A couple multiple exposure images from this week’s total Lunar eclipse. The clouds rolled in when the eclipse was at its maximum, then cleared for a while before covering the sky again.
This second multiple exposure was taken with a wide angle lens and shows how the moon progressed across the sky.
Images from the Loudoun Photo Club Macro workshop. An amazing variety of items to photograph, not nearly enough time to even scratch the surface.
I don’t do very much with astrophotography, but I thought I’d give it a try with the triple conjunction yesterday evening. Venus is on the left, Mars is above it and slightly to the right, the crescent Moon is on the right, partially illuminated by earthshine.
I was honored last week to have one of my images selected by Steve Beltz to receive 1st place in the Advanced Color category of the Loudoun Photography Club’s “Water” competition. It’s a wonderful tribute to our Founding Fathers.
A few photos from the Broadlands Community Church Christmas Eve Candle Light Service. I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas.
It’s hard to believe that though I’ve lived in Northern Virginia for several years, until today I had never visited Morven Park in Leesburg, VA. Absolutely beautiful grounds and a rich history. The house and museum were closed, but I enjoyed capturing some images of the house and surrounding grounds.
A friend recently contacted me about taking photos of his daughter who is wanting to build her modeling portfolio. I readily agreed. She was looking for fitness themed images, so we met at a local track. Here are a few of my favorites.
My church held their annual Vacation Bible School this past week and the organizers asked me to photograph the event. The VBS was conducted by UW Sports Ministry, who combine VBS teaching with a sports camp theme. The sports included cheerleading, football, soccer, and basketball. The kids seemed to have a lot of fun. Here are a few of my favorite pictures.
I had the opportunity to visit the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco when I was on the west coast for business earlier this week. I had hoped for a nice low fog layer so I could capture an image of the top of the bridge in a sea of fog. It didn’t happen, oh well. I did manage to capture a few keepers on my two visits to the bridge (one in the evening and one in the morning). I’ll have to try again the next time I’m in the area.
While I was awaiting sunset on my first visit, I drove around to other overlooks of the bay. I found this view with a soft purple blooming flower to contrast with the steel of the bridge.
