Solitary windmill stands post over the recently harvested grain field at dawn. Bright highlights and long dark shadows show the rolling Colorado prairies bring out the terrain relief under the fluffy layers of monsoon cumulus clouds exacerbated by the massive smoke and ash from forest fires across the Western States.

Ubiquitous high power electric lines span many miles across the eastern Colorado prairies to bring electricity to the burgeoning populations and isolated farmsteads. Low angle post dawn sunlight creates dimensionality with long highlighted ridge lines and deep shadows.

Found an area of Colorado high prairie with rolling hills and infinite grain fields and used the post dawn light and shadows across the scene to develop the depth of the terrain. Monsoon moisture drawn off the Gulf of Baja and smoke from Western state forest fires help form the cumulus cloud banks.

Caught a fly having his breakfast at the center of an early morning sunflower. The field is just outside the north edge of Denver International Airport. Processed using Skylum Luminar 2018 RAW Develop and Golden Hour presets.

Found an east sloping field of ripening sunflowers in the earlier morning sun. Due to heavy forest fire overcast had to correct RAW files for red haze tint.

Three (near macro) of three in a zoom series of this bloom.

Playing around in home studio with no horizon set up. Goal was to garner a minimalist image.

The high contrast and razor sharp edges of LoDo (LOwer DOwntown) buildings and their shadows caught my eye while walking to Coors Field for a Colorado Rockies game.

The sun sets over the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains and is reflected in the high rise building glass over the LoDo (LOwer DOwntown) section of Denver as viewed from an upper deck at Coors Field.
I took this for the brilliant sunset reflection and the urban environment of lampposts and construction cranes.

Color version of live solo performance of my granddaughter during Bishop Dunne High School Revue. She overcame extreme shyness and anxiety through practice, stage coaching by drama teacher, and RayBan sunglasses. This was taken from the edge of stage left using my 55-300mm Sony lens attached to my Sony Alpha58 DSLR ISO800 1/100 sec f/5.6 Exp -0.3.

Managed to salvage this rose bush and almost missed the opportunity to photograph the floral world in my own backyard. Allowed the rose bushes to go wild over the last couple years; last fall did major pruning and results are satisfactory for the recovery.
Here, with the late afternoon bright summer sun backlighting the single last rosebud of the year applied diffuse, reflected filler flash to bring out the front petal colors while maintaining the translucence from the sunlight.

My sister-in-law listens intently to family stories told by her siblings around the table after a brunch in honor of the 80th birthday of the oldest. Lighting was complicated by the sliding glass door across the room in front of her and the bright yellow kitchen walls.

Like the brilliant reds and yellows of these Goblin Blanket Flowers, native to Colorado's high mesa prairie ecosystem.

A scraggly pair of Shasta daisies standing tall in our High Alpine Meadow, front yard, near Denver International Airport. Taken to share with Limes Wright after an excellent shot of UK seacoast Moon daisies.

Young couple locked into an extended French kiss atop the Areopagus Hill ignoring the panorama of Athens, Greece, laid out before them and the Acropolis behind them.

Based on the roses, he is obviously into her; however, her body posture says, "I am just your friend." This was one of a series of young couples seen around the Acropolis, Athens, Greece. Here they are seated on the crest of Areopagus Hill.

Looking into Crooners Martini Bar on board #CoralPrincess. Being a morning riser was able to get many shots before others became active.

Card and game room #CoralPrincess. The ship carried a wide variety of board games and picture jigsaw puzzles. Daily an open period was available for pick up/party bridge games. To the right, a computer screen can be seen in the background glowing in the on board Internet Cafe.

Had placed flash about 20 feet away at ground level and reflecting off ship's wall to judge effect and practice with wireless, off camera firing.

I cannot decide which is larger: Her loop earrings or her smile at catching me shooting during her performance? This young latina was the pianist of the ship board quartet performing almost nightly in the Wheelhouse Lounge on board #CoralPrincess.

Wavelets create dappled light on prow of Coral Princess, which is docked to disembark passengers from Panama Canal cruise. Wish I had realized name was emblazoned on right side, would have tried to change light settings to show this detail; however, bright sun would likely have blown out lit portions of hull.

I am looking at using this as background for an advertising sheet. The goal is to generate photo session appointments in similar photo-collages of motorcycles, classic, muscle, and low rider cars, and off road vehicles. The shots were taken in 2 sessions; one late night to capture something before the operators left in the morning; 2nd in early morning sunlight as sun crested the mountain ridges to the east. Anyone have suggestions on action text? Message me, thank you.

Thinking of the cartoon series, "Gargoyles" and movie, "Hunchback of Notre Dame", this night shot made me think of gargoyles as living beings perched between heaven and earth to rescue mankind from itself. This was taken with a Sony Alpha58 DSLR, during a pre-cruise night walk near the University of Venice and Basilica Maria d' Salut, Basilica of Praise to Saint Mary, while trying to learn the capabilities of a new tech-toy. Found the in camera HDR process could produce interesting low light results.
