula. That was a sight. To stand there, admiring the stars and night sky, listening to the sounds of the crashing waves. That is what it’s all about for me. It’s why I love doing star trails. • • • • #dametraveler #rsa_ladies #D750 #withmytamron #stars #startrail #StarTrails #startrailchasers #chasingstars #startrailsphotography #Night #lightChasersWorld #NIGHTSCAPER #WeOwnTheNight #5billionstarhotel #natgeospace #nightsky #nightpics #Nocturnal_Visionaries #universetoday #night_shots #bestnightpics #night_excl #startrailphotography #starrynight #StarGazing #Starscape #lazyshutters #nights_dreamworld #lovethesky

Primate Portrait. As a portrait photographer, I usually make landscape or still life photographs for fun. This last weekend, I went to the world famous San Diego Zoo with a friend, and I decided to challenge myself to take a portrait. Believe me, it's a lot harder to do when you can't pose your subject! This monkey had his back to me. And then suddenly, he turned and glanced at me, if only for the slightest of moments. I like the tilt of the head of this 'lil fellow, almost as is he were flirting with me. Lucky me, right? Enjoy!

Priyanka Haldar in Oregon • Photo by @priyanka.haldar18 chosen by @stephenbayphoto • Tag #lightchasersworld to be featured or post on facebook.com/groups/lightchasers • From Priyanka about this image: • I have been chasing this shot since 2013 and finally after 5 years and two failed attempts all the conditions lined up perfectly for me. I guess photography is all about taking chances and one day it all falls in place and if it does not we just need to keep trying until it does. • This was shot from Rowena Crest in Oregon where every spring lupines and balsamroot put up a show on the hills. It was very windy that day so I was very worried about how to get the flowers in focus and avoid motion blur. Luckily we walked up the hill and found this location that was shielded by a ridge and was relatively calm. • I am so glad I made this trip. • Technical: Shot with Canon 5D Mark 4 and Canon 16-35 mm lens at 20 mm, ISO 1600, f22, this is a two exposure blend, one for the sky (1/60) and the other for the foreground(1/13) • Initial shadow, highlights adjustments in LR and then exposure blend in PS and some levels, saturation and curve adjustment • #lightchasersworld #oregon #rowenacrest #traveloregon #exploreoregon #pnw #columbiarivergorge #pnwonderland #wildflowers #oregonexplored #columbiagorge #flowers #landscape #pnwlife #landscape_lovers #columbiariver #flowersofinstagram

I love how the sunlight through the open door catches the motion of the smoke perfectly against the dark background. • May you enjoy this photo as much as we enjoyed scratching Cuba off our bucket list. • Nikon D750 28 - 300 mm (62mm) f 5.6 1/320 second • Processed in Lightroom • #lightchasersworld #cuba #vinales #cubancigars #marlboroman #bnwphoto #blackwhitephoto #tobacco #bwportrait #environmentalportrait #travelportraits #candidphotography #globaltrekker #globaltravel

Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway- Lava Hills We spent several days exploring the area from Bend around Mt. Bachelor and Cascade Lakes before coming back at night. Driving up the Scenic Byway from Bend, the pine trees on both sides of the road hid the some of the beautiful lakes and hiking trails. Then suddenly the trees on one side of the road stopped abruptly and there were mounds and mounds of lava rock, different sizes and shapes that formed lava hills. It was as if someone just cut out a swath of trees and pushed these rocks in their place… and geology speaking, that is sort of what happened! It was the middle of the week and no cars were driving up this road except us. The moon was behind the pine trees on the south side of the road so it didn’t wash out the stars as much as it did in the meadow. Filtered light still lit the lava rock hillside, so again, no need for any artificial light. So it was another perfect location for a #startrail!

Hiked near Mt. Rainier yesterday and even thought it was occluded by clouds for the most part, the clouds were dramatic and gave a life of its own to the scene. Mt. Rainier is present in this scene but hardly visible due to the clouds. I almost left before sunset (I hate driving among the mountains when it's dark) but as an afterthought, chose to wait into the blue hour to see if I could capture something dramatic. And I sure wasn't disappointed. As the winter approaches, I am sad that I will say goodbye to these parts of Mt. Rainier which will be closed as they will be covered under 30ft of snow.

The Hawaiian islands are one of my favorite places in the world. I'm going through my photo collection to purge and sort and came across this from 2010. I was on an adventure by myself, driving around the island of Maui. I can smell the water and hear the waves as I look back at this memory. #lightchasersworld #maui #roadtohana #hawaii #summer #epicsunset #landscapephotography #landscapelover #landscape_captures #landscapes #landscape_photography #pixel_ig #landscape_lovers #landscapecaptures #landscapeporn #getlost #landscapephotomag #ig_landscape #splendid_earth #optoutside #discoverearth #exploretheglobe #nakedplanet #places_wow #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily #earthofficial #earthescope #awesome_earthpix #beach

Sundays stuning sunset. I decided to shoot the rising moon this past Sunday from the Lake Hodges Pedestrian bridge. As an added treat, the clouds were amazing at sunset. Nikon D610, 16-35mm f4, at 16mm, 1/8 seconds, f11, iso 100.

Following up on my last post, here's another photo I made at the Wind Caves in Anza Borrego. We had just arrived (me and @chrismaustphotos), perhaps 30 minutes before sunset. As we were checking out the caves to see if the milky way would line up, I noticed that the sun was going to set in the center of one entrance. Chris went off to shoot a panorama but I decided to stay and work the sunset from inside. As the sun set, it lit up the entrance and inside of the cave with some glorious warm light. From what I understand, the caves were used as shelters by Native Americans. Imagine living out here and seeing this spectacular view daily! Shooting wise, it was challenging trying to prevent lens flare from totally overwhelming the scene. No way to eliminate it completely so I decided to incorporate in the composition (and I really like the effect). I shot a number of brackets where I used the thumb trick to block the sun and then removed the worst parts of the flare in post. The second photo in the series is a before picture. The last image is what the cave looked like from the outside. Let me know if you like these BTS shots and I can keep doing them. EXIF: sony a7r2, 16-35mm f/4, main shot at 1/3s, f/22, ISO 100, 16mm. A few other shots at f/11 and 1/13s.

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 ———
