    Title or Location: Iowa State Capital Building
    Ironically enough, as it doesn't seem to be the case for most people out here, I'm actually a transplant from Arizona - my wife being an Iowa native. We'll, we've had quite a few visitors come from Arizona, which has meant checkout out a lot of the local landmarks. We took a tour of the capital building - and as a huge history nerd, the building immediately spoke to me. I've seen a lot of really neat buildings (D.C. has some of my favorite spaces in the country), but I was impressed with how uni

    For days I walked by this flower patch observing an amazing flurry of bee business around the cone flowers. Today I felt the need to document these hard working determined pollinators.

    Title or Location: Cannon Beach Oregon
    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    This photo captures a serene moment in my front yard, where I lay on a blanket beneath a amazing tree. The weather was ideal, prompting me to grab my micro lens and focus on this exquisite dandelion.

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
